It's been interesting. Sadly, I've not had as much to say here as I would have liked. I find myself typically putting what I'd say here into a Facebook post because I can do it from my phone instead of cracking open the 'puter.
I turned 30 two weeks ago. My best friend threw a Vegas themed party for me since I wasn't able to make it to Vegas this year like I had wanted too. Life got in the way.
Thoughts on 30. It doesn't feel like I expected, not that I'm sure what I expected. Honestly birthdays have not been a big deal to me for a while now. They're more just a way of marking another year on this rock. I feel like I've still got a lot of living to do, and maybe that I should have done more living in my 20s. Shrug.
I bought myself a new vehicle not long ago to replace the beat to hell Chevy Impala I've been driving for most of the last 11 years. It's nice having something that has a working radio, heater, and A/C. And it's nice having a truck. I picked up a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 4 door for those interested. I like it quite a lot. Having to finance it was not so fun, but I'll survive.
I've seriously neglected my shooting this last year. That's something I really plan on working on in 2015. I've got no excuse except sheer laziness. I shot a match a couple of weeks ago and got my ass handed to me. I need to do better. I still enjoy the hell out of it when I actually get out there and do it, so I need to.
I've been spending a lot of time at my favorite cigar shop. I've made a lot of friends there and it's nice to have a place I can find a regular card game. I've been playing in weekly poker tournaments for most of the last year now. That's been a lot of fun, and I've won a few.
2014 went quick, but I can't say it was a bad year. I was able to do a lot of things I've wanted to do for a long time and I'm glad I did. 2015 should be an even better year. I'm already planning a few road trips and looking forward to shooting IDPA regularly again.
There should be plenty of good times to come.
