Stayin’ Alive

One of the things I’m trying to do with myself over the next few months is get back into many of the things that make me feel good about being a human.

Because, if we’re honest, life’s too short. I used to feel like I was leading by example, and for a little while now I’ve been feeling like I’ve been hit repeatedly with the WTAF Hammer™.  It’s been more than a year of spinning my wheels without a lot of traction.  Fuck that noise, amirite?  When life hands you lemons, you buy a fucking gun.

My job is pretty high velocity, and over the last 12 months I let it take too much. I’ve given myself a little challenge to nudge more of myself back into my life. There’s lots of things I really like doing — spending time with my wife, cooking, playing video games, hanging out with friends, and exercise. All of these took a backseat in my first year on the job and that’s just not okay.  Time for more smelling of the roses, or in my case, eating BBQ and running in the sun.

Enter: the worked-out-so-hard-it-looks-like-you-pissed-yourself-because-sweat-yo.

That’s me: keepin’ it classy.  See you around, 2015.
