Chips Ahoy - The Hold Steady

My phone came today. SE K800i. This is me getting angry on the phone.

Found out that I can not get the Eagle Creek backpack I wanted. D'oh!.

And today was most likely my last shift at Target. YES!. Awesome I think. I hated working in that place.

Such Great Heights - The Postal Service.

Today I looked at Black Wolf backpacks. They seamed to be good for there price. They were much cheaper than the Eagle Creek and High Sierra packs.

I also got a Snorkel and Air Bed. They are not for my trip to Japan. They are for Australia Day. My family and i are going camping yeah.

Will look at medical kits tomorrow and hopefully here back about getting the Eagle Creek pack I inquired about.

Sail Away - David Gray

Never knew how hard it would be to find a decent travel pack.

Have narrowed my search to two different packs. The Eagle Creek Voyage 65L.

Or the High Sierra AT3 SIERRA-LITE

Both different. Need to workout what I need more. Be able to use the bag as a backpack or wheel the bag.

Also need to acquire a medical kit.

Things to do for Monday:

Medical kit
Snorkel gear (for Australia Day)
Bank Money
Findout who has a passport among my friends.

The Hold Steady - Little Hoodrat Friend.

I Should start by introducing myself.

Hi. My name is Jarred Flynn. I am not an alcoholic. I am 21. I lust for travel. This is why i started this blog. To track my Saving and Spending. My goal is Japan in January 2008.

How will I name my posts - The band and song i am currently listening to.

I live 5 minutes walk from the beach yet don't surf. I go to college. I am studying Business. I hope to major in Accounting. Why am i writing short sentences? A lecture told me to do this. Why? it makes the work easier to comprehend. And it works for me.

This is me in my room. On my MacBook. Awesome.
