Clarity.

“I cant see myself anywhere but here.. the outlook seems so clear”

So this is the final job of the 2008 season for me.. I finally pulled down something that has the convenience of good gas mileage, good pay, benefits up the yin yang, and a comfortable environment with the ability to achieve and accelerate my pay quickly. Its been a tough road to pave this 2008, I look back at the first 8 months and it really has come to pass.. FINALLY. My goodness, I swear I've blogged about each and every job that I have had this year, with the hopes that it would be the one.. But nonetheless, they didn’t pan out. I can say it though, I’m not doing any temp jobs anymore, no jobs with all the right things but then one major wrong, its all come to fruition.. PHEW..I promise!

Well, except for the getting up at 6:20 every morning thing.. But I doubt that will ever come into play when it comes to my money.

I was watching Hilary Clinton’s speech this evening at the Democratic convention, and I caught myself laughing. Not at her, nor the convention ( if anything I was happy that the whole thing was centered around OBAMA), but I was laughing at my parents. And I sat back and thought about how my political views re, and how they are close to or different from my parents. How they yell at the TV when a bad thing is said about O, and I jump in and say it too.. but then it dawned on me how sometimes I say things that make the utmost sense, and they don’t even notice that they are taking a backseat to what I’ve just said and now are in full agreement with me. LOL. The son being the teacher to the parent? Sometimes it happens I guess.

Summers almost over. Its been a hot one. Off top. I mean I haven’t gone swimming once this summer.. NOT ONCE! I can actually say that I am ready for the colder weather to come so I can start rockin a pea coat again! Shoot I haven’t bbq’ed in almost a month. The urges have been lost, and I’ve been cookin in the house instead. WTF?

What you know bout goin to bed before 12? Shit I thought I didn’t know, until that 6 started showin up when my alarm beeps..

Parlay..

That's what I'm talking bout, I've only been at my current jof for 5 months and I'm ready to bounce...I think I need to be self-employed I'm tired of working for people.

Yea, summer's really over - lol. I can't swim a lick. And you know...when it comes to money - 6:20 ain't shit. I get up at 4:15 AM and have a 2 hour commute...EACH WAY.

i feel ya on the job tip. it feels good when you can sit back and survey how everything has fallen in place. glad it happened for you and you seem content with your current situation. the child schooling the parent thing definitely happens...probably more often then parents care to admit. not swimming once? blasphemy! swimming is one of my favorite activities so i can't imagine...especially i can't imagine not going in california. be safe.

what a moment... when you become soo much so an adult that your parents concede to your thinking... it's AWESOME... oh, how i understand the 6am wake up that makes the night owl shift wings... but there is always the weekend to show your true self... so live it up (i'm sure u will)
