i basically just want to say that i'm still around. as one can imagine,
i've been real busy with my job. a new project here, a new project there,
maintaining an old project there, and all that funky stuff. i find that i
pretty much don't have any time for myself, doing things such as writing
about my adventures during the day. maybe i'll start doing those silly
email mailing lists, or just start writing longer messages here, so that
you guys won't feel like you subscribed to my update list for no reason,
since i really haven't been updating at all.
my last entry (i believe it was on the 6th of this month) was quite awhile
back. it was the last in my efforts to try and write everyday for the
month of may. once again i failed dismally, but I don't feel to bad about
let's see, what have i been up to? well, besides work... hmm.. i've been
hanging around with jack and mia a lot, after all, they pretty much are my
best friends. i did go to toronto for a little while, and had a good time,
even with the circumstances. you see, one of my better friends from my
childhood days died in a car accident. my family and i rode up to
basically pay our respects. it was sad, but at the risk of sounding
callous, i am simply going to have to move on. you can't cry and weep and
mop around because that won't solve anything, and instead i celebrated his
life and the good times we had. if anything, i'll take whatever i learned
from him and share it with others, so that part of him will never die.
during that trip toronto i was terribly sick. after the trip i was sick.
before the trip i was sick. i think i was sick for about two weeks. i
believe that i had received some sort of virus, but i can't be sure. all i
know is that i was sick as shit. sick, sick, sick. at one point I was
barfing up lovely liquids all over the place, while at another point i was
so drugged up and loopy that i couldn't walk around. it wasn't a pleasant
experience. and the kicker? i still have a fucking dry hacking cough that
gives me maddening headaches. sometimes getting some nuggets or just
downing some tylenol does the trick, but then again, it's only sometimes.
but I feel pretty good about life. i've got a good job. i've got good
friends. i have no problems with anyone at all, with the exception of my
father, which is quite sad. i'll be moving out either late june or early
july, which is nice. friends from college are home and things seem to
rolling quite nicely.
well, i've got to run, since i'm writing this from work.
p.s. i've been thinking about selling away palesky.com. what do you think?
