CrowX compliance for April: 62%, a little better. This month I excelled at housework and made my piano lessons, but failed to make any progress on sailing or language skills. I also lost 5 pounds so I'm almost into my desired weight range.

Ah college towns...There's much to like about college towns, the Neverland situation, the liberal ideals, the naive eager attitudes, the late night partying, the free stuff every May, but this particular photo is about what not to like. Since college is only 4 years long, but seems like forever, there is a rash of bad planning that consumes most college kids. This photo is of a goldfish, no doubt abandoned (possibly flushed) by its owners that managed to survive. While you have to admire the goldfish for having braved the wild and becoming king among fish, you also have to think about the tragedy of college kids all across America leaving behind their life's accumulations in a small town that was so happy to host them for four years. You can't just trash the place and move on! It's find for you, but I live here! Happy graduation, and congratulations.
