A quarter of a century

So today is my birthday (1/27), and I have spent the majority of it within the confines of a studio. Working on your birthday is kind of a pain, but that’s life. Some people might say “oh, it’s my birthday, I think I’ll take off” – but you won’t really get anywhere in life like that. I mean, I worked on Thanksgiving Day (and the day before/after), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day – so my birthday is just another day that a job needs to get done, and I’m the one to do it. I guess you can call it…dedication.

So I’ve been on this earth for 25 years, and accomplished a lot. However, I still have a lot of things on my bucket list, and still a few things I’d like to get off the ground. When I reach a quarter of a century + 1, who knows where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing.

I’d still like to write a bit more than I am now (which is basically not at all). I also have a few other things I want to accomplish or see accomplished in the next quarter of a century of my life. Here are the top 10 (in no order):

1. I’d like to see Alabama win at least three more football national championships (the amount they’ve won in my first 25 years of existence – 1992, 2009, 2011)

2. Start a successful media company.

3. I want to write a published book.

4. I want to go to the Super Bowl.

5. I want to go to the The Masters.

6. I want to go to Japan.

7. I want to go to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Yas Island.

8. Visit every continent (already been to Asia so Japan/UAE don’t count, still need Africa, South America, Australia, Antarctica).

9. See an opera at the Sydney Opera House.

10. Attend a heavyweight title boxing match (big fancy coat and top hat optional).
