First of September already!  Time for me to recharge and aim high once more on my writing goals.  Ganbatte!

Doing some e-cleaning this morning during the slow moments of my Day Job...lots of email subfolders (both personal and work) that needed sorting out, deletion, or archiving.  Keeping a positive spin on it all, hitting all the daily goals as I can and minimizing the distraction.  Doing it Now instead of When I Get Around To It.  The forward motion is definitely an excellent motivator.

Listening to the new tunage that's out today but being a bit more choosy about what I download now.  (Sure, I say that now...)  A suggested we start budgeting ourselves a bit more, and I agree.  I've always held back a bit with my weekly music purchases...during the days when I'd do my weekly run to Newbury Comics, I'd make sure I didn't spend more than $70.  (More often I'd spend more like $40.)  Now that my purchases are all digital, my weekly cap hovers around $50 but is usually more like $35.  Still, I do find that I'll download albums I like the sound of, maybe listen to it for a few weeks, and then not touch it for quite some time.  Not that it's necessarily wasteful, as I'm putting money in musicians' pockets, but I have to remember that unlike my cd buying days, I can't bring mp3s to a record store for cash or credit if I no longer want them.  And besides, I'm signed up for Amazon Prime, so I have unlimited streaming going on.  If I'm on the fence on certain albums, perhaps I'll listen to them a bit more and make a choice sometime down the line.

ANYHOO.  In other news, San Francisco is getting hit with a heatwave and none of us here, especially on the normally cool and foggy side of town, are used to it.  It's ridiculously warm right now, and I may just break out my shorts for the first time in however long it's been.  It's not often that it hits close to 80F here in the Richmond. 

SO!
