One more day and the month of March will be concluded. When that's done, the month of April 2009 will make it's debut. It's my hope that the month of April 2009 will be positive and hope inspiring. I try to be a good person. I try to conduct myself in the most appropriate manner. I try to respect the feelings of other people. Although I do fall short of my goals every so often, I do atone for my mistakes. It's my hope that the year 2009 will be a chance for second chances, new beginings and fresh clean slates.

Warm weather continues in Columbus, Ohio. It's too nice of a day to be inside the apartment all day. I do all of my internet surfing in the public library since I can't afford the internet for my personal computer. My combined work hours at both Burger King Restaurant and Wendy's Restaurant has been dropping more and more each week. Wendy's Restaurant in particular isn't very stable. Employment at both Burger King Restaurant and Wendy's Restaurant has been about coping with a mediocre situation in hope that it will improve.

It's raining outside. Actually, it's more like a light sprinkling of rain. The weather is rather cool outside. It's not cold, but it's not warm either. It's perfect weather for a light jacket. I have roughly thirty-seven minutes left before I have to peddle my bike home to cook dinner. I'm in the Upper Arlington Public Library on Lane Road. I felt the urge to surf the internet. Surfing the internet is a great way to relax myself.

I wish there were cheap affordable indoor swimming pools available in the Upper Arlington suburb of Columbus, Ohio. It's still too cold outside to use the Lexington Park Apartment indoor swimming pools.

The sound doesn't work in this computer terminal in the Upper Arlington Public Library on Lane Road. Mechanical failure is one of the risks that you must endure in the public library. However, I can't afford to establish an internet connection with my own computer. So I use the public library computer's internet connection because it's free. It's not the best arrangement, but it's better than nothing.

I really enjoy eating french bread pizzas. Add boiled pasta, boiled corn and buttered dinner rolls. I always wanted to know how to make garlic bread, but I'm not sure what the recipe is just yet.

I'm in the Upper Arlington Public Library on Lane Road. It's so warm outside, that I don't need a coat at all. It's so nice to have such pleasent weather return. I'm not sure how long the good weather will last. I'm certainly enjoying every second of it.
I got off work at Burger King Restaurant from 6:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M.. The Upper Arlington Public Library either closes at 5:00 P.M. or 6:00 P.M.. I'm not sure how much time I got left. However, I had some free time at my disposal. So I'm surfing the internet for a little bit.

I worked at Burger King Restaurant from 5:30 A.M. to 10:30 A.M.. I have a few hours to kill before I have to clock in to work at Wendy's Restaurant. I don't have time to surf the internet, but internet surfing is starting to become addicting. It helps me to take my mind off my troubles. Right now, being able to pay the water bill and the rent is on the top of my list of priorities.
Is the Star Wars series better if it's only composed of part four, part five and part six. Is the Star Wars series better because part one, part two or part three were finally at long last completed. Some people insisted that The Phantom Menace, The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith were shameless attempts to cash in on the popularity of the vastly better A New Begining, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. However, the tragedy of Darth Vader's serial killing mass murder of Jedi warriors and innocent planets are made even more tragic. The Phantom Menace and The Clone Wars gave you got to see what the Jedi warriors and the political structure was like before it was forever ruined by Darth Vader. By allowing us to see the victims of Darth Vader's unprovoked rage as innocent blameless people rather than faceless clay pigeons, there is a deeper emotional connection to the viewer. I'm not trying to ruin anybody's life by voiceing these opinions. I simply believe that The Phantom Menace, The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith have been successful in preventing undeserved hero worship of Darth Vader.

Good grief, it's already Friday. The week have flown past much too quickly. It's hard to believe that the month is almost nearly concluded. Spring has finally arrived. There are no leaves on the trees yet, but it's only a matter of time. It's sad to see the snowstorms go, but the crisp spring breeze makes life much better.
Yes, I know for a fact that winter is finally concluded. It's still cold outside, but I'm not wearing a winter coat anymore. I'm not going to leave the window to my apartment wide open just yet, but it's certainly close to it. I got my paychecks for both Burger King Restaurant and Wendy's Restaurant. I cashed the paychecks and I'm going to use 90% of the cash to pay the rent. I have a rigid financial budget to follow. It's not easy, but I manage to succeed half of the time.

Let's check the calander. Yikes, the month of March is almost concluded. One more week before March 2009 is a distant memory. It's amazing how quickly time flies. You wake up one morning and you insist that you have all the time in the world. By the time you're cooking lunch, fifty years have gone by and you start to wonder where all the time have vanished too. You start to wonder if all the time you have spent have been used wisely. I ask myself that question every single day. I don't want to waste my entire life aimlessly drifting. More important, I want to graduate college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. I still believe that I could make a positive difference in my life if I have the right college degree.
I got my paycheck from Wendy's Restaurant. As a result, I'm one step closer to getting the rent paid. I'm going to collect another paycheck from Burger King Restaurant tomorow. Payday is always a lot of fun. Yeah, I don't earn much money. However, I still enjoy payday regardless. Actually having money in my wallet fills me with hope and optimism for the future.

It's my hope that my contributions to society will be positive. I try really hard to be a nice person and treat everybody with equality and decency. It's my hope that the legacy that I leave behind will be both hopeful and positive. I understand that only GOD himself is perfect. We try to live up to GOD's expectations with a wide variety of results. With the grace of GOD himself, we try to improve ourselves. Yet, it's not always easy to see when we fall short of expectations. Yet, we always strive to improve ourselves. The ability to learn from our mistakes is one of the most enduring legacy of the human race.
There are days when I wish I could afford to own and operate a car. Don't get me wrong, bike riding is fantastic exercise. However, there are days when I wish there was an automobile available on days when I really need it.

For breakfast, I enjoyed oatmeal, sliced apples, toast, milk, lemonaid and coffee. I enjoy cooking my meals. Not only is it vastly cheaper, but it's very relaxing. I always feel calm after cooking and eating a well prepared meal.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting that I also need to clean the laundry. The coin operated washing machine is $1.25. The coin operated drying machine is $1.25. I have to walk across the parking lot to a tiny room on the first floor of another block of apartments. There are four washing machines and four drying machines. I have enough laundry detergent for the laundry machine washes.
THINGS TO DO IN COLUMBUS, OHIO WHEN YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT WHERE YOUR NEXT PAYCHECK IS GOING TO COME FROM
Despite the severe reduction of work hours at both Burger King Restaurant and Wendy's Restaurant, I manage to survive. This coming week, I get to work eighteen work hours at Wendy's. However, the next week has my Wendy's Restaurant work hours reduced back to only four and a half. I'm not sure why I can't get eighteen work hours at Wendy's Restaurant more frequently. I know it's not much, but it's better than nothing.
It's getting late at night. I didn't eat dinner yet. I intended to clean the bathroom and wash the dishes. I didn't to either of those yet. I should get more focused on household cleaning chores with more committed zeal. Aside from that, it was a calm relaxing day.

It's not too cold outside. However, it's not warm either. I was expecting the warm weather to last a bit longer. However, such luck wasn't on my side. On the positive side, I was able to cash my Burger King paycheck. Yeah, it isn't much money. However, it's better than nothing.

And so spring finally arrived. It took a while for the pleasent spring weather to finally arrive. However, the fact that it took so long for the pleasent weather to arrive helps us to appreciate it more. Today was pleasent because I was able to walk around without a coat on. It certainly gives me hope for a brighter tomorow when we can enjoy a warm spring day.

The weather gets warmer by slowly and gradually with each progressive day. The weather is still cold, but it doesn't feel much like winter anymore. It's easier for me to travel around Upper Arlington by bicycle. Surfing the internet in the Upper Arlington Public Library on Lane Road does have it's advantages. The biggest advantage is that the library is next to the Lane Road Public Park. Hanging out in the public park is great---Even in the warmest days of winter.

I get my Burger King Restaurant paycheck this Friday. Right now, I only have seven cents left in my wallet. I certainly need my paycheck. However, most of the cash from my paycheck will be used to pay the telephone bill. Paying the bills is never fun, but it's a necessary part of life.
Monday, March 2, 2009
I got the day off at both Burger King Restaurant and Wendy's Restaurant. I'm currently surfing the internet at the Upper Arlington Public Library on Lane Road. I'm planning to cook dinner later tonight. I need to clean the apartment also. The stove is long overdue for cleaning. Mostly, it's the stove top burners that needs to be cleaned. Cleaning the stove is always a fun activity to undertake.
