This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

a little bit of this and that.

work has finally smoothed out to a more reasonable amount of busyness. which leaves me enough time to post a quick update. too bad there's not much to update on... other then finally being somewhat relieved from the stress from dealing with an insane time table for a project at work. i think it's time the IT fun coordinator plans a major event.. but i seem to be free of ideas at the moment.. something outside of the office would be ideal. we need it.

over the past week i have dusted off my guitar and viola.. and starting to rebuild the calluses on my left hand fingertips. plucking away at such standards as stairway to heaven.. it'll be awesome. hopefully i'll be able to pick up piano again soon too.

this past saturday, went out with dru and roz&d to celebrate a friends birthday.. at a hookah bar. it was pretty interesting.. but i stuck to wine instead of trying the hookah.. i didn't want to embarrass myself.. since i had no idea what the procedure was.. and having never smoked before.. i imagined myself trying then choking on the strawberry flavored.. smoke? afterwards we attempted to go some place where dancing could occur.. but we failed miserably, despite staying out til 2am.

this week the cold arrived.. and the so called 'ice storm' was rather uneventful. after having it hit pretty much all four years i was in Austin.. this was nothing. but the cold does make it that much harder to drag myself outta bed each morning. and i need to really start running again.
