I’ve decided to run for President and am naming James Phillips as my Vice President. Of course you know this isn’t true, but I’m now old enough to in case I have a change of heart.
10 Years Ago
10 years ago today I was partying in New Orleans with friends, celebrating my birthday, my 2nd graduation from graduate school, my soon to be departure from Mississippi, my new job in DC, and the end of my cheerleading career. Most of the things we celebrated during that trip have changed, my birthday and the fact I graduated being about the only things that have remained the same. Since then I have returned to and left Mississippi, left DC, and returned to cheerleading, aka Hotel California.
I haven’t written much this year. That’s been somewhat intentional as I’ve focused on other things in my limited free time. The only other thing I’ve published this year was actually written and scheduled during 2011, so this is my first real post of the year.
The Next 10 Years
What will I be doing in 10 years? I have no idea, but I know I’m going to do what I can to enjoy the journey to that day. A couple observations from the last year or 10:
People make poor decisions around me.
I’m a much better me than you’ll ever be and you’re a much better you than I’ll ever be.
It’s not too late for me to make lifelong friends.
I don’t have anything else to say except for vote for me when I run for President.
