It's been a quiet weekend and I'm spending my
time catching up on town hall business and managing the mailing list for a
tree hugger organization I help out. We have about 1300 addresses on our
e-mail list and when we send out a newsletter, I use a special bulk e-mail
program to get the job done. Our e-mail addresses are legitimate subscribers
but the mailing program is the type used by spam businesses that send out those
annoying unsolicited e-mails. Itís been an education learning the program
but disappointing to see just how easy it is to send untraceable email. I
get over a hundred spams a day and I now see itís never going to stop. On
the other hand, it sure is comforting to know that Iíve been selected for a
free personalized weight loss kit from Instatrim. Itís just what I need
before I contact all those ďHot Russian BabesĒ that are waiting for my call.
Iíll use the free cell phone I get after I save $1,000 while getting my free
refinance quote from www.loanripoff.com

Kirk took his drivers test last Thursday
and didnít get past the first part. The thing that surprised me was how
calmly he took it. It didnít seem to bother him at all. One of my problems
is Iím afraid to try anything because Iím afraid of failing. If I was a
little more like Kirk Iíd be much more successful. Iíve made a resolution
for this year in school. Iím going to take part in activities and clubs. I
want my high school years to be more than just learning. Before, I was
afraid to join anything. I was afraid of meeting people and drawing
attention to myself. I think Iíve learned that itís about time that I let
the real me out. If I donít stop hiding Iíll never amount to anything. Iíve
got to search for opportunities, not wait for them to jump out at me.
Barry came home Friday and things are really back to normal. It seems like
Iím in a real family again.
On Friday I went to the airport with Noel. Barry came in a 8:46 and he
really looked different. Mainly because he normally has long hair and now
itís cut off.
We had planned on going out on the town but Barry's luggage didnít come in
till 3 hours later. There was nothing left of the night so we just went
He hated his work but he got on a few fires and at least heíll have
something exciting to remember. Barry worked for the government fire
fighters but next year he hopes to work for the state. They hire at 17 so
Iím going to apply.
School starts in a week but as usual I donít mind too much. After a boring
summer anything is good. It seems that at the beginning of every school
year, Iím anxious to start. I know I wonít like it but I get so curious to
see what the year will be like.
This week Kirk and I are planning on doing a lot. This means Iíll spend some
of the money Iíve been earning all year. Weíre going to see ďThe Sound of
MusicĒ again and Iím really looking forward to it.
