This year I turn 30. That’s a milestone, right? I remember when I turned 15 thinking I wanted to play in a band and travel the world. I also remember thinking by the time I was 30, I’d be ready to settle down, get married, and start thinking about a long term career. Needless to say, I grew up faster than I had imagined at 15 and I don’t mind that.

This is the year I feel like an official adult. Mostly because of the number 30. It’s old enough to know better but young enough to still have fun. I’ve changed a lot though the years and still somehow stayed true to myself. I don’t think I’ll ever have everything figured out.

I haven’t given an update on myself in awhile so here it is.

  • I’m trying to record an album. I had no idea how much work it was going to be to do 10 songs and record all of the parts on my own. It’s going to take a lot longer than I had expected. I hope it’s worth the time and effort.
  • I’ve been at VSP for 1 year and 5 months now. It’s a great company to work for. I’ve learn a lot since I’ve started. I miss using WordPress daily the most since working here. There isn’t a ton of things I’d change about my job other than that. Using WordPress is much more enjoyable than any JAVA system.
  • I haven’t played drums in about 3 years and I think that is going to change soon. Beth is getting me a drum set for my birthday gift.
  • We just tore out a tree in our front yard. The California drought isn’t a joke. We are looking into replacing our lawn with rock or something that doesn’t require as much water.

For my 30th year around the sun, I just want to enjoy life and focus on simplicity. I want to remove as much stress as possible. I also want to remove as many physical items as I can that I no longer use. The older I get the more I want to remove things that are not needed.

Here is to my dirty 30’s!
