Theres a Reason Why Life Rymes with Wife

I’m really sick of people constantly asking me to make life-changing decisions. I am not good at making decisions. My personal philosophy for the last three years has been the following:

  • Surround myself with people that I like
  • Dissasociate with those who hurt me
  • Be happy as long as it is not at the expense of others happiness
  • Try to make other people happy

I followed these rules instead of a formal religion. I feel now it has culminated in these circumstances:

  • I have fewer, but closer friends
  • I have to make harder choices about WHO to make happy when conflicts arrive
  • I more frequently find myself giving up my own happiness for others
  • This last gift does not spontaneously mean I will support them, just get out of their way

I still feel nothing.

Road Trip to Columbus with Jason

Geek Road Trip

Columbus Ohio Coffee Shop

There were a lot of men, most sitting alone with their notebooks, in this coffee shop in downtown Columbus. Jason got a cappacino and I got a vanilla latte. It was pretty dang good, the best I’ve had in a while.

Best Buds

Columbus at night–on the move. Jason is getting mad about me being on the phone. Wife is mad that I went at all.
