Random Giver

When I went to purchase a Trax Pass today on my way to work, someone put their ticket in the cash machine where I would have bought a pass at (they last for 3 hours), so I got to ride for free. Thank you, random giver.


The Going Gets Tough

Sometimes the going gets tough. You think you’re heading in a good direction, moving forwards, only to find out that you’re doing it all wrong, and because you did it wrong, you’ve actually set yourself back.

I just paid $82 for background checks to start my teacher certification, but when I re-read the directions on their website I discovered that I didn’t even need this. Money is so tight right now and I blew it on a background check that I don’t need! (non-refundable of course).

My Jeep overheated a few days ago while I was driving on the freeway. I immediately pulled over and parked it, but I guess it was already too late – blown head gasket. Do I have $3,000 to pay someone to fix it? No. If I had a garage to fix it myself, then I would, but I don’t.

Body pain? Yep: Sprained wrist that just won’t heal, worst part is that it makes rock climbing all the more difficult. (this really isn’t too bad, I mean, of all things that could go wrong, a sprained wrist is nothing).

This seems to be part of life however, and I’ve been here before. So, not to despair, I’ll just pick up the pieces and move on.

I’m looking into selling the Jeep to a mechanic who can fix it up for himself, and then buying a motorcycle (lower gas bill, and lower insurance). I’ll just keep on applying for my teacher certification using the correct check list this time, and I wrapped my wrist in an ace bandage today. Woot!

Life is good.


New Look

It was time for a blog makeover. I really hope you enjoy the new look as much as I do. I changed the blog title because I wanted to better reflect its purpose. This blog is a collection of William’s Notes.
