(no subject)

So... what should I post about today?

Ummmm... I went out last night. I picked up Niki and we went to the mall, mainly so I could pick up a poster I was having framed. It's a silkscreen print of the lighthouse on Alcatraz. It's pretty neat, and the frame turned out good. I haven't exactly decided where to hang it, but I think it will be in my kitchen area. After doing our mall thing we went to Target, which is always a treat. Target rules.

Now I'm back at work again, and I'm alone. Chris has class until 12:30 or so, and Joe is out for some reason unknown to me. The boss is off at meetings as usual. For working on a team of four, I sure seem to spend a lot of time alone. Might as well crank up the tunage.

Today I weigh 207 lbs.

Remember June 29th?

I forgot to celebrate Saturday.

On June 29th, 1998 I moved to California from Delaware. Probably one of the best things I ever did (not the smartest, however, because I did it for the wrong reason).

On June 29th, 2000 I posted my first LiveJournal entry.

Two years later my life still tumbles along on its seemingly random path. But things continue to get better. I've had a couple of steps back, but they're always followed by tremendous leaps forward. I'm just lucky that way. When I was laid off last year, I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but somehow I felt that something better would come along. And it did. I hold the same optimism for my currently non-existant love life. I've only been single for two and a half months so far, so there's not an urgent need to improve that situation. But I feel as if something better will come along. And it will.

I'm happy being single. But I'm also happy knowing I won't be single forever. I'm happy with my new apartment. I'm happy with my new job. I'm happy I have so many wonderful, caring people in my life.

I'm not crazy about my car.

Anyway, be happy. You may not have as much going for you as a movie star, or a professional athlete, or a fashion model, or your next door neighbor, but you're probably doing much better than most of the people out there.
