I think that most of you will agree with me that tone of the board seems a little harsh right now. It's tough to spin out of a negative cycle once it starts, so I'm worried. I depend on this board (which may or may not be pathetic depending on your view) for support, laughs, and a rousing dose of 'hey there, YOUR life is not so bad. So my motivations are relatively pure (or horribly tainted, again based on your view) to try and kickstart something positive.

Now, nothing too much is going right in my life right now. And I lack the sympathetic voice to spin it all into an amusing tale. But even though the sky is both physically and metaphorically grey here, there is much that is worth while.

Why don't we all just try to live in THIS moment. The one where beginnings are always possible, the end of debt is getting closer every day, and life is looking pretty d@mn good, even though it may, well, suck, just a little. Part of my life philosophy is based on the mathematical laws of progression. The direction you take now, the patterns you put in place have a limit, a goal, an endpoint. If you add just a little bit more than the situation demands, you will get to that magical nirvana - infinity. If you always aim short, you can trudge endlessly forward and you will not meet your goal. A little 'feel good' philosophy, but mathematically sound.

now going off to do some studying. Life is too short to be underpaid forever... ;P
