New Wheels
20080624 The big news from this week is that I have become the proud owner of a fine product from the Bavarian Motor Works.

Not much to say. It's a metallic blue 2002 330i with sport package. Saw it. Tried it. Liked it. Bought it.

With its 225 horse-power engine, the real challenge will be to learn some restraint and not collect too many speeding tickets. The acceleration on it is rather awesome.

Over a Month...
I guess it's been over a month since I've written anything here. That's really not a big deal. Most likely nobody actually goes out of their way to read this. But it is kind of therapeutic. Maybe putting something about yourself out there publically does something good for the mind?

The apartment is still a good thing. There is something to be said for independence. I don't believe it's the "best thing ever," as many first-year university students would say. Actually, it seems pretty normal to me, though I'm not a first-year student by any means. Nonetheless, for as drastic a change as it was, it didn't feel that way. Maybe all of the travel around the world in the last year prepared me. I'm not quite settled in yet; still furnishing the apartment.

Or maybe I just don't have the time to notice. If two years ago I was asked just how busy work can keep me, and someone mentioned the current workload, I don't think it would seem possible. Yet it is. "Keeps me out of trouble" indeed.

Thankfully, at this time next week, I should be in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, on a family vacation. That ought to be refreshing. My last proper vacation was to Europe, and was, frankly, hectic. Beach time might be a pleasant change of pace.

There, now all of that is out of my system. I expect to be writing more later this week.
