And nobody told me the circus was in town. The Shriners circus, so I won’t be going, but the tent is always a fun sight. I have a thing about crowds and people and paying exorbitant amounts of money to have fun. I’d rather pay hundreds of dollars for gas to drive somewhere and chill for a couple days than pay slightly less exorbitant amounts of money to ‘have fun’ close to home. Road trip, yo.
The only circus I’m really interested in seeing is Cirque du Soliel. And even then, only when it’s at a theatre specifically designed for their act, or it’s in their traveling tent. I’ve seen three different shows of theirs. The first was in Vegas, the second was in Seattle, in a tent, and the last one was here in town, which was definitely my least favorite show because of the modified arena.
Random Friday stuff.
Now THAT is some interesting news.
Half of me is like:
Damn the man! They can’t take our land!
And the other half is like:
Dude, just pay the fees and put the guns away.
The only thing better than getting off work and having coffee is getting off work and having coffee without wasting plastic. Yay environment!
Strawberries taste better, but cherries are way better for backpacking trips. They don’t get mushy.
I take off my shoes as much as I can. During summer I’m constantly shoeless. During winter however… Well, a guys gotta keep his feet warm somehow, right?
Every day. I live with her. (Real catch right here).
I’m finding it hard to think positive today.
The bad: I have no clean clothes. The thing about laundry is it takes so much time to do. Yeah, I can throw it in there and sit around doing something else until it’s done, but come on, if I’m going to motivate myself to get outside and go read a book at a coffee shop or something, I don’t want to wait a couple hours I want instant motivation gratification.
This part got deleted! Something something work.
I didn’t get that job.
I’ve been having dreams of drinking. I won’t, but it’s on my mind.
I guess I’m still learning how to love being lonely. I just need to get better at it.
I know that transitional periods in people’s lives are difficult. Mine has been going on for almost a year now; I’ve just been (purposely?) oblivious to that fact until yesterday.
The good: My tax refund (if the numbers are right) is going to be enough to buy a car and pay for my certification test. The tricky part comes with passing the certification test. It’s been what, four months since I’ve been immersed in the material from college? I’m hoping the text part of it has stuck, not just the practical part.
I have everything I need, just not everything I want, and I’m not where I want to be.
