Cars

Yesterday Dala and I passed a late '90s Jaguar XK rolling on 20s. The car was in good shape, but the wheels looked awkward. I wonder if maybe 20s were too small and it would have looked better with stretched wheel wells and 22s.

My car's body and finish is so messed up from multiple hail storms and years of being baked in the sun, I've decided that a few bumper stickers won't hurt. I quickly decided that if a few bumper stickers won't hurt, completely covering the rear bumper with stickers until none of the paint can be seen is the way to go. I'm not gonna put on anything religious or political, so I'm just gonna do bumper stickers for local stores and such, or things that I think just look nifty. So far I have four stickers on there, all from local coffee shops, but ironically, none of them are shops I frequent on the regular.

Jobs

That job I talked about last week? I was offered it, and for specific reasons I won't go into, I turned it down. It was a hard choice for me to make, because I knew that if I didn't take the job and stayed where I'm at, I'll continue to be profoundly unhappy and stressed. If I did take that job though, I'd also be profoundly unhappy and stressed, but in different ways. It's amazing how having to choose between two awful choices can be so incredibly difficult.

Television

I'm almost done with Avatar: The Last Airbender. While I can't say it's really my thing, I completely understand why people like it. It's got some wonderful characters, good story development, and the two go hand in hand to show people grow and change. Out of everyone in the series, I think Uncle Iroh is my favorite, because he's not only a strong and loving man, he is a wonderful example of someone who has made the conscious choice to not only seek redemption and seek betterment, but to use what he's been through to help someone else who is walking down that same path. That's a good character to have, for any kind of story, not just one aimed at children.
