Moving on...

Not that I'm going to make a habit out of posting only once a month, but I just thought I'd even things up. I'm symmetrical like that.

I'm moving out! And into my own place. Progression. It's what life's about.

I was having drinks with my buddy Jason the other week and we stumbled upon "What's the best way to live life?" I don't know how we came upon that subject but it's not surprising since we are nearing our mid-20's and life is constantly revolving around us and slapping us in the face. I answered Jason's question. I'm going to skip the slurring of words and the thorough, yet round-about explanation I gave him and paraphrase for you guys.

-I think our lives are all about progressing ourselves, and achieving what we want. It's about growing as an individual, as a person, and as a part of society as a whole. I think it should be our goal to grow as much as we can and better one's self throughout the rest of our lives. It's just a matter of how you do it. I think it's a problem when we get too comfortable with how life is lived too. It means we've plateaued. I've said it before and I'll say it again, but now I've got a handle on exactly what I mean by it. It's my criticism of the 9 to 5. There's nothing wrong with the 9 to 5, the day to day living. It's just lame when you stop progressing/growing as a person while you do it. I imagine myself, if I were to have a career, that BEYOND my day job, I'd be out learning, growing, being active, and bettering myself as a person with other activities. Basically, I'd still be progressing. I think that's what life is all about. We shouldn't get too comfortable in a rut. Get out, change it up, do something new. Keep growing.

I've grown comfortable living at home. Too comfortable. I still have an independent lifestyle, but I've had the luxury of having too many things done for me. I didn't like it and the comfort grew terribly uncomfortable. I plateaued. Plateaued fucking hard. So I made a change, and shook things up big time. I'm progressing again.

See you guys when I move into my new place.
