A step in the right direction . . .

Well, I'm going to Stanford on Monday to meet with the temp office. :oD Finally!!! Something to do!!! It looks like I'll be able to start temping soon which, naturally, means I can retire my poor little savings fund as a source of bill paying. LOL. I don't want to jinx anything, but I really am excited about this.

No more dog-watching! Thank goodness!

Now, I can relax and drink my cup of coffee and write more cover letters. *sigh*

P.S. Tune into the VP debates, guys. Obama/Biden 4 lyfe!

Sometimes, it is entirely too easy to become caught up in distractions. Particularly those that would cost us a lot for giving so much attention.

I look at my own distractions and have come to realize that I'll have to say farewell, for now at least. I don't intend to ever isolate them, but I think I'll stop seeking out them out for a while. It's come to my realization that the longer I spend pacifying myself and seeking out time-consuming activity, the more time I lose for things that are really important to me.

I have many things to be so thankful for yet I focus on the things I don't have. It's that vicious cycle that spawns from that "the grass is always greener" mentality.

Ugh. I have something to work on now . . .

Obama/Biden, guys.

I know it's not a lot, but I'm really glad to say that I ran 3.6 miles tonight. :o) Even though I really wasn't quite feeling it and was tired and wanted to turn around, I kept pushing myself (in a healthy way) and worked through the toughness. With a marathon in the future, I'm so proud of myself for starting to get in the habit of taking better care of myself. I'm making better food choices because I'm getting addicted to running. Seriously! I never thought I would honestly be able to consider myself an athlete, but I really am working towards it. I know I can do better about doing strength exercises, but I'll get there. Right now, I'm revelling in my accomplishment . . . almost four miles.

Heck yes.

Obama/Biden '08, my friends.


Think global, act local

Well, here we are.

Without trying to sound pretentious, I think there is something to be said for having a bigger goal than just getting up and making it through the day.

We'll see how well this goes . . .

Obama/Biden '08, homies. :o)
