So, we will soon have the summer finished.

I was getting towed by my buddie's GTI on my bike, Entered an intersection illegally, Cut off a cop while doing so and got away with it. I didn't do much of anything but ride, didn't even make it to any good parks this summer

Mine felt like a waste. At least I got plenty of drinking in. But now it's back to school and a grueling work schedule. Yay?

laziest summer of my life. Barely played any sports other than softball every sat. Drinking was the norm. No beach house or traveling.

Took the wife and kids to Southern California for a week (just last week, in fact.) A good time was had by all. Beaches, theme parks, Mexican food, seafood, Hollywood Hard Rock Cafe, and much, much more. Tough to be back at work today, though...

I went to work every day just like normal. Welcomed my first grandchild into the world. Buried my dog that I had for almost 12 years. Bought a truck that I am fixing up. Finished my shed.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
