Unwise Decisions

Humbly speaking, I believe myself to be a pretty smart guy, but I made an incredibly stupid decision that has greatly impacted my year. It all started on January 17, 2009 at 2:30pm when I posted the journal entry titled, ” The Never Ending Vacation.” I introduced and adopted the idea of nonstop outings and nonstop fun in 2009. Unfortunately, the byproduct of a Never Ending Vacation was a feeling of laziness and the lack of desire to do anything worthwhile.

When I reflected back on the first six months of my year I noticed that I went on many, many fun outings, but didn’t accomplish much. Now that I’ve identified the problem, I am directing 100% of my efforts in the coming months towards relieving the plight that I’ve created for myself. I’ve revised my new years goals, reshaped my way of thinking, and started restructuring my life. Geremy is finally ready to work again and the “2009 Never Ending Vacation” is officially over!

“A setback is a setup for a comeback!!!”
Tune in regularly to track my return!

Mocha Frappa-Whoa-no!

My FREE Mocha

Two Saturdays ago I was driving home when I remembered a lonely $5 Starbucks giftcard that has been living in my wallet for the last five months. In an effort to use the card I walked into Starbucks and ordered a tall mocha frappuccino and an apple fritter. When I attempted to pay for my exciting meal I was swiftly interrupted by a pleasant lady in her mid-30’s.

The lady stepped in front of me and handed the cashier a giftcard of her own. I politely stood waiting for the woman to complete her transaction when the cashier pointed to the woman and said “she just paid for your order.” “What? Seriously?!”

I turned to the good Samaritan woman and initiated a conversation:

Me: Did you pay for my meal?
Her: Yes *smiles*. Sometimes it’s good to confuse people
Me: Wow, how nice! Thanks a lot.
Her: No problem.

I grabbed my order and headed out the door

Me: Thanks again!
Her: Sure! I like your shirt!
Me: For real? Thanks!

I walked out the door in utter disbelief since the scary Miss Sterious said the same thing to me a week earlier!

I didn’t get the memo that “…nice shirt” is now the standard protocol for older women to woo young lads, but if it’ll get me free Starbucks then feel free to compliment my shirt anytime!
