I was unable to put the 600+ page book down until I finished it at 1:30 AM this morning.

Waves of fatigue literally were rolling down my neck muscles from sitting still so long.

Six hours of sleep later, I awoke to the feeling of being completely drained.

I was barely able to get out of bed.

But the book was good.

P.S. Thank you to all who sent me happy birthday wishes! I’m sorry I missed all of your phone calls (to those who called and sang happy birthday on my voicemail). I will attempt to return the calls as soon as I get a spare moment (hopefully sometime this evening or tomorrow).

Busy being lazy

My life has been awfully busy lately. So busy, in fact, that I haven’t updated my journal in ages.

But that comes to an end (albeit temporarily), right… now.

So what *have* I been busy doing?

Well, I’ve been playing around in Macromedia Flash 8 in an attempt to learn it.

I’ve also started my very first open source programming project up on Sourceforge!
It’s basically just a program that when you punch in a phone number, will search the white pages and return the person’s name and address information. It doesn’t work with cell phone numbers yet, but maybe some day it will.

Another thing I’ve been doing is reading. Yup. I’ve been getting back into the whole book scene again after years of hardly reading a thing. I meandered around the bookstores, reading everything from philosophy to children’s novels. I finally finished the latest Harry Potter book, as well as the #1 best seller novel this year, “Eragon”. I intend to start on the sequel, “Eldest”, here in the next couple of days.

My mind has lain stagnant for too long.

On a side note, my birthday is in 3 days. I’ll be 22 on the 24th. yay.
