30 Sucks So Far
This is my awesome birthday party summed up. I had a really great time, my wife invited a million people, I sang Neil Diamond, and my precious friend Joe sang the worst version of Self-Esteem by The Offspring I have ever heard. It was probably the fun-nest night I have ever had, besides my wedding night, but we won't talk about that. I ate at New Peking, the best Chinese ever, then went to bed at about 5 AM. It was cool, then there was my real birthday which isn't over yet, but isn't looking so good. I do not like being 30 from the get go. I woke up at 7 AM and watched the sun rise, then spent a couple hours at the DMV so that I can drive, which doesn't make sense to me because who wants to spend their birthday standing in a crappy, long line. Then I was made aware that my tattoo artist is out for a couple of days, so I ate again and again. Who know maybe the night has greater things in store for me, but no matter what happens, I am still 30 today and I do not feel like it.
I'm a simple person to figure out. I usually write it all down here. I try not to pretend to be anything. I am what I am and that's good enough until it's not anymore. I want my kids to remember me smiling when I'm gone. Integrity is the very basis of a good life. I love my God, my wife, my kids, my friends, and I try to love all of the rest of you.
