Today marks 3 special occaisions.
It’s my brother’s 22nd birthday, so I’m heading out to my parent’s house to cellebrate over dinner. I doubt he reads this, but if he does, Happy Birthday Bro… (Shit I need to pick up a gift!)
My High School radio station turned 35 today! The teacher who kept it alive has been there 17 years and he is a great teacher, mentor and friend. It’s great to see how his students young and old show him respect, and how he returns that respect back to them. It was great seeing both old and new faces there and I got a kick out of seeing yet another High School radio program being put on live. Working for a commercial radio station part time, it’s not odd for me to be in the studios during a broadcast, but watching students in the same seats that I began in was a real treat. And okay, it’s not the SAME seats! A few years after I left they moved the station upstairs and re-built the studios and I have to say they look great! Very 90210-esq as the studio window faces the main hallway of the school.
Finally, It’s the anniversary of my living in my own place. I may be a day off, I can’t remember if it was Feb 8th, 9th or 10th, but one year ago, I spent my first (and every following) night in my home in North Babylon. It’s kind of crazy to think that I’ve settled in and even now, I’m still thinking about things I can do to better off the place. I have done so much from Painting, Furnishing and Decorating, and have more ideas that I would like to put together at some point. Still on the to-do list is a Media Center PC or Networked Media Player in the livingroom, Webcam(s), Somewhere to hang my pictures/autographs (Not too keen on where they are now), and I still want to re-do the Kitchen and Bathroom flooring, but those will all have to wait. I have plenty of time. and best of all, there’s only 19 years left on my mortgage! lol.. Ummm.. 19.. years.. ugh.. lol
