Holiday Dinner at Adrians

I have been working non-stop on Graduate School applications.  I have it narrowed down to about 18 from 50 that I was looking at 2 weeks ago.  I've been working about 10 hours a day on the process so I guess it's really convenient that I still don't have a job.  I do have an interview with Eastern Mountain Sports on Monday though that I think is promising.  It's been really stressful trying to email all the professors I need to, search for jobs, and spend time with family.  No room for much fun.   Scan0003Recently when I was visiting Chris downstairs at Elevate Cycles he told me about new protective body armor made by SIXSIXONE that he could order at about 45% of the retail value.  This past Tuesday I brought down a check for a grand and gave it to him to order a ton of gear that I plan on throwing on ebay.  Even if I sell it at 70% of the retail I stand to make a ton of cash.  I'm sure I'll be able to sell the gear at what I bought it at so I don't see how this scheme won't work... Check out the picture to see what it looks like.  If this flies I'll be able to use it as my sould source of income while I apply to schools and it won't take up that much time... keepin' my fingers crossed on this one.  Scan0006Anyway, back to the title of this entry... Adrian and his girflriend Kristin invited me over for dinner tonight at their place.  She had cooked delicious caseroles and a full turkey with all the fixings for an early christmas dinner.  It was delicious and just the break I needed from a hard day of emails and researching!  Thanks guys.  A week ago Josh, Jess and I decided that we should throw a Christmas party here and I made up some invitations and sent them out to our close friends.  The party is set for the 23rd and I hope a lot of people will be able to make it.  Should be a good time.
