Oct 30th 2006

Lately, I've been trying to learn to play Jack Johnson's 'Better Together' on the guitar. I'm going through the acoustic guitar phase again. I think its because my friend Ryan had to move back to LA. He used to on the drums while I'm on the electric, and it was great even if it was just us two jamming.
Last week, I purchased an acoustic on Ebay. A big baby Taylor. I'm very very much looking forward to it. It's about time I put aside that super high action K-Garage acoustic my brother bought when he first began to play.

What is this world coming to when people camp out at stores to pre-order a product? Yesterday, I arrived at ToysRUs at 2am to attempt to line up for a ps3 and wii. First of all, that entrance to the store looked like a camp site. Secondly, I was told I had to be 10 hours earlier than I was to get a hold of a ps3.

Some people might think I just sound ridiculous, but I am normally at guilt of not making every second of my life. I'm not a very good procrastinator. And don't know how to lay on my back and do nothing for hours on end. I suppose a trait as such is normally what people strive for, but if you live it day in day out, life can feel murderous.

I haven't yet asked my parents about it, but they once mentioned that starting my own business would be a great experience to see what types of people are out there. Cause I'm definitely getting a good dose of that.

Times Like These

What else do you do when you're sick and home alone?

You make banana pancakes. Yep, banana pancakes. Well, was my first time and they ended up a little thicker than they ought to be. But they turned out ok. I'm not sure whether pancakes are the preferred food of choice when you're sick, but i wanted them. So yeah.

Being up at 6am and not having went to pre-order my wii or ps3 is quite dumb of me.

Wow. One of the best business books I've read for a long long while. Most business books don't tell you crap other than what is intuitive already. This book changed how I would think and work at work for the rest of my life.

On another note, if I were in a band, the Strokes would be a pretty awesome one to be in.

If my last post sounded like I'm a materialistic bastard...then don't get me wrong. Money is just how I measure my success.

I've been taking it easy over the past week. I've found that time off from work is incredibly important. I've been playing my guitar and playing video games, reading, and re-evaluating this past summer's work. I feel guilty of not getting back at my desk, but this is also probably the best time to get some rest...
