Lists about the last month.

"Rollin' with my homies..." - Coolio

"Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I might never be tardy." - Travis,

As recently noted by a dude I know, it has been over a month since my last blog entry. This is the result of multiple factors. The month of July was an interesting one for me. I did lots of things, made a lot of new friends, saw a lot of old friends, and generally lived my life without writing about it that much. In order that my readers (if there are, in fact, more than one of them) might know what's what, here's a list of lists regarding the last month of my life. (Blogger's note: These lists are incomplete, but representative.)

Things that I did in July:
  • Moved
  • Attended MUUSA (Midwestern Unitarian Universalist Summer Assembly, spiritual content in entries to follow)
