day ?????: the annual pre-birthday roundup
It's been a while, my friends... it's been a while since the voices inside my head demanded to be heard. Ok, there aren't any actual voices in my head, but still what can I say?
In typical Schmassion fashion, come birthday time every year I start thinking about where I've been, where I'm going and what the heck I want to be when I grow up. This year has been one big adventure and I only hope that some of the adventures that I've had can be repeated in years to come. It's been a humbling experience with a steep, steep learning curve and I only thank the great beyond that I've come out relatively unscarred.
It's been a year of decisions and a year of changes - even if just small things like my outlook on life and the mindset with which I approach things. I'm no longer stuck in my ways and look at people and things for the possibilities that they hold. I'm hopeful for the future... no longer bitter about the past. It's about time, eh?
So, to recap:
- minor fame, even more minor fortune
- happy, sappy
- busy, busy
- made time to date
- opened up possibilities to who I date
- made time not to date and to take care of myself
- accepted the world for what it is
- accepted monkeyco for the money it gives
- learned to accept people for who they are and not who they were
What's to come for year 34, no one knows, but I'm really hoping French Laundry has a cancellation come Christmas/New Year's and that the Sista's little wee one-to-come emerges healthy and hearty. Oh, and a little more fame and a little more fortune for me wouldn't hurt either.
Cheers to me. almost 34. that's old. fuck.
