Could have been more productive, Damn video games

I guess we all have those days every now and then, but seriously i could understand a day like this after a long night of drinking and sleeping in till 1 PM.  Hell i even have a couple good books in my room that i'm partway through that i could continue reading.  One book is called Anarchy Evolution the author of this book is the lead  singer from the band Bad Religion.  Basically talks about how there is no god and he uses examples from lots of scientific research that he has done over the years based on evolution.  As for the other book, just Guitar for Dummies.  Don't know which way i'm going with the guitar, but maybe a little theory on it every now and then doesn't hurt :-)

Ever since i downloaded this sega and Nintendo emulator off the internet and reconnected myself with some of these games i was heavily addicted to as a kid, seems like my focus on playing guitar has been steadily decreasing.  Especially in this kind of situation i'm in now, if I'm unemployed i shouldn't be wasting so much time playing video games but educating myself with books or videos off the internet.  Every one of my friends has told me in the past that i know a good amount about computers and should have taken programming in college rather than heavy duty mechanics.  Well i'm starting to realize it a little more every day.  There are odd days i have gone on you tube and watched instructional videos on how to assemble a computer tower.  Seems pretty easy with basic components, but when they break the components down into which is better i'm completely lost.  Better keep reading i guess.

well the day is almost over, i still got a chance to say i at least did a little something productive.  Maybe i'll dig out that Anarchy Evolution book and read it some more.  Currently at the part where he is talking about natural selection.  He talked about how farmers with cattle use natural selection to Breed their animals so they have good quality livestock for years to come.  I had never thought of it that way, i wonder what else that book has to teach me.

  8. Heavy Duty Mechanics are needed. See if there are any Transport companies or whatever, or better yet, see if you can sign up for *yes* truckers school and that way you can at least keep your own rig up and going as an owner/operator, keeping your overhead down and maximising your profit
