Work is going good.

Thinking about getting a car. I suppose a monk wouldn't drive a Lexus.

I thought about waiting till September.

This weekend seems really long for some reason.

Been reading "Being Nobody, Going Nowhere" by Ayya Khema. Reading about the 5 hindrances right now. Just finished sensual desire, now I'm on ill-will. My teacher suggested it. She is going up to Barre for a month.

Thought that I should take the 5 precepts. What if I get an ant invasion? I think that's the only thing holding me back. I did kill a couple of gnats today in my apartment though. I had the opportunity to kill one that was near my finger reading but I didn't. I guess that's progress.
