Quick Fix Focus 2.22.10

Know what you are doing.
One way to get travel miles.
Words not in your average dictionary.
Guide to having more patience.

Process your mistakes and missed opportunities, understand what you did wrong and learn so that you won't make that same mistake again...and from that point on, spend as little time thinking about them as possible.

What "could have been" is irrelevant. Regret is a waste of time.

Continually watch for and remove toxic people, habits, and situations from your life.

Don't buy things you can't afford.

Find a hobby that has a large friendly community and organises plenty of events.

Look after yourself and treat yourself well.

Do not worry, eat three square meals a day, say your prayers, be courteous to your creditors, keep your digestion good, steer clear of biliousness, exercise, go slow and go easy. Maybe there are other things that your special case requires to make you happy, but, my friend, these, I reckon, will give you a good life.

Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.

Find things that make you laugh. Do them a lot.

Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are.

Get enough rest, get enough sunshine. Forgive yourself, forgive others. Take nothing for granted.

Making money on the underdogs 2.10.10

Who would have thought that the Saints of all teams would end up winning Super Bowl 44? Certainly not me. I would have given the 7 figuring Manning is too good of a leader to let his team down. Granted New Orleans was flat the first half, but boy did they turn it around with some gutsy calls to start the second half. Which, was a good thing since my square was moved on the last second FG and then back on again for the third quarter. Too bad the poker game didn't go as well giving the money back to the house.

Snow up and down the East coast but very little in the mountains. Too bad since I would have liked to have gone snowboarding again.

Looking for vacation time for 10 days straight since the dumbest corporate policy known to man is in effect and has little chance of being overlooked.

Doing laundry down the hill sucks. Especially during the winter time. Having a car would be easier but not worth the hassle of parking.

Completion date for the renovations is most likely sometime in June or July. December 18, 2009? Anyone? ......

Awesome trips down to watch the Marquette games in Providence and Hartford. A train and bus trip were decent, but even better with a couple of Trinity brew Growlers.

Make things happen 2.3.10

Random conversation overheard walking past Porter Square: Three middle aged guys talking, conversation topic overheard "when i sHti my pants it is really uncomfortable." guy #2: "Yeah, when I do, I think it's the comfort of the underwear and if you can ride it out, maybe you riding too loose." Really? WTF?

TOD: Would you rather give up cheese or chocolate for the rest of your life?
