Live & Learn & Then Keep Living

To continue what I imagine may be a theme of semi-nostalgic posts during my last few weeks of the year I'm going to try to process and verbalize what I have learned this year.
I kind of wanted to find a quote that would relate to my view point on it.
There were a bunch that stuck out, but I can't really put my finger on one, so I'm just going include them all.
"No regrets just, lessons learned..."
"Life is full of lessons, sadly ive learned a lot the hard way."
"From lessons learned comes better life."
There were more, but really that would be over kill so I'm just going to move on into the main point of my post.

Revision and revenge?

So apparently yesterday was St. Patricks day. I knew it was coming soon but had no idea when, then I saw bunches of people wearing green. I had to work pretty much all the day long so didn't enjoy it...not that I would have anyway but yeah.
While I was at work I was reflecting on the way that major holidays - days of reflection, have been made ridiculous. Christmas is more about a jolly fat man then about the birth of the Lord. Easter is more about bunnies then a suffering Savior. St. Patrick's day is another excuse for people to get drunk and live in sin instead of about a man of God who devoted his life to seeing Ireland changed.
There are more examples but it makes me wonder what will come of all of it. I'll give my theories after the break.

The turning of the page

It's March 13 and it definitely feeling like this is a changing period for me.
At this moment is 50 degrees and the forecast says high 60's today and mid 70's tomorrow. That's just the natural example.
I have 6 weeks and 3 days left til summer. Nearness of the change of pace combined with the beautiful weather creates spring fever within me.
At least I have March Madness starting in a couple days. My schedule is pretty full but as much as I can I'm gonna be enjoying the competition.
Is there anything else, well I got a promotion at my job. It's nothing too major but it's a pay increase and gets me off the cash registers. I'm slightly freaked out about working with customers all the time though. At least I know a fair amount about Electronics already so that will help.
I am wondering what will come on the next page of my life. I can estimate some things but much is out of sight right now.

The clock stops for no man

Well it's been another month since I last posted. It definitely doesn't feel like it's been that long but I've been busy so time goes quickly. It's been more of the same; working, studying and getting internship stuff organized. I just came off mid-semester break so I'm well fed and well rested right now.
Work has been plodding along. I cut my hours back for the last couple weeks so that I could get everything else done with school and still have time to sleep. I'm going to start ramping it back up and am looking toward Summer to really start bringing in the cash.
