More Snow

After reading people's comments on Monday I have come to the conclusion that I am going to continue the journal in the method I find most satisfying to me. It seems to be the general consensus to do what I want to do and I thank you all for your support. I guess if I keep it how I want, it will actually be much more entertaining, that is how it all started, right.

Well the snow just keeps falling, the weather people are saying it has snowed something like 11 of the last 14 days. It doesn't bother me, I think it looks nice, despite the fact it causes people to drive too cautiously. Which reminds me of how I have changed my commute and didn't say anything about it. I know many of you don't take the commuter rail, but they doubled the cost of parking and in protest I have gone back to the Malden Center Orange Line commute. While the commute now generally takes less time it can be a bit more stressful, a perfect example would be my commute home on Monday. The early bird at the garage is $6, to qualify, you have to be in by 9AM and out by 7PM. I was giving Nissa a ride home from Boston and we were cutting it close and the train just stopped at Wellington, we finally got to Malden Center at 6:57, so I gave her my bag and ran for the station only to realize I left my keys in the bag. I got the keys and took off again and drove down the garage as fast as I could and luckily made it, because if I didn't the price would have tripled to $18. I don't know how they can get away with this, the pricing costs are just sick. Moral of the story is you can't win when it comes to parking.

Something else I just don't understand is work. Over the past couple of weeks, we have had to do these quick projects for the big bosses, involving large amounts of data and very tight deadlines. Now I actually enjoy doing these projects, because ironically I am not a big fan of planning at work, but we finished the projects as requested and we have since done the project over again three times using different methods each time. A major reason for this is because the results of the first version weren't 100% correct, now it was mostly due to the poor source of information we used and not because of our programming. The last couple of times they have requested we use different sources and it has just gotten absurd. I just laugh now when they make me run the same process again, when I know nothing has changed. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!

Well that is is for now. I hope y'all have a great day and enjoy the lovely snow.

He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth bite to eat and he's rolling
Never changes a thing
The week ends the week begins
