Another day, another year: 10-27-2011

23 oceans. 23 skies. 23 failures on 23 tries. 23 finds-me's. I'm in 23rd place. With 23 dropouts at the end of the day.

Today means another day. Today means another year.
Are you any closer to who you are? Are you any further from the start?

King for a day is what you are. And jester is for the rest.

Fighting Upstream

It's so easy to go with the flow
To go with the old nature
But to fight upstream
To fight against the tide
To fight and keep fighting
That is where life is
Where true life is
Learn to fight
Learn to fight for life
At stake is eternity
At stake is forever

Moco Coco (the Serve and Protect kind)

So I'm driving down Lasila on the South side and I'm halfway through the red. To my left I see it turn green as I'm in the middle of the intersection. I look in my rear view and what do I see?
Yep, copper en una Moco Coco.
I'm like, "I'm dead."
So he's like, "So what happened at the light back there?"
And I'm like, "Well, it turned yellow before I was ready to brake..."
*He asks for license and registration.*
& I'm like, "Y'know, I'm in training to be an elementary school teacher. Here's my placard, and since I just graduated with my BA, this car's a graduation present, so I'm not sure where my registration is. We're gonna register it in a couple weeks. It used to be my uncle's."
And he's like, "So your uncle knows you have it? You didn't steal it or nothin' like that?"
I lol.
"You know it's $500 for running a red?
"Yeah, I know, and I'm sorry."
"When did you graduate?"
"Last Fall."
"Ok then. Here's your graduation present." *Hands back my license & registration*
"Thank you! What's your name, sir?"
"Officer R."
"Thank you sir!"
Sweeeeeeeet. But really, saving maybe 30 seconds isn't worth a $500 fine.
Leave early and don't be in a rush. If you're late, you're late. Being late (usually) won't cost you $500.

"New Wheels"

So the dad surprised me with the KIA today. I'm driving home from School (O.F.L.E.) and he calls up and says he needs a ride to Uncle T's. He says (on the way) that Uncle T. needs help with some stuff, and that we should go raid the pantry. As I'm walking to the door, he calls me back and tells me to close my eyes, and voilĂ , there are the keys to the car! It's got AWD (if needed), a nice stereo (with iPOD plugin mind you), power window/doors, faux wool seats, and a roof rack. I'd wanted a SUV for practical fishing purposes (like parking off 152)  or driving in the snow (if needed). It's also got some zip, a nice heater, and runs well.

Not a bad graduation present at all!
