i feel that i have sort of neglected my poor blog as of late.  its been almost a whole month and i havent even written a quick hello to the world wide web who hangs on my every keystroke....blah blah blah.  to be perfectly honest, ive been busier then a $5 whore on payday and havent had time to do jack shit other then eat and sleep and sometimes those didnt exactly fit into my schedule either.  i decided to try my hand at a third job for awhile...just cleaning a restaurant after closing time for a few hours on a few nights a week.  well i made it two weeks into this little experiment before my body just rejected the whole idea by having the nerve of becoming physically and mentally exhausted....fucking light weight.  money is all well and good but ive decided that i need more then 4-5 hours of sleep a day after having worked 18-20 hours.  the math just didnt add up in the favor of mental stability.  all work and no play make neal a manic depressive to paraphrase a favorite movie of mine. im quickly closing in on the halfway mark which is amazing since it seems like i just left my friends toby and dave sitting at a sidewalk bar in bangkok as i boarded the shuttle the airport.  the summer is going by pretty smooth without too many sideshows and distractions after i cut cb out of my life (crazy bitch). im not going to go into her whole situation other then to say she's flying back to chicago in 17 days and i couldnt be happier for her. 

now that ive been out here for years on and off i know quite a few people who have quite a few connections and i have been offered some really lucrative jobs that would actually put me on the road of having a normal life with houses and cars and things of that sort.  i suppose that im not COMPLETELY against these things but the only downside is that these jobs require me to stay in alaska year round and stop my wandering ways.  maybe one day i will take my friends up on the offers but at the moment, money isnt that important to me.  dont get me wrong, the more money i have, the more fun i can have while traveling but if i have to choose between the two, traveling is going to win hands down.

on the cool news front, my sister is coming out to homer for a few weeks for a mini vacation.  she's not really coming here to hang out with me so to speak since i work like a hebrew slave but i set her up with a friends spare cabin and another friends spare vehicle so it became very affordable for her to come on out and relax.  i havent seen her since she left thailand a couple of years ago so it will be nice to catch up during the few hours we have to get together. 

as you can tell, there isnt too much exciting going on in life at the moment....just working and sleeping.  i have to admit that at the moment, i cannot wait to pass the hell out.  the last 2 days have been 18 hour days and im so tired its not even funny.  im writing this post while laying in bed under the covers so to say that im drowsy and a bit incoherent would be an understatement.  so before i go to sleep i would like to just say that the photos that are in this post were taken by yours truly right outside of my work one night.  its about 11pm in the pictures so check out how much sunlight there is lol.  fucking alaska drives me crazy sometimes.
