enjoying a problem-free moment

It always seems like there's some problem in my life. At least one. There's always something in the corner of my mind; I haven't finished a huge school assignment, I still need to call my boss and ask him for a week off, I can't find my wallet... stuff like that that I put off and cringe whenever I think of them (all of those were just examples). Up until a few minutes ago, my problem was trying to convince my dad to let me go to the UW. He wasn't not letting me, it's just that he kept trying to get me to be interested in Western since it costs less. For the past few days I've been putting together a little argument, gathering up ammunition to use in my final effort to persuade him, like how the costs between the two are actually very close. But just a couple minutes ago, he came downstairs and asked me if I knew how much it would cost to go to UW. I showed him, and showed him how it was close to WWU's tuition. He had this idea that "UW's tuition raises as much as it can each year", but when I showed him that this year's and last year's tuition was only $600 apart, that theory went out the window. Then he told me that he wasn't going to stand in the way of what college I go to, as long as I work out financial aid and scholarship stuff. Yay. I would celebrate but all I've eaten today is birthday cake and I'm too starving to move anything but my fingers. See ya.

Steve's. Actually it was yesterday, but I ordered a cool cake at Safeway and brought it to work and we had a little party and stuff.
