Friday Afternoon Confessional: Can-kicking
I confess that I have grown bored with news stories that consist of people kicking cans down roads. The Eurozone debt issue is a great example of that, as is the federal budget apparently. Those who momentarily thought the financial crisis would cause a wholesale reevaluation of our world economic system were probably underestimating the degree to which a major panic actually reinforces the kind of short-term thinking that got us into trouble in the first place.
I confess that I always enjoy tearing the last month’s page off of my desk calendar, as I will do today. I confess that I am disappointed by the realization that I cannot pursue my “financial goals” (first of all, digging out of the hole I got myself into this summer) as aggressively as I had initially envisioned — particularly once I realize that I have to pay my own way to AAR this year.
I confess that I’m going to clean the hell out of this apartment today, a task that I’ve been anticipating all week and probably more. I got a new mop and everything.
