Dying Daily #337: Already Won, Working on Time and Worrying about Eclipses

Welcome to the Sunday Pop-Up where I write about whatever pops into my head. It’s hit or miss.

I’ve Already Won

I got to drive to Muleshoe to see Barbara wrestle last night. Max has not been feeling well so we ended up having to drive right back. I enjoy being out on the road though, and I love driving in West Texas. There was a huge storm rolling in as we drove back into town. I’ve never been anywhere that has storms like we have out here.

I look at my life and it’s pretty cool. I’m wearing a shirt with my wife on it right now because she does cool stuff. I love my kids and my work and the amount of freedom and autonomy I have in life. I’m a guy who dropped out of high school, got booted out of college a few times, and made so, so many mistakes along the way that there is no way I have any business with a life and a wife and family like I’ve got. I don’t have much concern about my projects failing or not moving forward a lot more if I don’t. All things considered, I’ve already won.

Future Plans

Keeping the blog a daily thing was the clear winner in the vote for what to do when the year is up. I think I will try to do this by mixing new content with older posts that I am updating for better SEO. I have quite a few things I want to get off the ground, but I am finding that time is an issue. I don’t waste a lot of time, but I still need to figure out a way to do a few more things. I want to move off of the Embracing Fate URL, I just need to figure out a good way to do it. I do wish I had learned more about computers earlier in life.

The End of the World

I have not figured out what the big deal about the eclipse is but can admit it brings up this weird dread in me. I think that a little too much time in apocalypse/rapture oriented parts of society has made these things ominous in my mind. I do vaguely remember watching one through the curtains at a motel with my mom but have discovered that many of our memories can be completely misleading. I will have to ask her about it.

As always, thank you for taking the time to read. I hope your week starts off and stays great.
