Observations at 7:54AM on Monday March 30th, 2009

1. VAST is definitely my second favorite band. I'm not sure who was number 2 before I listened to their latest album, but they took over.

2. I'm in a really good mood today. Today is my favorite.

3. I love it when Kayla comes into bed with us at 3am. Even though it interrupts my sleep, it's my favorite.

4. I bought two mini-composition notebooks yesterday. One for my pocket and one for my nightstand, so when I come up with incredible ideas I can write them down on the spot. Three days ago I came up with the cure for gout, but forgot to write it down and couldn't remember later. But my mini composition notebooks are my favorite.

5. It's really windy up here. The past 2 days have reminded me of Chicago, even though I've never been to Chicago. Chicago is my favorite though.

6. I have not studied for this quiz I'm about to take in Western Civ II right now. Studying is my favorite thing to do.

7. For having only slept 6 hours I have surprisingly high energy levels. Having energy is MY FAVORITE.

8. Is there anything better than listening to 80's and 90's rap mixes while you drive to school in the morning? 80's and 90's rap in the morning is my favorite.

Things I know about myself.

I probably shouldn't be writing this right now because I'm upset. But writing is therapeutic for me, so here goes. I just need to write this stuff down to make myself feel better about myself, as lame and stupid as that may sound.

I know I'm lazy. But I make up for it by working hard at the really important things in life.

I know I haven't been the best husband, father, son, brother, cousin, friend in my life. But I make up for it by loving the best way I know how, with everything that I have inside of me.

I know I don't always walk my talk. But I make up for it by at least trying, every day.

I know I don't own a lot of things. But I'd still be willing to give you the shirt off my back if you needed it.

I know I have a big mouth sometimes. But I make up for it by admitting I was wrong, asking for forgiveness and trying to learn from it.

I know I'm 31 and didn't have a clue what I was supposed to do with my life until last year. But I made up for it by never compromising what was important to me or forgetting what my true passions and desires are.

I know I come off as "black and white" sometimes. But I make up for it by doing my homework and sincerely believing in what I believe in with all of my heart.

I know I don't have a lot of time these days to give my true friends the time I'd like to. But I make up for it by letting them know all the time how much I love and appreciate their friendship.

I know I might come off as too care-free. But I make up for it by caring about a great many things.

I know I'm someone that isn't worth a damn to some people. But I make up for it by being valuable to everyone else I have a relationship with.

I know I come off as having strong opinions about my faith and how I let that guide my paths. But I make up for it by being sincere about it, and unwilling to change for anyone just to make them happy.

I know I'm not in the best shape. But I make up for it by spending quality time with my family, friends and children, enjoying everything life has to offer.

I know that I don't always know what I'm doing or where I'm going. But I make up for it by knowing how to get back on the path when I veer off of it.

I know I might not be someone that everyone wants to be around or converse with. But I make up for it by never allowing that to be the reason I stop caring about them.

I know I say things that might come off as hurtful sometimes. But I make up for it by knowing that it comes from a good place that was only intended to help you grow.

I know I'm selfish sometimes. But I make up for it by putting others first 99.9% of the time.

I know I might not get out of my comfort bubble that often. But I make up for it by participating in something that is greater than myself.

I know I struggle with letting my anger get the best of me sometimes. But I make up for it by not letting that happen very often.

I know I am a walking contradiction sometimes. But I make up for it by not allowing that to be a regular occurrence.

I know I'm human. But I make up for it by never forgetting that.

I just don't want to be one of those bloggers that blogs for the sake of blogging. (If only I could have used the word "blogged" in that sentence, I would have used every form of the word "blog".)

For some reason, I feel like I'm suffering from creative writers block. I used to come up with 2 or 3 weird/creative/insightful things a day to blog about, and now I feel like I haven't had one of those inkling's in months. I really do contribute it to the fact that I am writing papers all the time for school. I have been concentrating on studying, working at school after school and then being "daddy" when I get home. So, the point is, is that I don't feel very creative or weirdly minded the past couple months. I'm also trying to raise money for my trip to Africa, make sure I remain balanced in my husbandly/fatherly/studently roles, and get in better shape too.

So I'm sorry for the lack of updates on borbafett.net. I enjoy blogging, and I enjoy knowing there's a few of you out there who enjoy reading my meanderings.

I guess one thing I have been thinking about since Friday morning when one of my professors asked it in class, is "If I could sit down with anyone in this world, living, who would I want to and why?" In class off the top of my head I answered "Steven Spielberg to talk about film", but that's a lame answer and I'm not even sure I believe myself. The thing is, I don't have a clue who I'd like to sit down and rap with. The easy answer is to say someone like Barack Obama or Kim Jong Il, but I don't care about politics and I'm not impressed with world leaders. I've also got to meet my fair share of celebrities and athletes in my life, so I can't think of any one of them either. There's probably someone that once I think of them I'll think to myself "DUH, I can't believe I didn't think of them immediately." But remember, the question is "living" person.

I hate to sound like my father, but if I hear my girls say "daddy" one more time today, I'm going to change my name.
