Happy New Year! Don't forget the leap
second. (The comments are worth reading, if you're unaware of just
how arbitrary timekeeping is.)
Somewhat uncharacteristically, I think, I start 2006 with some
goals/desires/intentions. At the beginning of 2005, I think I'd
forgotten exactly how my intentions and internal state determine the
opportunities and "coincidences" that come my way.
That's it, really. That's plenty.
- Open up. I started 2005 with a relationship crashing and burning
in an all-too-familiar way, though I managed that iteration vastly
better than in the past. Still, I figured it'd be good to stay single
for a while and "sort things out". It really just led to a hermetic
year of some useful processing, but mostly just not having sex. Let's
not do that this year.
- Chill the fuck out. Following on the above, I'm remembering that
I can just lay it all down. Everything. Be free. A leaf on the wind. I
took a hiatus from the Flow; I hoped, I wanted, I desired. It fucking
sucked. Get back with the program, you dumbass monkey.
- Continue kicking ass at work. This encourages them to pay me more
money while continuing to work less, which all keeps me feeling good
that I can stay employed through the next recession.
- Keep training toward that black belt, certainly because it's
training, but also...
- ...I have a dream, wherein I store or sell my stuff and go to
Europe for several months, especially France and Spain. I'd rather do
this after I get my shodan, which should be 2-3 years; this handily
coincides with the end of a lengthy term at my current job (or a time
when I can arrange a leave of absence). This also gives me some time
and a goal for doing some investing.
