A brief shot.

Hi folks, how goes it?

That's brief, right?

Anyway, I thought I would say hi to everyone here, whether you read me or not.

I had a friend tell me something that I had to agree with. I'm too softhearted and not aggressive enough.

He's right. I have to have my buttons pushed a certain way to get me to react the way I should at times. Too laid back. The ambition is there, and so is the go get'em attitude, but it's buried under a mountain of b.s. And it has getting shoveled off, slowly, but it's coming off. Things have been more positive as of late. And I can feel things, mentality wise, changing. I just wish I wasn't so analytical.

The moment after writing that last sentence, I thought about how that sounds to me, how that looks, what it says, whether I buy into it, whether it needs to be rephrased, what I need to do to change that, how I need to respond to self-criticism.

Like I said, I wish I wasn't so analytical.

But my friend did tell me he was impressed with one of my abilities - multitasking. I can be handling money (counting it), and he'll be talking (I'll be listening). When he needs me to answer, and I'm in the middle of a count, I put up a finger to let him know one moment, and when I'm ready, I give the answer, so he can continue. Math skills - loves the fact he can bounce numbers off my head and I'll know the answer quick.

Saw an old friend from high school. A woman I liked as a person back then (which says a great deal). We shot the breeze for a bit, catching up. I enjoyed it immensely; it put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

I rearranged the room in preparation for the bed. I have the matress picked out, the sheets bought. Waiting on the frame to arrive, and to find out if Macy's has the duvet/comforter I want. I'll go all the way to Portland/Seattle if I have to to get this. If no one has it, I'll be annoyed. It just means I have to go with my alternate plan. Not too bad, but not what I wanted.

When I get it all done, I'll take a picture and post it.
