Time for a change

Don't worry it is not a change to the journal, I think we finally have that situation resolved. The change is with my life, the other night I was complaining (believe it or not) about how I feel like I am not living up to my potentional and how it is lame that I live at home. The person I was complaining to said, "Only you can make yourself change." Which really struck me as being correct. I have no right to complain about certain aspects of my life since it is my own fault and while I guess technically I can complain to myself, but complaining to somebody else is just putting them in the middle between me and me. So I won't bore you with the details, but the bottom line is that I have decided it is time to move out ASAP (especially since my mom was giving me crap about how I commute to work T vs. Commuter Rail), learn some new computer skills (ie. J2EE and JSP stuff) to further my career at State Street (1 year 10 months til i am vested) and finally get a dental check up. So let the games begin, I am trying to figure out where I want to live, so if anybody has thoughts on where that should be post a comment. I am thinking Newburyport, a lot of you will say close to Boston, but aside from shortening my commute, I don't see any other reason for moving any close.

Changing gears, I was thinking today about how of all the people I know, I say my name the least. Think about it, the only time you say your own name is when introducing yourself or talking to yourself. Seems kind of weird, also on the same note, you probably look at yourself less than most people do (depending on your level of vanity), which is also strange. Think about it how often do you look in a mirror, getting ready in the morning, then every time you go to the bathroom and then when you clean up for the night. Now think about your coworker, they get to look at you for a good part of eight hours depending on how your seats are arranged. Just a thought I had.

If you thought your eyes were sore from staring at your monitor all day check out the links on the It Hurts Page. Check out my favorite screen.

To the LJsters out there, you guys have been busy, I came back from the weekend and had to read about 15 different entries. A couple more friends and I will be coming to work just to read LJs. It is fun reading them though, well except Ry's when he makes digs at Dave. So Ry now its my turn, I think Bjork's singing is similar to either scraping silverware on a plate or running fingernails down a chalkboard. Check out Celebrity Jeopardy with Bjork and Dave. We can both get a laugh out of it.

Mood System Explanation
I have stopped using the canned moods from the LJ and put in the new Keeg mIc/mac mood system. Basically how it works is the micro mood defines how you feel at the current moment on a scale of 1-10, for example if you are running late and are stuck in traffic, your micro mood would be low like a 2. The macro mood defines the basic average micro mood over the last few months and it is on a scale of 1-100. So while you may be having a bad day (low micro) the general state of your life could still by great (high macro). It is gaining support in many circles hopefully it will start a new LJ craze.

Isn't it strange
How we move our lives for another day
Like skipping a beat
