April 17, 1967 - Monday
Well, it's been 1 year since
I started taking these notes and I haven't given up yet. My only
regret is that I don't have more interesting things to put down.
When I look back I can see
how I've changed and how I've stayed the same. I can't say that I've
improved myself by taking notes but it's sure interesting.
It's funny how last year at
this time I was very insecure and wasn't sure how long I'd be staying in
Coronado. Now I couldn't be more secure as far as my future goes.
From the looks of it I'll be around Coronado for a while yet.
Today I got my first pay
check. For 24 hours I got $26.36. This isn't too much but if I
can stick with the job it should start adding up.
Just as a point of interest,
on the day's I don't work I still get up at 6 o'clock everyday I have a
test. This gives me a little more time for studying geometry.
Funny that I got A's and B's in algebra but just can't get the hang of
Oh well, here I am starting
out a new year of writing. I hope in the year to come I will be able to find
more interesting things to put down though, it doesn't look that way.
April 23, 1967 - Sunday
I spent today doing homework
and sitting in the sun. A little while ago I played volley ball with
Kirk and Pat. On Friday night I saw the movie "Night of the Generals"
and it impressed me very much.
Next Sunday daylight savings
starts and I'm really looking forward to it. When it comes it seems like
summer is almost here.
After dinner tonight I went
down to the Del Coronado just to see what was going on. The place was
quiet as a church with hardly anyone around. It really feels strange
walking around the hotel when it's like that. Royalty, presidents and
movie stars have come thousands of miles to stay at that hotel and on any
Sunday in the off season I can walk around like I owned the place. I
sat on the promenade deck watching the sun go down over Point Loma. It
was such a beautiful sight it almost seemed a shame to waste it on me.
