Thirty

Wednesday, August 20, 2008
Thirty years ago, today, I was born in a small apartment in downtown Portland. After that traumatic experience I started taking on more and more responsibilities for myself. I am now (statistically speaking) about 40% of the way through my life.

Here are some things I've done in the last 30 years (not in chronological order):
  • Learned to walk
  • Learned to read
  • Learned to do calculus
  • Graduated from high school
  • Graduated from college
  • Graduated from grad school
  • Got married
  • Got divorced
  • Learned to ride a motorcycle
  • Rode a motorcycle up and down the west coast
  • Started teaching motorcycle courses
  • Beat Super Mario Land
  • Beat Super Mario World
  • Beat Super Mario 64
  • Tried to find a job in two economic recessions
  • Lived in Portland
  • Lived in Salem
  • Lived in Eugene
The list goes on (and on, and on) but I guess what will be exciting is not what I've done but what I will do in the next thirty years. My head is full of dreams; we'll see if I can make them a reality.
