i’m drinking a beer and winding down another day. today was full of reading, volunteering, watching, searching and thinking. certainly a full day.
mmm. beer (it’s really hitting the spot tonight).
i finished Kiss Me Judas (KMJ) today at the coffee shop. i only got it yesterday so i was surprised to finish so quickly, but it was a good one. along with KMJ i picked up a book that amazon.com thinks i’ll like – 12 things that don’t make sense. while there i also picked up a book by david foster wallace, the title escapes me right now, but the excerpts of his that i’ve read have been solid, so i’m looking forward to starting it.
this afternoon i spent some time getting acquainted with a new project – volunteering. i got my hands dirty at The Steel Yard, helping clean up the site and their foundry building for an event they’re hosting tomorrow. it was a great introduction to the site and with all of the construction they’re doing at their site, i might prove to be a valuable asset to their team.
after the volunteering gig, i took a break and started watching Weeds on Netflix. i was a cautious viewer because i’ve heard quite a bit of hype around the series. i like it though. and i’ve already been warned the 4th season turns to crap, but… so far, 4 episodes into it, it’s a good show. i’m looking forward to starting The Wire this weekend too, should have disc one of season one on Saturday.
the roommate search continues. i am still looking to move closer to downtown and i’d like to pay less than $500 if that’s possible. soooo…. if anyone knows anyone looking for a place near providence, or if you know someone that has an extra room to spare and that person doesn’t hate and/or is not deathly allergic to cats, PLEASE, let me know. i’m also looking for some full-time employment. not an easy thing to do in this economy. i’ve been in increased contact with some of my college peers and the economy is rough on a lot of industries right now, but especially construction. it’s challenging to stay positive, but most days, i can swing it.
all in all, there’s a lot to think about. it’s a new challenge in my life.
in other news, miller lite tastes so good some days. this is one of those days. if only i had more of it; i’m finishing the last one. it went deliciously with the curry that i made tonight. i put the sauce with some ‘fiesta veggies’ and chickpeas and it turned out great.
tomorrow will come to early, helping set-up the site at The Steel Yard for the Senator’s visit.
