Valentine’s Day

I had a good one. I feel like I’m really good at choosing presents for people and making a day special.

I’ll always think of millionaires candy at this time of year. It was a big seller at my dads store during this time of the year.

I’m still dreaming of a dog. Reading books and talking with the family. Maybe this summer? Who knows.

Headed back to the doctor today. MRI on my knee and nerve conduction test. I also have a horrible case of tennis elbow.

Supposed to get a new tattoo Thursday.

Have to work Saturday.

My birthday is Friday. I’ll be 40. Don’t know what to think about that.

the black gate

I worked at Mississippi’s State of the State last night. It’s always been interesting working in and around the capitol building. Long day and late night though.

Looks like I’m going to have a good turnout for my “I need to learn how to play Smash Brothers WiiU” get together Saturday. That’s good for me, I need the¬†socialization. I’ve always been envious of people that have long friendships.

I continue to work toward tabletop gaming, Malifaux at this point.

I am really, really enjoying “the black tapes podcast” I can’t recommend it enough.

We had snow flurries off and on all day today. I will never forget the first time I saw snow in Mississippi.  I was probably around eight.

I finished “the message podcast”. It was pretty good I recommend it. I continue to approach the ending of “school live”. Definitely an interesting Anime I recommend it.

I really would like to start a RPG on both my Vida and my DS. I am currently playing through fallout new Vegas on my 360.

Working Man

I have been working since age 13. I didn’t have a choice in the matter, started working for free at my dads pharmacy. Six days a week in the summer and every Saturday year round.

I learned a lot about the world working there. It was way different than my upper middle class private school upbringing. I saw girls buying their first pregnancy tests, people who couldn’t read or write, addicts, it probably deserves it own series..
