Some feel the need to create music or companies, they want to build something a legacy. I feel that I’m driven to create great people. I am starting to expect more out of the people around me. I want to stand side by side with people who I am willing to go to war with.
A lot can happen in a very short amount of time. While I have a prediction of where I will be in 4 months, I do not know who I will be at that moment in time. What my mind will be set on, or who will be standing at my side helping me on my journey.
One year ago I posted talking about how frustrating it was to not be settled, I talked about my attempts to lose weight, drink less and get back to a better physical and mental state. These are still things that I still am striving to do. I do not feel like I failed because reviewing the last 365 days I have accomplished a lot.
I worked for a production company and started to learn a new trade. Ran a 10k some 5k’s and 2 half marathons. Karaoke! I got a job at a big internet company in Silicon Valley, Concerts and music festivals Outside Lands, Oysterfest, Cake, Tenacious D, Mute Math, Rufus W, My roommate and I adopted a dog for 3 months, I moved from East Bay to San Jose, Had visitors friends and relatives visit from Australia, Boston, New York, New Jersey, Backpacked and camped in Yosemite, “Teacher” home poker nights, I closed the door on a creative project I was working on for 5 years and was invited to be a part of one I was a fan of, Comedians and Cirque’s acts, Baseball and Soccer games, Travel for work, Dating in and out of the Bay area, Surfing and Beach Trips, Dance parties and countless stories with great people both new and familiar.
It took me a long time but I’m finally waking up, I’m back to my core, my sense of adventure and curiosity is back. I’m a version of myself that I haven’t been in a very long time and I’m happy that I’m back.
