So I got up at 5:30 this morning and went for a long run. I usually do it at 3:30, but for the last three days, I haven't been able to. Well, I had a lot of pent up energy inside and it all came out this morning. There's something about being able to get away from everything and everyone and having a little private time when nobody else is out that I love. I get to process my thoughts and make plans for my day, for my week, or even for the distant future.

 

Kate and I have finally decided to commit to a date to get married. We've had a lot of pressure from people around us to wait, but I don't want to wait anymore, and neither does she. We're just going to go to city hall and get it done. I admit I'm a little nervous about it, but I'm not sure why. My initial plan was to marry her before the baby was born, and now the baby's seven months old. I know it's the natural next step, and nothing I've ever wanted has ever felt more like the right thing to do than this, but I still have butterflies about it.

 

As far as my writing goes, I have to apologize but right now I feel so overwhelmed by life that I haven't taken any time to sit down and do it. I could go down the list, but it's the same list of things that I write about every time I blog, so you already know what's up. I'll do what I can to get something pounded out soon, but I'm not promising anything.

 

Oh yeah, one more thing...

 

 

I tried to read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and my eyes nearly went crossed. There are WAY too many pages and words, but it starts out as an interesting story. I wanted to read it so that I could sit on my high horse and say things like "Everyone should read Atlas Shrugged" and "Who's John Galt?" But alas, I fail. I think I might look for the audio version of it and listen at night or something. I'm too busy and quite frankly, too lazy to read a book that big.

It's an interesting book. Much like "The Fountainhead" is to "Anthem", "Atlas Shrugged" goes deeper into her whole philosophy (an expansion of what she tried to communicate in TFH). Though I liked it, I preferred TFH. I won't be reading it again.

 

So... get the audio book :P.

I downloaded the audio version off of Itunes and I'm listening to it whenever I drive. I thought I'd have time to listen at night, but it's not working out that way. Also, I tried it on my morning jog, but alas, not such a good idea.
