Another year older

I celebrated my birthday yesterday. I’m amazed at how much younger I feel than I really am. It must be all of the heavy metal guitar that I keep practicing and the video games I keep playing. That’s not to say that I feel less responsible than before. I agree that I’m still single, I don’t have kids, I have a really great job (well, for another nine months anyway), and I have this (somewhat) amazing ability (perhaps it’s just a passion) to play guitar. But I also have this sense of wisdom that I didn’t have when I was younger. On another note, my parents celebrate their wedding anniversary today, so here’s to them.

But I’m not really focused on turning older right now. I almost forgot that my birthday was coming until Tuesday. I’m more concerned about finding another job opportunity. It’s important for me to think of that this early in my career (don’t we all wish we could retire after four years of working?). That’s not to say that I’m not looking, though. I have a variety of opportunities right now, and I’m sure more will surface. In fact, I’m looking forward to a position as a supervisor within my own department. I still think it’s great that my family, my friends, and my coworkers have been very supportive, and I really thank them for that. I’m also glad that I’ve had the opportunity to discuss this with so many of them.
