You know what? I am totally excited about the upcoming year! I feel really refreshed and focused. Last year at this time I was looking for an apartment in San Francisco (driving down here from Sacramento every weekend was absolute hell), hating my job and was really unclear with what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

It’s strange, how my life progresses. I tend to experience things at different times than other people who are my age. Take this whole what I want to do with the rest of my life thing. Seems like most people went through that kind of discovery in college…but not me! Three years into a pretty decent career at Intel and all of a sudden I decide, “This isn’t really doin’ it for me.”

This year, though, I feel great! My life has direction and I’ve got a good idea of how I’m going to get where I want to go.

While writing this I’ve been pondering whether I’ve been building up to this point for a long time or if there was some event that just set it off. I don’t know for sure, but I certainly can’t discount the great start I had to the New Year with my friends on Treasure Island.

I was in one of those (rare) chatty moods. It’s always funny when I get talkative, because I usually don’t speak too much, so when I do, everyone is always like, “Holy shit, Brad’s talking!”

Anyway, I hope you’re all feeling as refreshed and upbeat as I am. Happy New Year to the readers of!

…all three of you.  😉
