So I really don't have too much to talk about today, but I do feel that setting this thing up has at some level committed me to generating material at least once and a while.
I'm back in College Station actually in the room right next door to the one I was in last week when I started this thing. I'm 28 now, and last week I was 27, so there's that. I got the most "you're almost 30" in the days leading up to my birthday than ever before. I guess though, that I'm the most -almost 30 since like ever, so that fits?
I suppose I am kind of getting ready for some of the more "adulthood" type things to set in. I was riding in the hotel van last night, and there was another crew with us. The Captain of that crew was talking about his sailboat with the First Officer. I gotta tell you, I was pretty jealous. I don't know anything about his financial situation, and I know most people live way beyond their means, but if you own a sailboat, I am making the assumption that you own a house. Do you suppose this guy is paying off a house, sailboat AND school? I am jealous of what is probably an illusion. Maybe the adulthood in reality is just the transition from debt up to your neck to debt up to your eyeballs.
Anyway, I guess I'm getting tired of blabbing about nothing. Will discuss the hike I'm planning to do Monday after it gets done. My cousin Andrew is planning on going with me which should be pretty cool. Going to Washington D.C. the day after the inauguration for some training. I hope it works out like rush hour traffic and I'm going against the flow.
