Today marks the first day of my 26th year of existence. So far I feel quite pleased. I have some progress in my various goals. I go out more often. I talk to more people. I have found a few girls who have taken some sort of an interest in me. Life goes on without missing a beat. In my mind, my writing is shaping up nicely. Programming is left to the side, for now. But I plan on working on that fairly soon. Getting a license and a car is within my reach. For once I can see myself living an ordinary independent adult life. For various reasons I’m doing anything crazy like moving out. Or spending vast amounts of money, or doing silly things in general. My time management, project management and organizational skills are far better than they were a year ago. And most importantly, I still see a glimmer of hope of my eeking out a prosperous existence on this rock. My situation is not the simplest or the easiest, butI still I have room for maneuvering. All in all, the day after and the coming days looking promising.
