Journal of activities:
I woke this morning knowing that I had to finalize preparations for my speech at UC Berkeley. My speech is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Early this morning I searched for more images on the Internet to make an effective presentation. I wanted the students to follow along with the lecture, and graphics always help to hold their attention. When the sky began to lighten I left my house to run, and Carole joined me for the final 75 minutes. I really enjoy exercising with her. The busy schedule she keeps with school and work means that we don’t get to exercise together everyday, so I really appreciate her company when she can join me. After we concluded our run, we got dressed and drove to the bank. I’m having to establish credit in society, and the only way of establishing financial credit is by borrowing money. The quarter century that I served in prison meant that I walked out with a credit score of zero. To begin building it, I set some of my savings aside into an account that would guarantee a loan. I had to return to the bank again today to finalize those loan documents. In the afternoon, I spent some time with my friend Lee Nobmann, showing him the new commercial we created and discussing my marketing plans going forward. We’re going to have dinner together on Saturday.

I had to return to the Wells Fargo Bank today to sign more documents related to a loan I received. I also spent some time with my friend and mentor, Lee Nobmann.
