Happy Monday From Your Friendly Neighbourhood Robert Reid Hawley!!!

"I am not concerned that you have fallen - I am concerned that you arise. "
-Abraham Lincoln

Hey folks!

What is up? Not too too darn much i am afraid. What is new? Well i have a job interview tomorrow, i was told to drop in between 9:00 and 3:00 and it will be taken care of. Is it what i want? Hell no! Is is what i need? What do i need? Some cash to take care of outstanding student loans and what is left of them and for next year. What is next year? Well McFLy lets review....next year i am set to return to Acadia University...why? Good thing you asked, ok..here goes i want to take education and there are three ways in, your marks...which for me are a combo of B's, C's and the occasional A...very occasional. There is your resume, and mine is well..going through an editing process because it is BIG! And there is your interview. Now here is where i want to shine, cause in the past lots and lots of people that had great marks did not make it in and others that had lesser marks did. Why? Because it was all about attitude. You can have all the marks ya want honeypie, but if you dont have those street smarts, that will to succeed, then sometimes you end up on the outside looking in. Lots of people have last names, someone on the inside, stuff that gets them in. There are alot of people in good positions that never really had to pay their dues, pump gas in the rain, listen to customers bitch at them all day about trivial bullshit and i feel sometimes the people that pay their dues, have that intestional fortitude to win, they are the better prepped to enter a job rather than someone who sat around all of their life with a frickin silver spoon stuck in their mouth. I like the song "Substitute" by the Who, which was later covered by the Ramones in 1994, it had an awesome lyric that went like:

"I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth"

Truer words were never spoken..t is never too late to be what you might have been, but one cannot get to the top or what he thinks is the top or achieve his goal by sitting on his ass......so what else is new? not much, had a rather lackluster weekend, no wheels were available so i went to Fitness Experience 3 times this weekend here in Middleton and worked out, just easing back into it. This is the 7th summer in a row that i have been going to the gym in Middleton, weird eh? So many things when i think about it that i did for a long time. Went to University so long that i became known as a professional student, which is also slang for a student who stays in school for many years rather than embarking on a career. I dunno, i just wanted to see if i could do it, and i did. That makes me happy. What else did i do for a long time? I worked at the store formerly known as Andrew's for almost 10 years off and on and i think i was the longest serving employee ever at the Middleton branch. What is my point? Longetivity. Some people float from job to job, i used to do that. I remember one year where i worked pumping gas from September 1996 to March 1997 and then worked at the local drug store from March 1997 to July 1997, i was laid off both jobs. I guess when i dedicate myself to something i really believe in, i stick to it. If i dont believe in it...then it falls apart. A combination of things, not happy, not having fun, uncomfortable. Sometimes if it is a combo of the three, then why stay? Sometimes it leads to rumors, people saying i was fired from Japan? Ummmm...they called me twice just this past week, one rumor was that i flunked out of Mount A went around a few years ago...wow...lemmie see, student in good standing last i checked, especially with my second term there being one of the best marks wise i ever had at university. Sometimes i wish people would get their head out of their ass for a change and just ask, dont talk behind me back. Of course i could do it too and respond back, "Talking about you, not to you." something smart ass like that. Recently someone close keeps doing it and i wish he/ she would just say it to my face, probably afraid i would mangle them or something. Jeeesh....
So Tower is re-opening? If it is, then i am happy even though it is probably re-opening as a victim of circumstances, the case here is that Cutten had a MAJOR mold problem. I feel Tower did not get the proper send off that it deserves and i would love to see a reunion of the people who lived there. I mean it is either going to get the wrecking ball or be turned into office space, one of the two. It is a rather large hunk of real estate sitting up there on the hill and i cannot see Acadia just letting it sit there, like they did this past year. Actually i am glad the 2006-07 season for Robert Reid Hawley the First is wrapping up, see Robbo does his years like the hockey season or something like that September to September! LOL! What a year though, heartbreak at November, Japan in January, the nuttiest (or scariest) 7 days of my life while i was there and now back here at the end of June...well July now. And it was my first full year without the guidence and wisdom of my beloved Father whom i hope is watching over me and guiding me as i keep my trek through life going.
Well gang, i got to mow me lawn, go to Greenwood and some other stuff, go to the gym and keep busy....have a good one!
