Monday Is As Good As A Day As Any To Make A Change In One's Life. That's Why I Rolled The Pennies Lying Around My House

In a grandiose effort to procrastinate at all costs yesterday afternoon (that is, writing the letter in support of a colleague's tenure in Kentucky, organizing presentations for the labs this week, and finishing two chapters with due dates quickly approaching), I chose to:

  • Go for an hour walk at the beach in Bridgeport
  • Do laundry
  • Go for a five mile run
  • Walk to Targets to buy balloons
  • & finally, sort and count the change lying around my house.
Wola! That was a good thing because I had $51 in quarters, pennies, dimes, and nickels lying in piles on my counters. I always dump my change when I get home and should do a better job of spending it than I do.

My purpose for this post? Well, I found a way to procrastinate that was rather lucrative. $10 says I spend the $51 bucks on the Ubuntu kids this week in the English learning lab (if you bet me, that would mean I'd end up with $61 bucks).

And I'm breathing: in, out, in, out, in, out

Busy week.

  1. It's only 7:15?! You did that already?! Amazing, Bryan: you are a superhero. (Can you teach me how to run more than 3/4 a mile? I started running again when I started the CPW class and I'm stuck -- not with my writing, tho -- thank GOD).
