Let me tell you. The greatness of my honor. My pride. My elation. How I was truly humbled…

I, yes I, am officially a winner of a very important event. It’s a marvelous thing. It doesn’t light up in the window but it still matters to me. It’s not a trophy that I can flaunt but it is a great achievement. I am so gracious.

I don’t know who I want to thank. I mean I want to thank everyone. I want to thank anyone. But I just can’t describe how much it all means to me.

I mean I guess I’d like to thank my mother first and foremost for her bold inspiration. I want to thank the masses for drawing it out of me. The sheer will to absolutely nail my execution.

Um…

I won an ugly sweater contest at the bar because it was sleeting and no one showed up. Besides the band and the bartenders I was the only one who got the memo apparently. It wasn’t even a sweater I just wrapped decorat

ions around myself while wearing a sweater. Itís a nice sweater actually. Fitting. The band was enjoyable though. I had fun. The Patriots lost.

I guess I get a gift card or something.

Yay. Woohoo. Hurrah.

Iím so happy. Canít you tell how much Iím laughing and smiling.

Nope. Not a chump.

I just went to a bar on a night that other people werenít aware of a contest and participated in a contest.

Thatís all I did.

My mom bought me a Christmas tree too. Just plastic. Had to use scotch tape to get it to all light up. Electrocuted my self slightly in the process.

I thanked my mom because she gave me the ornamental fake Christmas tree thing that I wrapped around myself. I would have just worn a plain sweater if she didnít give me the finishing touch.

So tired though.

Staying up for the Knicks game so I donít repeat the early to bed middle of the night to rise situation I found myself in this morning.

Hopefully my scotch tape doesnít burn the building down.

Iím freaked out at work sometimes still. Sorry just continuing. But my freak outs are understood and managed I feel like. My freak outs are like an alarm. And then I reset the alarm by adjusting the result until acceptable.

But just one more day of triggering myself at work for a negotiated payment.

Probably just an easy day tomorrow. I got all my Christmas shopping done. Got something for my older brother. Got something for my niece. Going to give my nephew money I guess.

I wanted to buy them both pogo sticks but my older brother said too dangerous.

I got something for my mom and my dad. Went in on a gift for my dad. I should probably pick up a gift card for my aunt and grandmother. Thatís what my mom suggested.

But better day at work today. Productive. Even got to use some statistics and do a little programming. Interesting editing task. Makes the time go by better.

Made a game for myself.

If I want another beer or if I want another cigarette I have to go to the Open Mic at the bar to have it.

Going to try and hold off till eight and then make a decision.

Very tired today after I think I lost the game that I made for myself. It was good though. I guess. I feel like it was probably the biggest holiday crowd theyíll get this season.

Read that after work. Appreciate the perspective antecedent to the work smarter not harder idea of less routine and labor and more imaginative thought experiments. I think I can see the values in my routine. At work and in life. I practice it more at work but still have habits and routine. Probably not healthy habits or routine but habits and routine nonetheless.

Knicks are on in a half an hour. Might just go to bed after that.

Busy weekend. Prime Rib at my parentsí on Friday. Christmas with my family, my momís family, and my dadís family. Three separate locations. Ended with karaoke in a basement and a bottle of Jameson.

The Bills and the Knicks won. Trying to have a quieter night before heading back to work in the morning.

Was almost too busy.

I guess Iím going to a Knicks game next week. Taking two days off. In the middle of the week but thatís what the tickets are.

My older brother was supposed to be meeting people visiting in NY but they cancelled due to the pandemic stuff. So my mom and my little brother and I lucked out.

Keeping the holiday spirit alive into the new year I guess.

My tree has Christmas cards on it now. My wreath that I wore is on a banister with Mets ornaments.

Worked about a ten hour day today. Just a series of tasks. Nothing too rushed or busy. Second shift guy didnít show up. Called in but they have a system where not showing up just costs you a demerit. You get ten demerits and then youíre gone. Heís probably just messing with that. I hope at least. It would suck if he flaked and I was doing two shifts worth of work again.

Should be interesting how it all plays out regardless.

Go Knicks

Huge more news thoughÖ

I got a phone at work. So I have a phone now. And I think thatís good. I hope I use it. I think I will.

ButÖ

I have another three day weekend now. And I really have not adjusted to having time after work again. I was in bed at seven twice this week. Woke up at like one and shut off my music and my television. Both nights.

I think Iím kind of clinging to work though. I think Iím basically ďall inĒ as they would say.

Itís okay. I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel still. Weíre getting there.

Baby steps. I think ramping up is possible still. I think itís okay. Hopefully I donít get a ton of customer complaints on my new phone.

I asked a general advice question about permissions. I think no one here is guilty.

Iím going to live in my apartment for the first time in months this weekend. Celebrate the new year by celebrating that I have a comfortable apartment with a reasonable rent and take advantage of the fact that I can walk to a bar to celebrate the new year.

Read a mouthful out of my Bible this morning. Even made myself some eggs and toast too.

Every chapter really jumped out at me. It was really dark actually. An exclamation of misery out of Ecclesiastes. Christ crucified in Luke.

The passage out of Hebrews helped me understand my faith personally when I first read the New Testament. Itís exemplifying Christ as the high priest conducting the ultimate offering. And it was a willing offering.

I think thatís what got to me. A knowing laying down of a spiritual burden that was at one time something I had to carry myself. An allowance of the divine. An offer to be grafted in.

But Iím going to see if I canít make someone laugh while a band plays at the bar.

Not like I need an excuse. Iím doing this almost every weekend now.

I think Iím still reaching people. Still making honest connections. Just need to slow down a bit. Or maybe Iíll find someone somewhere in my boisterousness. Probably not though. Maybe though??
