One morning I am going to wake up, look around, grab all my shit and move out. And soon that will be easy to do, cause I won’t have much stuff at all. When I moved into my first bachelor apt, I had two garbage bags worth of stuff, maybe four, I was probably 16. It was me and two friends on the subway – from Pape to Wellesley station, walk over to the apartment and the move was done! Didn’t need no ass cracks and a truck, just me, my hands and my feet and a few friends. Perfect!

There a minimalist show in my watchlist. I have lots of clothes and shoes to give away – I need to channel my impulsive buying power into other areas of my life. Sometimes I see stuff that still has the price tags on it and I wonder, why did I buy this? I know though, at moment, I would not have been able to walk away. It’s so very painful to leave an unneeded thing on the rack. smh. Well awareness is only an eighth of the battle.

One of our engineers (not the ones from Prometheus) is throwing a summer pool party at his place in August – I’m really excited. Perfect timing cause I got my second vaccine. It’s been so long since we’ve gotten together, very low key, meaning I don’t have to dress up. Those are the bestest get togethers ever! I may have to bring a few vegan burgers, but no big deal. Our HR lady makes the best grilled chicken. The seasoning makes it.

Dee made this at a painting party a few years back and she was going to throw it out. I’ll be even more happier when I can draw/paint like this. I’m gonna put it somewhere so I can see it first thing in the morning and at bedtime. It will remind me of Dee and where I wanna be.

Didn’t get sick today either. Only my arm was painful but I didn’t get any fever, chills, headaches, etc. I just took it easy and read all day, although I always struggle with reading for work cause it doesn’t feel like I’m working but I won’t focus on that cause I know the reading I do is good for work. But you know how it is, the thought still enters my brain.

There’s a trolley every 15 minutes. The opportunity in front of you may seem once-in-a-lifetime. But opportunities are numerous. It is usually better to wait for or seek another than to rush into one without performing due diligence – whether buying a car, house, or company. A successful entry into a bad venture may be far worse than missing out entirely on a good venture.

Geeze … I have a lot of tattoos and they’re pretty detailed. I will have to simplify for the art work
