had my first good night's sleep last night

okay, for those who don't know: drunks sleep better than anyone in the world. fact. i didn't always get a lot of sleep, but when i was down, i was down and out, removed from the world. hangovers hardly ever happened too, so drunken nights meant good days the following day; drink, sleep, repeat. it's amazing. i'm not trying to sell being a drunk or anything, just pointing out one of the few, but awesome perks. so, i have been having all sorts of trouble sleeping since i gave up drinking. mostly waking up a lot, or just not feeling rested the next day. last night was different. i only slept eight hours, but i didn't wake up once and i felt really good today. it was such a deep sleep, i had problems waking up actually.

i hope this doesn't mean i'll have hangovers when i drink again.

so much for being non-autobiographical. i'm thinking of something, i swear.

the girl is about to come over. weeee

man, this thing reads like a teenage girl's diary, minus the drinking stuff.

one week down

still on the wagon here. amazing. i set a goal of sobering up until august twentieth. that's knott's berry jerry and there is no way i'm not drinking there. so, it's a pretty good goal. i'm situating just fine into my new life.

so, what else? work. work. work. i'm trying to get promoted to regional training manager. i'm pretty qualified and it requires some travel. everyone else that's qualified isn't interested in the second necessity. my buddy recommended me for the job, so i've got an in. but i don't think my own boss is pushing for me to get the job like he says he is. damn politics. i really need it, so bored with my current position.

so, i've been writing a ton about me. i want to try and write some stuff that is not so autobiographical soon. let's see if i remember how. coming soon...

waking up on day four...

i had some weird sweaty stuff going on, that ended today. still had problems sleeping. other than that, nothing feels really different. i'm finding myself seriously bored though. thus, with the blogging.

actually, right now, i'm going to look at homes on the web, to keep myself inspired.

today, part one

google is retarded. every time i try an comment on a blog, it boots me out, takes me to login screen, i login, goes back to comment page with a capture, i do capture and it boots me out again. i can't even comment on my own blog? wth? part two to come...

day one...

today was the first day of my new life. i gave up drinking as a way of living. this is the hardest thing ever. and i'm not doing it for any really noble reason. i want to save money for a house, and this is going to help me save a ton of money. so, if anyone wants to buy me a round, it'll be much appreciated. the girl is happy with the decision. she thinks i'll lose weight and be more healthy. so, this decision has perks, i guess.

i'm wondering how this will work out. i started feeling really weird tonight, very off. i usually drink most nights, but on the rare night i didn't, i never felt like this. is there such a thing as alcohol withdrawals? how bad is it? i guess i'm going to find out soon.

wish me luck!

checking in...

i don't know with who, but i am. i am terrible at writing this past year, even moreso than before. i just don't have any spare time. i guess that's a good thing. my life is full. even better, it's not full of crap. my family is great. my girl is great, ten months now. two of my friends are laid off, but they seem kind of happy with it. we're getting the band back together, if nothing but just to make music again. work is as good as it can be. i'm actually happy i have a good paying job and that it's pretty secure. my restaurant is performing pretty well too. so, long hours and little sleep are kind of a decent trade off. there are plans for fun too. vegas in july and october. santa barbara for our one year anniversary in may. plenty of bbq plans for april and beyond with the boys. lot's of fun birthdays to rock. in these day and times, i think i've got it pretty good, so i'm just going to be happy with that. i wish i had time to read other people's blogs. but crap, i don't even have time for moc these days.
