I'm Fairly Certain That Carrie Fisher Called Me an Asshole Today.



Howdy Friends,

And she drives like a complete psycho.

Big Day.



Howdy Friends,

I've been trying to play guitar more.  It's time to stop sucking.

Also, on to the blog title.  Today marks the 365th day of my not smoking.  I was originally going to say smoke-free life but I can't honestly say I'm mentally free of it.  So not smoking works.

And, I got into grad school.  Master's of education here I come.  Start saving your money for private school people because if you send your kids to public school, I will teach them.  They will fear me.  Their fear will turn to love.  Their love will turn into fear again.

It's a good thing I won't be teaching English.

Love,
Matt

News May Be on the Way...



Howdy Friends,

The blog seems to be turning into something that I fit in the day.  What a sad realization.  I will try to make time for a real picture this weekend.  Hopefully.

Love,
Matt

Man or Astro-Man?



Howdy Friends,

I have a good excuse for cat-photo-ness tonight.  I'm going to a show and chances are when I get back tonight my brain will have exploded. 

So it's really now or never.

Matt

I Take Lots of Photos of Stairs Too.



Howdy Friends,

Today was president's day which means that it was completely pointless for me to go to work.  I guess I'm glad I got paid to do next to nothing.

On a better note, Shannon picked me up from work and we decided to head to the rose gardens to get some fresh air.  She also brought my camera with her :)

Love,
Matt

Seriously, I'm Really Sorry About Another Cat Photo.



Howdy Friends,

It's gotta stop right meow.

Once the year of the photo blog is finished, nights like this won't be an issue.

It May Be Cold But At Least It's Sunny.



Howdy Friends

It feels good to take a photo outdoors and in the sun again.

There is No School That Sports These Scarf Colors.

But according to Shannon she would be in Ravenclaw.

I Passed My Test!



Howdy Friends,

I spent 4 hours sitting in front of a computer nervously figuring out math problems and I still managed to get a post up.

I truly am a creature of habit.  If only I used my powers for good...

Food 4 Less



Howdy Friends,

So much is on my plate (hahahahah) right now.  I feel full (hahaha) of anxiousness.  I hope things simmer (hahahaha) down soon.

I Really Should Start Studying.



Howdy Friends,

Time to buckle down and open up a math book.  It's a big day on Monday.

The Lonesome City.



Howdy Friends,

Thanks to everyone who showed up to my show tonight!! The show was officially titled "The Lonely City" by Vinnie but I decided to take both creative and cowboy liberties with the title.

Thanks again for making a moderately stressful evening enjoyable.

Love,
Matt

My Life For the Next Week



Howdy Friends,

Since I didn't get the head coffee roaster position at work I've decided to take a more serious look into grad school.  This means that I definitely have to take a fancy math test.  So, I get to enjoy these fine books until I take said test on Monday. AHHHHHH.

Love,
Matt

This Feels Like Cheating.



Howdy Friends,

Here is a picture of some of the pictures I took that are going up for the show.  Did I mention that I'm having a show?  My photos will be up for a month at the local coffee shop where I work.

If I have a Portland reader out there who would like to attend, send me an email and I'll give you the details.

Love,
Matt

P.S. I feel that I should specify the framing issue: the black mats were ordered by accident.  I think that they work and look good and all that, I just didn't intend to purchase them.

P.P.S.  I'm very self conscious about my mats.

I Have One Post For Each Warrior in that One Movie "300"



Howdy Friends,

I know that I just did a bird but I don't care.  This is Portland right?  Bird = Art.  Done.

Every Once in a While...



Howdy Friends,

I took these photos on my way to/from the auto part store. 

$4.38

That's all it took to turn my new motorcycle into a crazily amazing deal.  I bought 2 spark plugs.  Now it runs beautifully.  My mind is a little blown actually.  I had a rough week and this was a welcome change from the way things have been going. 

Love,
Matt
