Class B

On Thursday I got my Class B Commercial Driver's License. So I'm officially a SLO RTA "coach operator" (That's fancy for bus driver). I'm proud of myself. Is it my dream job? Far from. But is it a solid job I can feel good about? Definitely. In a few months hopefully I'll have benefits like paid time off, paid holidays and health insurance. The pay isn't the greatest but considering I was looking at jobs paying as low as $10/hr this ain't bad. And from what I've heard there is a lot of opportunity for extra hours and overtime. I'm not going to be rich by any stretch but hopefully I can start paying down some of my debt obligations and live a little more "comfortably". Oh, and get my car fixed, and save to move, and pay my car insurance. Etc, etc etc.

Now is the time I really need to start focusing on my health. No more excuses. After I each sushi with Sean and Krystal of course.

Gay Marriage

I cried today.

I cried today because gay men and women in my HOME STATE of CALIFORNIA will soon have the right to marry.

I cried today because the Federal Government of My Country will now recognize legally married gay citizens.

I cried today because The United States of America became A More Perfect Union.

We have a long way to go in the fight for equal rights for gays in the country, but there is no doubt that today was a GOOD DAY.

Power Outage

Right now the power is out in AG. Its kind of eerie. Strange how quiet it is. I guess this is how it was everywhere not too long ago. Amazing how much we rely on electricity.  I did find a few candles in the house. And I have my flashlight I just bought. So I guess things aren't too bad. Its a Sunday night and I should be heading to bed anyway.

Oh wait, my cpap needs power. Looks like if I do get some sleep I will be restless.

Full Moon

I miss Alta. There I said it. I know I'm not supposed to think it much less say it but it's true. No, I don't think we should be together. And no, I don't have realistic hopes that we will be. But I do miss many aspects of her. When I see a full moon like tonight it makes me think of her. She was a wonderful, beautiful woman and I'm grateful for the fun times we had together. She saved my life in a lot of ways.

Anyway... back to the present. There is a full moon tonight and it's GORGEOUS. It's a "Super Moon". Basically the biggest one of the year. I wish I had a companion to share it with. I got Chino at least right?

As for the eating better initiative I have to be honest and admit it ain't going so well. Now, it's not as bad as it was a few months ago where I was almost punishing myself by eating as much as possible. I have shown restraint at certain times recently. Just tonight I was going to hit 7-Eleven and get some candy and I didn't. I have some cake here at the house I could still eat but I knew if I got candy at 7-Eleven I would feel compelled to eat it all. And there have been other times where I took the less calorie route. Trying to abstain from sugar has definitely been a challenge. Once I get those cravings it's like I have to fulfill it or else it will just simmer in my head all day/night. I need a Higher Power.

Work, Work and more Work

Just noticed I haven't posted in a while. I've been working like crazy. I definitely need to adjust my Domino's hours or I'm going to burn out. It is nice to know that I'll have a little money this month though.

So with all the work I've slacked off on the healthy eating and exercise. I know... no excuses. The trainer at RTA puts out candy on the table everyday.  I try not to eat too many but a few always make their way into my mouth. One thing good I've done while there is I always take the stairs. Getting in shape would really help with my job too. Things like the pre-trip and strapping in wheelchair people will be SO much easier if I didn't have as big a gut. I just have to keep chugging along and try to improve.
