Journal Entry – December 30th, 2017

It is 3:46 AM on December 30th, 2017.  I woke up at 1:30 AM but couldn’t go back to sleep.  I really didn’t want to get up so early and tried to go back to sleep but it wasn’t happening.  I then picked up my cell phone, opened the usual apps and got to searching for a discount on GoDaddy.

The search eventually got me to get out of bed as I found a code which I thought might work.  It didn’t.  I’m not happy with the crazy price increases from GoDaddy and would like to switch but it is a pain.  It is such a hassle that this is exactly what GoDaddy banks on in raising their prices to extremes:  customers won’t leave, will pay and GoDaddy’s stock can keep increasing.

Perigee Super Moon 2016: the Moon hasn’t been this close to the Earth since January 6th, 1948 and won’t be again until November 25th, 2034.

*Reminder to look back at this post in 2034 and remind myself of what my life was on 11/13/2016.  I’ll be 57.

I wonder what my grandparents were doing on that date?  World War II had recently ended and so Grandpa would have been back for just over two years.  He also didn’t graduate until 1948 and so it is possible he was studying for tests!
