Past Rambling #1

Well, I am finally taking the advice of that guy from the County Appraisal district. I'm going to endeavor to keep a journal of my business decisions and thoughts. Since I'm doing that, I figure that I might as well also consider a journal of my personal thoughts and observations. Basically its a continuation of the personal ramblings that I've done on and off for the past number of years.

So, on that note, here we go. This being the personal section, I will try and include a somewhat appropriate or amusing quote or other such entertainment for each day's entry.

-------------Today's Anecdote/Quote/Joke------------
"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor." -Oliver Wendell Holmes
-----------------------------------------------------------

Well, this quote is particularly important to me right now. You see, lately I feel like I've been lieing at anchor and if not that then maybe drifting. Definately not moving in any sort of meaningful or satisfying direction. I dunno. Recenlty it occured to me that I have hardly done anything interesting since I got out of school. I mean I have done stuff and some of it has even been useful, but is seems like I manage to keep not quite getting around to doing important stuff. Not to mention the fact that I need to make more money. Soon. I've always wondered how I manage to do so much and have so much promise and yet I feel like I'm letting myself down in some fundamental way.

I miss my friends and I miss school. Today I got notified that my Athena account will go bye-bye on January 9th 2000 unless I am working with faculty or still affiliated with MIT somehow. I'm going to talk to Henry about that. Perhaps I can keep my MIT account and also make some money (perhaps web-design?). Otherwise, I might try and interest him or someone else in CMS with my project (well soon-to-be-project) at YHS. I need to sit down and write out what I envision and present it to Mr. Cain. If I could get going on that it would be a good thing.

Well, its late. I will continue these lines of thought in the near future. I just really wanted to get started on the whole writing stuff down. Good Night.
