Has it really been three days since my last post? Holidays have a fun way of making the passage of time go painfully slow during awkward and difficult family gatherings but fly by through a supposedly-long weekend. It does not feel like I had four days off. It feels like I got my ass kicked and I barely hobbled home. Two days were smoked by family gatherings. One day was gone to writing a persuasive essay, and the other was gone doing outside work and standing in an AT&T store for three hours, most of which was on hold with AT&T customer service to fix an issue with their system. I cannot complain too much about the three hour wait if my cell bill will be $60 a month less than my Verizon Wireless and still get new phones and more data.
