I have the drive to learn something new and go after what I want. I also have the friends to support me and help me in any way they can. For them, I am happy.
I have everything here that I NEED. Things could be better, but it could be a lot worse.
My troublesome dental problems are far from gone, but being managed. Finances are weak but not to the point of desperation. I’m not really interest in a relationship at all right now.
I might lose my car in the near future, but I’m OK with that. Really!
I’m pursuing interests now that have been on my mind for many years and have been something I’ve always kept in the back of my mind (sometimes up front) since I graduated high, and this is the perfect time for me to pursue.
I have a plan.
I have some technical reading to do. I’m learning some new things, but just polishing and updating knowledge I already have somewhere in my spaghetti psyche.
This post is aimed mostly at the people that I have neglected to keep updated with my life, but time is changing for me and the things that are important are being re-prioritized.
In my studies, I’m learning to abide by the pricinple of K.I.S.S.:
Keep It Simple, Stupid.
Keep It Simply Simple
Keep It Stupidly Simple
You get the idea. Less is more.
Before you get any funny ideas, I haven’t “found” religion or anything like that. I’ve just come to the realization that most of the things I sold or left behind in Michigan when I moved to Oregon, I don’t actually miss.
Sure, really miss my friends and family, but I don’t miss having to manage the hundred or so DVDs, games and books that I had.
I had a good job. Some people would argue that it had a good future…but not a good future for me. It was something I could do, but as my interest wained, so did my performance. Why force myself to do something day in and day out that I have no interest in at all? Many people could easily do a job like Garbage Collector or Phone Solicitor, but we don’t do those things if we have other choices, do we?
Despite some challenges, I’m doing alright.
