May 10th go back to work.

So as you can see we have everything planned. There is a lot of detail in the above iternary, and as always everything is subject to change.

Funny that is all we have planned. There are some vague possibilities in the future.

I could be layed off/fired this week.
I could be layed off/fired in the next coming weeks.
If i’m not fired, I will be resigning sometime this summer, more likely late summer then anything else at this moment.
I could possibly be going back to school to get my masters in History to allow me to change careers into the teaching profession. (really excited about this possibility.)
I could possibly be making best friends with corn stalks, as they might be more friendly/interesting then the native populace.
I could be living in a colder environment then i currently live by next winter.
I could additionally be working in a part time job next year.
I could be a father in three years.
I could be penniless, alone, and miserable in four years.
I could also be in Europe, lost and looking for a home in 10 years.
I could run a local bar in a small town in Jefferson Parish in 15 years.
I could sell the local bar to another locale in 40 years.
I could die in the ocean by drowning amongst the pollution and the algae in 58 years.

There are very few things that I know, and fewer of those ideas that I don’t doubt. It seems as I progress into maturity, I notice a need for stability. The following list is a list of items that I know,

  • I love and respect my family, of which Mary is and will always be included. I know that I love Mary.
  • I enjoy ideas, ethical memes, philosophical theory, and dialogue.
  • I enjoy mental challenges and physical challenges. Mental challanges are more enjoyable.
  • I like research, learning, argument, law, and more then I can list at this moment.
  • i hate being a paralegal.
  • I am not anal retentive. One would best describe me as “laisez la faire” if i were an economy.
  • I fight a constant battle to inject consciousness into my everyday activies, by concentration/analysis/argument/evaluation/self-doubt/self-analysis etc.
  • It is a constant battle because the world is out to subdue us. Lets be honest. Our society is a society predicated on the notion that we want contentment and lack of conflict or societal friction.
