Today’s been shaping up pretty well.  I actually woke up at a decent time.  The last few days, I’ve been enjoying sleeping until noon, but today I was up and about at nine.  Not at night either, nine this morning!

I’ve been getting tons done with this new laptop.  I’ve spent most of the week moving files from other computers to this new one.  At this point, I have most of my personal files all in one place.  Believe it or not, that’s a truly gratifying experience.  And now, I can have an extra copy of all these files on me at all times, thanks to the USB JumpDrive I received for my birthday.

However, there was one thing that made the day great.  I finally received my ACT scores.  I’m not going to say what I got, but I will say that I solidly qualify for all the scholarships that require at least a 30.</p>

And that’s not all: earlier this afternoon I got my car washed.  I paid for a regular automatic wash--no wax, no dryer--but I received both of these free.  I asked the manger if he wanted me to pay extra, but he said it wasn’t necessary after thanking me.

Let’s hope things go as well next year!  Happy New Year everybody!
