Well, there goes another year. Today, I’m 38.
It’s been an interesting year in many ways. Starting a band, gigging original material, making new friends and a very busy year at work.
I’m older, yes that’s true, but do I feel it? To be honest, no. I can honestly say I don’t feel any different now to when I was 28. I’m a bit more ‘mature’ and I feel I appreciate things a little more, but I certainly don’t feel like I’m nearly 40.
I’m leaving my current employer as I feel it’s time for me to spread my wings a little and develop my career, something I don’t feel I could do at my current job.
I’ve neglected my family and friends, including Jessie (my wife) and Stevie (my dog) and the many synth geeks out there whom I consider friends.
And the new band is going from strength to strength but again, I’ve neglected my song writing and guitar practicing for far too long.
The new job offers more regular hours and a lot less travel, so hopefully I can correct all these things and spend more time on the things that are important to me.
