    Friday QOTW 7/25 - What are you doing with your life?

    Pretty broad question and answer.

    What are you doing with your life?

    Maybe you just got a new job. Maybe your wife is newly pregnant. Maybe your kid is about to start school. Maybe you took up a new hobby. Whatever.

    Working. Sleeping. Eating. Drinking. Saving money to spend it. On a house. To partially fill up with cute little expensive babies.

    Then probably die. Hopefully after many, many years.

    Oh, and I cross stitch. But that's not a new hobby. My new hobby is seeing how much various house accouterments cost.

    Re: Friday QOTW 7/25 - What are you doing with your life?

    I am wrapping up my internship and looking forward to finishing up my last year of college. Don't have exact plans for after college, hopefully going to find a full-time job, otherwise I might just do my own thing for a while with my online business, it makes enough to get by with part time work.

    Other than that, just having a good time!

    I heard a rumor that you were looking to build/buy a house? Is this true?

    Re: Friday QOTW 7/25 - What are you doing with your life?

    Currently using CF to determine days of the week. Thank you, I thought today was Saturday.

    I'm looking to make a career change. I have an interview next month that would bring me back to the Midwest and allow me to invest in season tickets for football/bball! The new job would be a much needed lifestyle change, as right now I travel about 100% of the time for my current job and I'm hardly ever home. So I'm hoping it works out.

    I also just got promoted in the CF Clash of Clans clan to co-leader, so I'm pretty excited about that as well. Lol.

    Just turned my dissertation in to the grad college so pretty much officially done. Hope to hear back from my job interview earlier this week which would require moving out of this great state. :(

    Re: Friday QOTW 7/25 - What are you doing with your life?

    Started a new job in March (and I love it)

    I turned 30 this past May

    Just bought our first house at the beginning of July

    Wife is leaving her job at the end of August to become a stay-at-home mom

    Expecting kid #2 at the end of November

    Very eventful year for the family. It's been a pretty consistent ebb & flow of fear and excitement - and I love it!

    Re: Friday QOTW 7/25 - What are you doing with your life?

    Enjoying it.

    Life is an incredible gift. But we waste it running around trying to leave our mark on the universe and spending too much time on the coulda, woulda, shoulda's.

    Life is what is it. And no matter what we do, or who we are, in a few generations, our names will be forgotten. Sooner or later, we will all be strangers to our descendants.

    So, the best thing to do is to enjoy life. The small things. The feel of the sun on our face, the wind at our back, the tastes and smells and sounds, the knowledge that will soon be lost to us as our atoms transform and return to stardust.

    That's what I'm doing with my life. I'm enjoying it. It is my greatest achievement.
