I’m not very used to contentment. The last few years of my life have had very little of it. But things are starting to go my way. And it feels pretty darn good.
For the first time in almost a decade, I have a car to call my own. I’m not going to go into why I haven’t had one, except to say I’ve done very stupid things that left me with very little saved up for things like transportation. But thanks to the overwhelming generosity of family and friends, I’ve been able to get to and from a job. And about a month ago, an opportunity to acquire to a vehicle from one of my brothers came about and I jumped on it. No more having to schedule any sort of shopping trips around other people’s schedules, or having to walk across the town in extreme warmth or cold just to put a little coin in the bank.
Now, what do I do with this newfound freedom to spend the days anywhere other than in my recliner or curled up in my bed trying to stay warm without running the heater? So many years cooped up inside just to avoid having to stick my proverbial thumb out to go anywhere; how much has the world changed that you can’t see on a computer or television screen? Is Lindsay Lohan still on track to be the biggest movie star of the 21st century?
It’ll certainly make for some more interesting content on here. I can actually take trips to things, interact with other bloggers; do a whole lot more than just sit around and shoot my keyboard off on whatever’s happening in the world. Let’s face it; in the grand scheme of keyboard warriors analyzing the events of the day I’m just not as sharp as someone who’s actually out there living their life outside of the same four walls.
Now, to answer the ultimate question: where do I go from here? Any suggestions?
