It's getting old.

What exactly? Working over the weekends. I've had to work over the past 3 weekends and I could use a break.

I probably shouldn't complain. I'm lucky to even have a job, especially one that I love, given where things are these days.

You know, I really do miss being a kid. I miss being oblivious to the troubles of the world. I miss having my biggest worry be uncontrollable feelings and broken toys. Those were the days. Life seemed so complicated then, but I guess it takes perspective to realize how simple it really was.

Don't get me wrong, there's plenty in my life that I'm happy about. I appreciate the fact that I have a wonderful wife who loves me. I'm grateful to have a wonderful line of work. I'm thankful that I have self-confidence, and self-worth – both of which I lacked as a young teen.

But, sometimes, I just long for the days, when life was... simple.

Battlestar, Please Don't Go...

It's sad to think that one of my favorite shows, of all time, has only three remaining episodes. It's always impossible to explain how fantastic Battlestar Galactica is to anyone who hasn't seen it, but take my word for it – it's some of the best TV, ever.

I'd put it right up there with The Sopranos, The Wire, and a bunch of other amazing TV.

As the series winds to a close, I find myself wondering, what will I do with that additional hour of my life? Probably waste it on blog posts. :P

Amazing. Nothing in 2008!

OK. That was uncharacteristically bad, even for me. Not a SINGLE post in all of 2008? Wow. I'm going to have to go back through my travels and write something in 2008 :)

I'm back.

In an effort to return to my "roots", I've decided to try and get this whole blog thing going again. I haven't done it in quite some time. Truth is, I got lazy. It's work, and the last thing I want to do AFTER work is more work.

Well, nowadays, maybe this kind of work ain't so bad. I write stuff all day long for work, but I don't enjoy it as much as I do when I blab about inconsequential things in my life.

In an effort to finish what I started, I've been going back and completing a bunch of entries that I kept as drafts during our honeymoon. It's been great to go back, look at those photos, and remember all the exquisite detail of that trip. 

Alin and I long to travel. We love doing it so much and yet we never have time. There's a saying someone once said to me, and I find it so true... "Life is what happens in between vacation." It seems like we're always planning the next one. 

Where shall we go next? Any suggestions anyone?
