Randoms Act of Shifeness on Labor Day Weekend 2015

--> It cooled down quite a bit here in Idaho. As we went from the upper 80s to low 60s in a day. Some people might say that's bonkers. I wasn't some people and just said it was horse shit. The kids just decided it's time to get ready for winter.

My two little gnomes breaking out their winter hats. 

--> I had a pretty cool view from the office today. 


--> I have felt pretty good running lately so I decided to push myself during a 3-mile run and surprised myself with my time. The fastest mile I ever ran was a 5 minute mile in high school during a cross country meet so not too shabby for a dumb, white guy. I took it easy on that third mile. 


--> The only way I was able to afford college was because of financial aid. I'm grateful for that money because it opened up a lot of doors for me. I wrapped up college in 1999, and I'm happy to report that last month I finally paid off the last of my loans. 


--> Have a great Labor Day weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Talk to you later.





I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

It's raining here now and might reach 58! But back up to 80 next week. Financial aid is great, congrats on the payoff.

I'm glad to hear a positive story about someone benefiting from student aid. You're a fine example of how it's supposed to work.

Our weather isn't too bad at the moment although I can definitely feel winter coming on. Sad... we've hardly had any summer!

Student loans really do take a long time to clear. I pity all the young folk just starting out and having to face such a huge responsibility. Glad yours is over and done with.

just looking at that 3-mile time made me tired.
