First Journal Entry

My first zero day recorded in this journal... My first anything recorded in this journal. I imagine a zero day is more satisfying when you've actually done something to deserve it. All that I've managed to do is not go to work and register with Postholer. I consider it a day well spent. I've been putting off starting a journal for a while now. At first it was I didn't want to start it until I could confirm that I'm actually going to be able to go on this hike. Well that's taken care of. My employer (Capella University) has graciously allowed me a leave of absence. I've got mixed feelings about that. I'm very grateful for the time off, but I also feel like my license to bitch about work has been revoked. Don't get me wrong! Capella is an capital A Awesome place to work. I just like to bitch while I work. :) My fiance has decided to allow it. She's awesome, but she has no interest in doing something like hiking the PCT, so I'm going it alone. The rest of my family think I'm a little crazy, but they're used to my odd mixture of obsessive, over-competitive, and incorrigible traits. Not a great set of characteristics for office cubical life, but they seem like they would perfect to help get me through this hike when the going gets tough. "When the going gets tough, the obsessive, over-competitive, incorrigible keep hiking." or something like that... Who am I quoting? I dunno.
