Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my birthday. I'm 26 years old now.

Today was the last day of class for the spring semester. If you didn't know I've been pursuing a master's degree in information systems up at unt. It was kind of sad walking off campus tonight, knowing I wouldn't be back for a while.

I'm not planning on taking summer classes; actually I have no plans whatsoever. I imagine I'll start up again in the fall, which will be here soon enough. Who knows maybe I'll tack on a class at the end of summer if I get motivated. I am not exactly in a hurry though. The master's thing is mostly an entertainment thing, since I really still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Year 25 was an interesting one upon reflection. I've grown in many ways... even a beard (think Dante from Clerks). I did the whole going back to school thing. At work, I changed cubicles and moved back to a former building. Made a few new friends, and lost track of some. More people I know got married, though the weddings are starting to blur in my memory.

I just wish I could win the lottery so I can redefine my life, for better or worse. It may seem silly pin hope on such an improbable thing, but that's seems to be what I need to make something happen in my life. Something has to shake my foundation, and the lotto would be the most benign. Anything else would more than likely have worse consequences. Really I'm just looking for security, like most people.

The web site is going through revisions again. Changed the style for the underlying pages, so now things are light instead of dark. No real color to speak of, since I'm more comfortable with grays. Expect the homepage to change soon, as I want all the pages to be more cohesive. Just trying to put my creative energies somewhere. I hope someone finds it entertaining.
