It is a pretty lazy day all around. I woke up with an attitude to let if all roll off my back this morning. Not that anything was wrong, but rather nothing would get to me. Today I have just been rolling with the tide of the day.
Back to last night….The Dallas Stars hockey club too the fourth game in the series against the St. Louis Blues. That I can be happy about. They beat them with a score of 3-2 in overtime. This after a very disappointing game three, losing 6-1. Sometimes it is hard to catch those games since I don’t live anywhere near the team. I can usually find a live stream online and then life is good. I, like many others, prefer to go to a game but that is almost impossible for me unfortunately. I have always felt like I would have been good at hockey, but I never had it offered to me. Sometimes I think about how my life may have been different if I had played hockey over, say football. I feel like I would have been better at hockey and that maybe more doors would be opened for my future. Through football I received many concussions, which lead to me not playing ball in college. Though you certainly can get injuries and concussions in hockey I doubt I would have had enough to stop me from playing the sport.

Where was I? Today I started into the Week 1 lecture and walk through of the CS50 course. It is introducing C programming language and breaking down the parts of different code and comparing it to the Scratch blocks introduced in Week 0. I feel pretty overwhelmed since I don’t have much of a background in programming and the fact that I am my own motivation. I may be the type of guy to quit rather than push myself to finish something if it really is optional. I tend to not want stress that I don’t need. That being said I am putting pressure on myself to finish this course to say that I did and learn what I can, so that I may later be able to use it to further my career.
My younger brother has a Co-Ed slow pitch softball game tonight at our local set of fields. it starts at 6:30. The only thing is that Friday is normally reserved for my wife and I to catch up on watching the shows we miss when shes away at school. We watch “The Flash”, “Arrow”, and “Archer”. They respectively come out every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, which just so happens to be the 3 days of the week my wife has/had night classes (side note: She just finished this semester and no longer has class those days). Either way I’m sure that I can bring the dog down to the fields and watch, all while getting our shows caught up as well.
Since my wife was brought up today I’ll let you know she will be finished with her Masters in August and we will be actively looking for a forever home. We would like to be moved as soon as possible, because we have been crashing at my parents house since my job had me relocate back to my home town. Rather than spend money on an apartment we didn’t care about I have been paying off student loans and saving for a down payment on a home. It is a struggle though sharing a kitchen and laundry room, but we are grateful for the opportunity to catch up a bit with our loans and try to get a head in any way possible.
I hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll catch up with you Monday with anything that happens over the weekend.
