It’s a boy! :D

Pass out the cigars with the blue wrappers, we’re having a boy!!! :D
I couldn’t be more excited to have a little man running around my house. I think that before I knew it, I knew I wanted a boy. Selenia and I cried with joy when we found out— how could we not? He’s going to be perfect, and now we have a starting point to where we’re going to start picking out baby names. ;) Oh, that’s gonna be the fun part, trust me. Hehe.
As for my essay writing activity, having dropped it brought its good results. I’m doing better with school papers and my essays are more in-depth. Sometimes a bit of rest in the evening and a more focused work on school assignments is what makes the difference— even though I miss writing for Fulmine. Really. ^_^ When I look at websites like Essay-Bag.com (it’s targeted to Australian students, but who cares? I visit it anyway) I feel I miss my volunteer activity even more, but a day only has 24 hours, and I have only so much time each day to dedicate to writing. It’s tough, but it has to wait.
Right now, I’m halfway to finish a paper that’s due tomorrow. I wish I had not to work today, because it’s an important day here in Italy – Liberation Day – but I had no time to work on this assignment last night (I literally crashed!) so there was no other choice but complete it today. It’s 6:32 in the afternoon and I have all the evening, thus I’m sure I’ll be done with it soon after dinner.
It’s Selenia time tonight. :) She deserves it— all her patience to wait for me when I run errands morning to night is and was always a saintly patience. Thank you, sweetheart. <3
Been a Leader since 2004

I have to do my essay for a class that I MUST finish in order to graduate, but there is so much Leadership paperwork that’s also nagging me and commanding my attention that it’s difficult to concentrate on either one. I’m prioritizing school right now, since I have a very real threat of not accompanying my graduating class if I fall behind in my studies.
Hopefully I will finish in a timely manner, enough so that I’ll have time to set aside for Leadership paperwork, but I will not do it quickly at the risk of quality for either one. That’s ridiculous; if you do not have the time to do something right and well on the first time.. when do you suppose you’ll find the time to do it over the correct and quality way for a second time?
And I want to add a thought:
I became the youngest Leader to assume the authority at age ten.
One might think that a child is hardly capable of such things, but I was met with nothing but encouragement and positivity at every turn. Such a lucky boy I was— and lucky man I am now. Engaged, studious, and with ten years of Leadership on my back. That means a lot to me.
Between December 2013 and January 2014, we Leaders —with the help of ALL the Robocity citizens— are going to nominate three new successors for the upcoming decade, but I hope in a way that it will not be me or that I am even eligible… because I’m honestly tired after nearly ten years of this job, and if I get enough money to, I want to enroll to university.
I do graduate from the Robocity High School this coming June, but it is a lot to handle for a man of my age who only just got out into “the real world” and out of academia.
And then there’s Selenia, who’s pregnant with our first child and we’re soon getting married. Perhaps in May 2013, if we don’t get delayed.
Wish me good luck. :)
