Quote Du Jour:
"Never waste your time with anyone who doesn't realize how special you are. Life is too short not to have as much fun as possible. Believe in yourself and you can do anything." (Fred LeBlanc of Cowboy Mouth)

What has happened to me?

I can remember a time long ago when each day ended with the anticipation of the next. I was excited about what lay ahead of me. Now it seems I spend more time looking back on memories of the past than I do looking forward to the future. At 22, why am I so retrospective?

I asked Jessie about this. She said it seems as though "I look forward to living in the past." I think she's right. As I've said before, she is pretty smart. When opportunities come along, I jump at them... and enjoy them... but in the back of my head, I look forward to them being over so I can look back on the experience. That's insane.

Even though I got some good practice at savoring the present during the final weeks of the semester, overdosing on the past is still a problem for me. And with my entire life ahead of me, I've got to find a way to change my direction of thought soon. (0113)

I've been watching the Chicago Cubs on WGN for as long as I can remember and have been a Cub fan almost as long. What can I say? I like an underdog. Anyway, as a silent sign of support (in spite of their performance this year), I've added an ivy background to the journal. Now if I only had a couple of ice cold Budweisers and Harry Carey singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame," I'd be set. (0129)
I have officially left the fraternity of summer slackers. I've spent the past month fighting to stay productive... but I won't have to fight any more. Today, I went back to a former employer and got a summer gig. I worked there for four years once upon a time... it's gonna feel weird to go back. (2259)
