It's been really healthy, having this weekend alone is helping me sort shit out up there. I shot some hoops this morning. It was good. I've never seen so many houses with hoops out the front - it's a wonder the NBA isn't full of white Jewish guys.
The other day i looked up this guy i knew back in 1997, he's working at an insurance company in Chicago now. He wanted to be a writer. I've got this opportunity right now while i'm not able to work legally, i can do anything i want as long as i'm not charging for it. I need to grab hold. I know in a year's time i'll probably be working in an office again, doing the "career" thing, but right now i don't have to. So i will keep writing.
