What’s Going On

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

The following is a brief update about how Micah is living:

Getting a little work in:
Landscaping for a friend of mine who flips houses. Just a few days and hours a week, but every penny helps. Also, my open schedule allows me to babysit my niece and nephews as well as watch over friends’ dogs. So, my new occupation is Lanscapper/Babysitter/Dogsitter, though I have not attempted to do all three at the same time… yet.

Extracurricular Activities:
The Kickball season began a couple weeks, so now my Sundays are full of bouncing red rubber balls and then drinking beer with friends. Good fun, despite my painfully low OBP.

I have also started playing in the occasional Ping-Pong tournament down at a bar called “Blitz Ladd”. Known as the sport of Kings, the competition on Thursday nights is strong and I lose on a regular basis. But, I believe I can compete with best and am now a dedicated student of the game.
(More Information about the Pong tourney can be found here. And, a local news story about it, in which I make a brief background appearance at the 55 sec mark, can be seen by clicking this.)

Well, that is about it. Life has gotten a little bit busier. I am still looking for a full-time job and considering future adventures. For now, I am enjoying the work and activities, even getting a few rounds of Golf in. –Take care.
