Each year when it’s time for my birthday I reflect back and see if it topped the year before. I’m pretty sure I’ll get to a year that simply can’t be topped, but I sit here right now feeling pretty good about the future even though on the surface it seems to be going backwards (with the living in dad’s basement thing). I’m working on a plan that will get me out of here for hopefully a long time, but I don’t see much happening before 2009.
I’ll never know if I made the right choices since I can’t turn back time and try something else, but I have no regrets about the choices I’ve made (so far). It has been 14 months since I’ve had a job and I forgot what’s it’s like to sit in front of a computer reading blogs trying not to glance at the clock because I know not much time has passed since the last time I looked at it. I just didn’t fit with the corporate world and with my now useless degree the decision was easy to pursue a more mobile lifestyle of freelancing/writing/blogging. Sure it’s not for most people, but for me it is and I’m enjoying it even though I have to count every dollar I spend.
So tomorrow I will be 29. Last week I noticed some grey hairs in my beard. :shudder:
