A quick post before bed without any logical choice for a title

I just spent a good and hefty amount of time talking with Michael about girls, relationships, and all of that good stuff. It was a really good experience- for a lot of reasons. Me and Michael, for all that we joke about stuff like this, can talk really professionally about it all. We can be completely open and frank about things because we know we understand each other. We don't have to censor or worry about stuff, because we're not competing over the same girls, we know that what we say is safe with the other guy, and we know that we care about each other and that we're gonna watch each others' backs. I'm really glad I've got a big brother to talk to. We both came out of talking tonight feeling better about stuff, I feel. We both learned some valuable things tonight, and I'm excited to apply them.

I gained some insight tonight from Michael, and I really appreciate that. I also gained a bit more insight into the investment model that me and my boys have been using to explain relationships for a while. I've got a better idea of what I want to do, plan wise. I don't know what I want to do, but I've got a plan to make a plan to figure out what I want to do. I'm closer than before.

Two things come out of this. The first is that I feel much better. I had a rough start to the day. This evening was really great. After mutual, I hung out with a lot of really good people at Ricka's to watch the jazz game. We played some basketball outside, and that was incredible. It was a beautiful night. For the first time ever, I enjoyed playing basketball with girls. Yeah, sure, Melissa got injured, but I still had a good time. It was good to be out there with good people. Add that great experience to the great experience of talking with Michael, and it's been a good evening. I feel recharged and focused now. I needed this.

The second thing to come out of this is what I hope will be a good post. I want to finally sit down and write out the investment model. It will really end up being a breakdown of how I see things, and I'm really excited about that. I always learn so much when I analyze in a post, and I'm excited to learn more about how I interact when it comes to this topic. It will be hard to pull it off, but I really think it's something I want to do.

Moral of the story? I just wanted to stop by and say that it's been a good evening, and that I really liked talking with Michael. I'm hoping to write the investment post tomorrow. Part of me wants to make it a professional post, but the majority of me wants to keep it like it's always been. It'll just be me ranting. It'll probably end up fairly lengthy. Some people will be interested to read it, others won't.

Anyways friends, I hope things are going well for you. It's been a good evening, and I'm excited about tomorrow. Every day this week has felt like Friday. We're getting closer to it. Tomorrow is Thursday, yippee skippy. Have a good one friends~
