Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of this week

It's probably worth mentioning that I'm having trouble remembering to capitalize letters at the beginning of sentences since I refrained from doing so in my old blog. I once read a poem that persuaded me to write in all lower case letters in order to gain some street cred in the blogging world. Now, after years of doing so, my brain automatically reverts to this writing style within the blogger program. I'm trying to break the habit.

Tomorrow I start my real classes which begin at 8 AM and end in about two years. Simply based on the mass amount of homework I did this weekend, I think I can confidently surrender my personal life right here and now. The upside is that I actually enjoyed the chapters and cases I read in preparation for tomorrows discussions. Sick, I know. Also, I guess if there's a school that has to own my soul for the next two years, it may as well be the right one.*

In other news, I was stung by a hornet twice this weekend. The same hornet. While cruising down the road on the 4-wheeler we somehow collided at my neck, the only piece of exposed skin on my body, and at what felt like that exact moment he managed to sting me there, fall down my shirt, and sting me again in the chest. It felt like an electric shock had gone through me and I'm still not sure how I managed to pull the bike over, rip off my helmet, goggles, and gloves, reach down my shirt and pull him out of there without further injury to myself. I don't know if I can say the same about the hornet because my only inclination through the mind numbing pain was to throw him as far as I could, but I'd like to think he made it out of there okay and that I'm not going to hell for needlessly killing one of Gods creations. Hopefully there are exceptions for when a FREAKING HORNET GOES DOWN YOUR SHIRT. Anyway, this was by far one of the more random occurances of my life, and hopefully one of those occurances I can write about with proper punctuation and still gain some street cred in the bloggersphere.**

**Is the word "blogosphere"?

It strikes me odd that most personal communication is done with all lower caps by most people. I try to avoid that. else wise it seeps into my professional dealings. And since I write emails for a living, I should refrain from looking like I went to school in a barn.

Though most Easterners think most of the West is still wild. And barn-filled.

Does this comment qualify as a mini-blog post yet?

Needlessly killing? What more does an insect need to do to deserve a quick painless death? I would've taken care of the bugger for the first offense. Of course, I am a crude westerner who recieved most of my proper education in a barn.
