When all else fails...

So what's one to do when one runs out of things to do? Why update one's blog of course. Of course now the problem is finding things to write about.

School sucks. Well, I mean its not school that sucks I guess, just my reaction to it. It just feels so, blah. I don't know if its just my classes, or my schedule, or maybe just my personality, but this semester seems to be dragging by already. And its only the third week.


This weekend is looking up. First of all its a long weekend, which is always nice. Secondly, my brother-in-law is coming down from Nashville to go to a couple of baseball games this weekend. Poor guy is a Reds fan. Keep him in your thoughts. Of course what sucks is that by the time this weekend rolls around, gas will cost $12.95 a gallon. At that rate 2 trips to Atlanta will cost me... Um slightly less that $3,000. I didn't do the math, its just a rough guess.


I guess I should be thankful for what I have. A loving wife, a good group of friends, my health (such as it is). I mean I've got one hand in my pocket, and the other's giving a victory sign. So to speak. But its human nature to complain. Ever notice that? No matter how great things are for someone, he or she will always find something wrong. Of course what one guy may see as a problem, others would see as a boon. But that doesn't make it any less of a problem for the first guy. I'd like to think that most of my problems are money related. That if I could just win the lottery, most of my problems would go away. Sure, I'd be out of debt, able to buy a home, and not have to worry about working for the rest of my life, but there would be some problem that would take over my life. Of course, having said that, if anyone has an extra $20-30 million lying around, send me an e-mail, and we'll test my theory. Any takers? No?


All of that said, I have to just relax and see where life takes me.

I hear Blahvegas is nice this time of year.

I'm funny dernit.

I don't want to be one of those people, but I took this quiz today and felt the need to share. Enjoy 'n stuff

Update: I know it looks like crap. I said I was funny not good at this stuff. You can decifer it.

the Wit

(71% dark, 34% spontaneous, 26% vulgar)

your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're
probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You
realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons'
philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most
other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

You probably loved the Office. If you don't know what I'm
talking about, check it out here:

PEOPLE LIKE YOU: Jon Stewart - Woody Allen - Ricky Gervais

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

One fish, Two fish, Blowfish, Bluefish

Well, it has been a while, and I think Wesley has endured enough having his picture at the top of this page, so here I am making another post.

Things have been happening recently, but obviously I haven't thought any of them important enough to write about.

Nevertheless, here we are.

School started last week, and it didn't suck. I got called on in Trust and Estates on Friday, but I didn't embarrass myself, which is always a plus. It was good to see everyone again, though I don't see everyone as much as I did last year. Except for Shawn, Dix, and Anuj. The four of us have every class together, but we're not too sick of each other yet.

Second year, for me anyway, is more laid back. (Not having any journal work to do helps there.) I'm not living in fear before every class. One thing I do live in fear of is interviews. I worry first of all, about not getting any. And if I do happen to get any, I've had one so far, I'm even more frightened. Whether its getting an interview, then a job, or just generally having to move on to 'real' life, I'm scared to death.

As Anuj often says, "everyone gets a job," of course I know that's true, in theory. And while my grades aren't Anuj caliber, I'm not at the bottom of the class, so I'm pretty sure I'll be one of the 98% of the people employed at nine months. Knock on wood.

In other news, Belinda has a new job that she's liking much more than her old one. Its much closer to home, which means I actually get to see her now, which is nice. Hopefully she can relax more and be happier than she was last year.

I think that's good for a post. These will be coming more regularly again as being back in school gives me more to write about.
