Turn-Around?

I almost just watched an episode of Gossip Girl. I need to change my life.

I got home from FHE tonight around 9:30 and played with my brother for a bit, made myself some non-needed dessert -twice, then decided to get down to it and actually start the homework for my online class. I was quickly distracted by email and then (inevitably) Facebook. I have no idea how I'll pass this class if I keep up these habits as I am. I have become a lazy, non-productive bum.

Take away the beer and there you go

I go to work at 10am everyday (usually waking an hour beforehand) . Come home on average at 3:30pm. Then begins TV, maybe a nap, A whole lotta nothing, eat some dinner, then I'll usually do something social.

I'm actually doing very well with the social part of my life. It seems like I'm up to something evrynight. Usually sports and church things. An occasional party here and there. But honestly, as a whole, I waste so much of my day sleeping in and catching up on Seinfeld. I was inspired by John Bytheway just recently to change things up. In a book of his that I was reading, he described how he one day decided to switch up his least productive hours (10pm-12am) for his most productive (6am-8am). He began going to bed at 10pm and then waking up at 6am. This gave him 2 extra hours before school to get things done. He used this time to write his first book. Who knows what I could accomplish if I used my time more wisely like that?! I could begin doing art again, I could get back in shape, I could pass my online class!!!

I need to shape up. I'm going to shape up. I have set my alarm for 6:30am. Let's see how this goes.

Pro Bono

Text message received Oct 15, 1:02pm from Rob Greer: There is a ticket for the U2 concert available for under 40 bucks on Tuesday. We will leave about 4:30. Who wants it?



Thanks to my quick texting skills, I snagged the ticket and was thus on my way to a wonderful night shared with Bono, The Edge, and Fergie. Below is my description of the night, as dictated to one of my friends on Facebook:

...Speaking of suffering, yes the traffic was pretty crazy last night. Everytime we were going 6mph past a limo on the freeway, I’d try looking in to see if Bono was inside. Black Eyed Peas were on their last couple of songs by the time we got in. Will.i.am started talking to us about how he “got a feeling” U2 was going to be amazing tonight –then they broke into that song (And dancing commenced). Then they left and the waiting began. Not too long, though.
Oh. My. U2.
Tyler, it was amazing. With or Without You, Vertigo, Where the Streets Have No Name, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For… It was so cool because it’s their “360 tour”, so they had this round stage in the middle of all the floor people, and then they had another skinny stage ring around it with bridges connecting the two. It made it so they could reach people from the inside stage and then run around the outside one too. They said they did it to be “more intimate with their audience.” Oh, if only I could have been one of those lucky people down on the floor. They also had this huge round screen in the middle of the stage showing close-ups of the band in HD. And the videography was done so so well. Thank goodness, because my seat was like a mile away and that was the only way that I could tell what was going on down there. They did 2 encores! Oh what a heavenly night. It ended at like 11:30+traffic+being way out in Glendale =I fell asleep so I don’t even know what time it was when I got home.
