inspired by rjwolfx, I thought it would be a good idea to list 10 things that make me happy to be me.

1. I’m in a better place than I was in almost all ways from last year.
2. I’ve been smoke free since last June.
3. I’m living in a much nicer apartment downtown and close to everything.
4. I’ve been fufilling a goal I made to return to school and get me degree
5. I have learned to budget (mostly) well enough that I live almost as well as when I had twice as much income.
6. I have some really good friends.
7. I have a relatively new car, 2002 Kia Spectra
8. I live in one of the best citys in the world.
9. I’ve lost 8 pounds since starting weight watchers, and remain committed to losing 40 more.
10. I have a really comfortable home-life.

I have been getting several calls for work which makes me really happy. School is going well, I am really enjoying all of my classes this semester. I’m taking Web Authoring 2, a continuation of last semesters web class. Javascript which is challenging but fun, and Database Development. I’m in school pretty much all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays till 330 and then on Mon, Wed, and Fridays I have an hour class. The thing I’m thankful about is that there aren’t nearly as many assignments this semester as there were last semester. I believe its 6 for each.

On the home front things are going ok. I wish I were working but hey, when the right job comes around it will all be worth the effort. With the weather warming up and Spring having sprung (and in such a beautiful way) my desire to leave and move back to Southern Cali has subsided for the time being. I know I get this way every year around this time, the overcast winters are a real downer after 6 months. They really start around the Fall with the leaves changing, and last up until around mid-March. I really do have some unfinished goals in LA, and I do miss things about LA from time to time. Oh well, enough of the blabbering, I have to get ready for school. I sure hope they reimburse me for my books and bus pass.
