for a change i'm actually ahead of schedule. what was supposed to be due end of the day tomorrow i already finished today. not that it'll matter too much, since i still have plenty of other work to do. nevertheless, a small victory is still a victory, and i go to bed tonight not feeling overwhelmed like i have the past few weeks. lunch and dinner came in the form of leftover meat buns and hot & sour soup. i paced around the house when i needed to take a break. a shower before lunch, and a shower after i finished work. i didn't set a single foot outside today. but you know what? going outside is over-rated. all the cool kids are becoming hermits and hiding in their homes these days.
remember that dying fish? well it's still alive! though barely. it had been in my bathroom, but i felt sorry for it and decided to return it back to the tank, its final days spent in its home, maybe hoping for some miracle that it might survive after all. well, tonight i found it at the bottom of the tank again, twitching, so i decided to take it out again, so it could have a dignified death in a clear vase.
finally, this past weekend i found out when my court date is, the last day of january. i get to plea my case before a court magistrate, regarding the moving violation citation i received back in october when i almost ran over an old lady crossing the street with my motorcycle. i figured it couldn't hurt to contest it, although i'm not optimistic i'll be able to clear the charges. this means i'll probably have to shave and get a haircut, because right now i look like a mountain man.
