In the hopes that I can shake this mood.

I fell into the deep end of a friend’s pool.
The friend and I were playing Frisbee across their pool because it took up all of their backyard. I can’t remember why, but I ended up at the deep end side.
I couldn’t swim yet.
Everything was all fine and dandy, until my friend threw the Frisbee short.
And I reached for it.
I don’t remember hitting the water. I just remember being unable to get above the water. I remember the panic I felt.
Then, out of nowhere, my dad was there.
He grabbed me and pulled me up. He took me to the side of the pool and helped me out. He made sure I was ok.
I don’t have a lot of great memories with my dad, but I do have some where I remember he was actually there for me when I needed him.
Happy Father’s Day Dad.

You may (or may not) know that I recently declared bankruptcy.
I didn’t have any other choice.
Plain and simple.
I take full responsibility for getting myself to that point. It was all me, and I own every bit of it. Even the parts that involved someone else (i.e. 27, a.k.a. Pig Fucker).
You may (or may not) have been wondering about my new “little toy” that arrived yesterday. Well, here’s the scoop…
I saved my change.
And not just the pennies. All. Of. It. 100%. Ok, maybe I saved 99.99999999999999…% of it, but you get the picture.
I started with $25 bucks I got as a birthday gift this year, and went from there, dumping all my change into a cup. Every so often, I would take my cup to a CoinStar machine, and redeem my coins for an Amazon eGiftCard code (which is TOTALLY the way to go because they don’t charge you a fee and you can find pretty much ANYTHING on there, even prostitutes. So I’ve been told.
A couple of weekends ago, I hit my $200 goal.
Two Hundred Dollars. IN. CHANGE.
I had plans to get the lower-end telephoto lens. You will never guess what happened when I went to buy it, though. The next step up lens…
had a $100 rebate on it.
I just couldn’t pass it up. I know you know what I mean.
So, I committed to buying the better lens. I had the money saved (from just saving my money, which I seem to be getting good at), so it wasn’t going to hurt anything, other than maybe my savings account for a little while.
But the story doesn’t end there. When I actually ordered my new lens…
I got 4% rewards back.
And free one-day shipping.
The Universe REALLY wanted me to have this lens.
What else could I do, but say “OH-KAY”?
