Having spent another very nice weekend in AZ I'm left sitting in my old room kind of confused about what "goals" I should have in my life over the next couple of years. See this is why I keep myself busy so that I don't have time to think about this crap.

Wanderlust is catching up with me and I'm feeling more and more drawn to make a move for "me". The flip side to this is I'm actually in a good-for-me relationship and work is going well (most of the time). I just got my bike and I've started to ride to work which means hopefully I'll be getting in shape this summer. I'm finally finding a place for me in Seattle, which is weird that I'm more driven to find something else, but I talk like this as if I'm going to move tomorrow, when I'm thinking like January or something.

I need to finish this boat thing this summer, if only so that I can prove to myself that I can finish one of these big projects and find out what to do with all the time I've been spending on it. Heh.

Comedy has been going well and I've been writing again, and writing well. I'm excited, I have a bunch of great gigs next month. My Dad and I were talking about it and I really don't feel as guilty as I did that I'm doing this (the comedy thing). Its like, ya I could stay home and watch a movie or play video games, or be out at an open mic. I've chosen the latter and I shouldn't be upset about that. I've proven over the last month that I can have a good social life and still be active in the comedy scene. I've been blowing off some people recently and I'm sorry if you've reached out and I haven't called back, its because I'm evaluating if I really want you in my life going forward. If you're reading this, its not you, which is funny cause I'm writing it as if its was...

One day I'm going to need to be in charge of my own business, whether its a bar, or a comedy thing, or programming, or farming, whatever. I just need to be my own boss one day if I'm ever going to ever truly be happy, thats how its looking.

On bike to work day they handed out plastic water bottles probably made with enough petrochemicals to nullify the impact of everyone riding and not driving, and of course I took one, cause they were free and had water in them and I was thirsty.

Also, I wanted to start a company that made soft drinks in pellet form and sold carbonators so you could have soda whenever you wanted, save on packaging, and the companies would save on costs since they wouldn't be trucking water all over the world. A buddy at work said, knowing out country, we would sell them right next to bottles of carbonated water, making the concept useless. Le sigh.

This weekend is going to be awesome. The sun is out. Things are good.

I became the owner of brianboshes.com again.

I have a new joke about relating Boy Scouts to fraternity life. Its going to be an interesting topic. I know what works for me now, which is good and bad. Good because when its good, its awesome. Bad, because now I know what I can't get away with, which makes the writing process much more restrictive. I've boiled it down to the word "snarky". Thats what I am, I can't be too nice or I don't seem genuine, and I can't be too mean either for the same reasons.

For instance, I can't say the word penis or talk about masturbation, but I can say that women are like LCD TVs cause I want to mount both of them against my wall.

This comes out when trying to talk about fraternity life but not being able to say "I wrote a penis on my friends head while he was passed out", how can you pass up imagery like that?!?!

Can't wait for 80 degree weather on Thurday!

Crap, I know, I gave up on this thing. I know people were reading it, but I got lazy.

This post is dedicated to D.

This weekend, in addition to riding my bike way to much, I started to lazily contemplate the idea of moving to NYC at some point in the next year or so. Some guy at a party was like, I used to work for hedge funds making internal programs. If you are a half decent developer then you can get a job over there easy. Crap, I've never made a move for myself in my life EVER, so this would be a difficult decision to make. Still planning on making a trip out there in Sept or something, so it might be more of an exploratory visit than purely recreational.

I still need a futon for my apartment.

Rejected by Google. Good thing I still have my current job, no?

Today I removed my profiles for online dating. That was a fun experience that everyone should try at least once, so they can appreciate meeting people in normal ways. By "normal" I mean in bars and parties where you make your only judgments based on looks and if their voice annoys you, and not 26 points of compatibility.

Web 2.0 my ass...

You may have been tempted to make sudden changes in your daily routine or in your diet, but now realize that shaking everything up isn't the best way to make progress. Instead, look for ways to add excitement to your life without turning it upside down. Being creative while working within the restrictions you've already accepted can accomplish more, especially while your key planet Venus is channeling Saturn's stability.
