FINALLY a sunny day! It's about 50 degrees out, but I don't care; the window is open anyway. Need to get some fresh air in my room. Funky smell...

I picked up my free ticket to the ECE Senior Banquet today. I had to fill out a survey, which took about 10 minutes. Well worth the trip to Ping's!

I tried making a steak recipe last night, which turned out OK. On the way back from the gym I grabbed some cheap steak at Price Chopper and just peppered the shit out of it. Came out great. Tonight I'm trying a Thai favorite of mine: stir-fry chicken with cashews. One of my altogether favorite dishes. Can't wait.

I also can't wait to go golfing tomorrow. The course might be a little soggy, but I'll manage. I need to get my $25 worth.

I've tried reading Jim Cramer's book, but for some reason I just can't get into it. It's pretty dense, but not too big. It's got a lot of advice on stocks and stuff. We're starting the topic of investments tomorrow in Personal Finance, so maybe I'll be more interested then. Right now I'm more concerned about my Roth IRA. It's going OK so far. I read online that 25% of Americans don't have any savings, including retirement. That's pretty substantial. That's 25% that most likely will need the government's help once they stop working, meaning Medicaid and welfare are going to be pinched. I'm not sure if this is a consistent figure in history, but I figured the number would be around 10% or maybe 15%. When 1/4 of the population has no savings, the other 3/4 are going to pay for it.

Volleyball game tonight against Phi Sigma Sigma. Playoffs! Hopefully it will go well. No big deal. I might stop by the lacrosse game against UNH.

I'm not a huge fan of soccer, but I do like to watch a game from time to time, especially when I'm home and we have three or four channels on DirecTV. Today I saw a video of an awesome goal scored by Barcelona's Lionel Messi. Incredible.
