Despite all my father’s warnings that if I didn’t straighten up, I wouldn’t live to see it, my thirtieth birthday is just twenty days away. I’ve done some really stupid shit in 30 years. Don’t dismiss that; I mean some really stupid shit. In contrast I’ve also done some really great things. So instead of moping about and lamenting my thirtieth birthday let me instead recount the top 5 worst and best things I’ve done with my brief amount of time on this planet.
Disclaimer: All these things happened before I was 25. I’ve since grown up.

After a couple months of uncertainty, financial disaster, and anxiety, I’ve finally found what I was holding out for. It’s a damn good thing too because it’s really difficult to be principled when you don’t have any food in your cabinets.

I’ve lived in Florida for the last 20 years of my life and I can say without reservation that it is a dreadful place to call home. Well, for me anyway. If you’re not a fan of 80+% humidity, swamps, alligators, West Nile Virus, or absurdly high car insurance rates, don’t ever go to Florida. In December of 2012 I’d had enough – I had just been let go from the best job I ever had and I was pissed off. I was tired of the weather, I was tired of the people, I was tired of the lack of things to do outside other than getting drunk and eating, and now I didn’t have a job. The time was ripe to finally make my escape, and I did.

My life is complicated. That is to say, I have a lot going on. I’m writing a book, I have a weekly podcast, I have four twitter accounts, nearly a dozen websites, I write for a world news collaborative, I’ve written a book which I’m always promoting, I have a technology blog, I run a company that designs websites, and I’m conducting and experiment called “The Career Project”. It’s too much … it’s time to simplify.
