End of summer

     Once again it has been to long since an update.  Here are just a few of my thoughts.

     Another summer is almost over.  Fall begins on September 22nd.  I'm getting excited for the upcoming football season, college and pro.  Yeah the Texans are terrible and the Steelers are rebuilding but still, I enjoy watching football.  I'm very excited for the upcoming college season for UH.  They are projected to compete for the AAC title along with Cincinnati and possibly UCF.  I renewed my season tickets again so I will be going to the games.

     I've had a few dates this summer but still nothing sticking yet.  I was hoping to be in a relationship by now but its not that easy.  Fall is my favorite season so I am really looking forward to it.  Hopefully I'll meet some new people.  

     One lesson that I have learned this summer is that you can't press too much on finding a relationship.  I've never really pressed that much before but now that I am in my 40s, I am pressing more.  The good thing is that I know what I am looking for in a relationship which makes it easier for me to sort out the people that don't have the same goals as me.  I want to start a family.  Most of my friends are married with kids and even though I don't show it, I am super jealous.  It's frustrating.  But I trust that God will show me the right path.  I just have to continue on, not getting too down, and being strong.  Dating is not easy to say the least.

     I can't believe that another summer is nearly over.  In many ways it feels like it has flown by.  I've been playing my guitar more lately which has been fun.  I feel like I am improving but at a slow pace.  I just need to stick at it.  I really really enjoy playing.  It's a great way to just clear my mind and just jam.

     I still am working on getting healthier.  My weight has gone back up again a little unfortunately, but I know what I need to do.  I just need to stop procrastinating and remain disciplined.

     I've really kind of tuned out of politics lately.  Its been very refreshing.  I realize how toxic the current political landscape is and how polarizing it is.  The overturning of Roe v Wade has only added fuel to that fire.  I was shocked that it happened, and I'm really not sure how I feel about it.  I am pro-life but I understand people who are pro-choice.  There are some persuasive arguments on that side also.  Overall I just stay out of it.

     God bless ya'll.  Hope everyone has had a great summer.
