So fatigued. I've generally only found time to respond to non-client emails early in the morning (2am/3am) - I've already gotten a few remarks about the timing of those emails. (Trying to find a good lawyer, christ it's hard)

I guess I've gotten used to this lifestyle, where it doesn't out of the ordinary to write emails that late. But I should start scheduling them to be sent out at 8am Pacific so it doesn't look so weird. 

My left wrist has been hurting - I tried to take yesterday off (to absolutely no success). It's amazing how much I do with the left hand, and how difficult it is to do simple things when your wrist is tweaked. It doesn't help that I worked out on it, either. OOPS!

Yesterday - my most notable achievement: I slept for 8 hours. I can't remember the last time I slept for more than 4 hours comfortably. It was heavenly. 

I have been taking lots of trips lately - thus fulfilling my goal that if I were to ever leave the 9-5, I'd take advantage of the independence. Vegas for LDW, Korea, and Hawaii were all great. I have Tahoe in November, then Vegas for New Years. I'm trying to figure out my next traveling trip - I'm leaning towards Cuba or Spain at the moment... but I also want to spend a little more time in Korea next year, as well. We'll see. 

The business has been good. Getting into a good rhythm of development with my main client. We've ironed out the internal development processes, so code and features have been cranking out a relatively steady pace, which is great. I feel good with the team I have now, which means I can start tackling some of the issues I've purposely ignored - primarily on the legal/accounting front.

I was by the Point Loma lighthouse, when this immense fog suddenly came over the road. I stopped by the side of the road to try to see the ocean - you could barely make it out through the haze; you could still hear the crashing of the waves below. 

These two motorcyclists also stopped to observe the fleeing mystery of the fog (it lifted up only a little while later).

I saw this Christopher Ward online last week and thought it looked fantastic:

That is, until I saw the Baume & Mercier Classima 8869:

I love the heart design. It's absolutely stunning. I'm currently the proud owner of one of the Classimas already:

And in my little reptile brain, I'm thinking... "I should sell my existing Classima and use it to upgrade to the open heart Classima!"

That hook in the beginning is killer. 

"Money can’t buy you love cause it’s over priced

Update: I haven't really taken the time to the lyrics... but according to iTunes I've listened to this track 24 times. And the more I listen to it, the more depressed I feel - this song feels like a reflection on my life right now.
