Independence Day, Car Robberies, and 07/07/07!

Cory Gregory on Thursday, 05 July 2007. Posted in Co-op, Coursework

My life has been ridiculously busy lately. I work at Lockheed Martin every Monday through Friday from 8 am until 4:30 pm and I have class on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 9:50 pm. By the time Wednesday comes, I am exhausted. It's a good thing that there was a holiday this week. I enjoyed both hanging out with my family and friends throughout the day and being able to sleep late in the morning, but this Independence Day wasn't like all the other Independence Days. Thanks to the rain, there were no parties, no sun, and most disappointing, no fireworks! At least it was a relaxing day off.

Back to last Friday. I left my car at a park near my friend Kara's house and we all hopped into her car. We went to her house and hung out there for the night. When we were ready to go home, she dropped me and my brother back off at my car. I looked in my car and realized that the window wasn't there anymore. There was glass all over the inside of my car and my cd player and amp were missing! Kara lives in a really nice area so I didn't think that I would have any problems with leaving my car there. Oh well... Good thing for car insurance.

On a different topic, Saturday is 07/07/07! My whole life, my favorite number has been 7. There really is no explanation as to why 7 is my favorite number, but it just is and most likely will always be. I'm not really a superstitious person, so I don't really think anything life changing is going to happen on that day, but other people think otherwise. According to an article on Yahoo News, three times the normal number of couples plan to get married on Saturday and others will be gambling hoping to hit lucky number 7. I just think it'll be an exciting day, especially since it's a Saturday!
