Am I Missing Something?

Yeah, I know it’s been awhile since I posted last, but I have excuses.  Lots of excuses, bwahahahah.  Let’s see, Monday I went climbing, Tuesday Colleen and I went to look at packs at Champaign Surplus and there was a climbing meeting, Wednesday we went climbing again, and Thursday we met her dad in Springfield for dinner.  See, I told you I got mad excuses!

Anyways, on to the title.  So, I went and worked out tonight (actually I just got home before I started posting this), and as I was driving home at night, it felt like I was missing something.  Of course, the reason I’m sharing this with all of you is because I’m not quite sure what it is.  It just feels like there’s something missing.  I go to work, come home and either go climbing, go workout, or sit on the couch.  I then go to bed, and then rinse and repeat.  I’ve been trying to find hobbies to get into (e.g. marine fish aquariums), but who knows if that will fix my void.  Maybe if I could go outside and do stuff.  However, being isolated in the middle of a corn field can allow you to do only so much.  Or maybe it’s the lack of a group of friends that I can call up and go do stuff with.

Works been decent, but I’d hardly call it fufilling.  I’m pretty much just doing the same stuff over and over.  I really need to take my MCP test, but I’m not a fan of tests.  For the most part I’m ready for it, I just need to get motivated, put 2-3 days of review in, and go take it.  I wish there was some way in which people (read, employers) could see that I know the material without having to take a stupid test.  I mean, so many people that just user braindumps take the tests anyways that the waters are so diluted.  I really want to get on the ball with the getting my MCSE over and done with.  It’s not that I don’t find the material interesting, it’s just that reading about it is the worst.  Now, when I was having DNS problems on my home network, it was great to go to a book, read about it and then implement the fix (or try to at least).  However, just reading the book to read and take a test defeats the whole purpose.  It just plain sucks.  I just need to keep telling myself, once I get my MCSE, I’ll go back and get my master’s.  I don’t know what yet, but it will definitely be something technology related, because LAS is a joke (no offense LAS people, but it is to me).

Maybe that will cure my hunger, but I doubt it. 

Sunday I’m going to meet the guy that I won the speakers off ebay, somewhere in the middle of IL at a walmart.  Should be a good time.  I need to measure Colleen’s car to ensure that they’ll fit, otherwise, I’m going to have to take my truck, and I really don’t want to do that, since they may bang around in the back.  I can’t wait to get them and try em out.

Man, the apt reeks of bacon.  I must remember to do the bacon in the oven instead of on the stove.  Our stupid hood over the stove vents back out into the room, instead of outside (who thought of that, I don’t know…).  Needless to say, it was a nice smog fest.  And I wonder why we don’t have batteries in the fire alarm.  Oh yeah, if we cook anything on the stove it goes off…
