It is 4:45 AM on Sunday October 8th, 2017. It looks like I’m back to my routine of waking up very early again. I think the primary reason for this is that I got my morning workout in yesterday and was asleep by 8:00 PM.
It has been a long while since I wrote an LTMD. This is an article for my descendants to read when they are in high school decades from now.
I read an article yesterday on CNN called “The changing reasons why women cheat on their husbands” (Link) and thought I’d offer some advice.
I never had a girlfriend growing up and wasn’t successful in that department until junior/senior year of high school. After that I had no problems and wanted to give you some very good advice which I learned not only then but also through the past 20 years of, first dating, and then a successful marriage.
I finally watched the final installment of the Indiana Jones movie series. One of our friend’s little boys is really into Indiana Jones, he wears the hat and carries around a bag everyday. And so, I thought it would be time to introduce my own son to the series. It might have been a tad bit too early however since there is a lot of violence. The other thing is my son is much too young to understand any of the historical references and so had questions every five minutes.
It is 7:36 PM on Thursday October 5th, 2017.
I was reading Reddit today and came across an article about “death from overwork” in Japan. The comments were filled with people who also put in a lot of hours with some of them finally finding a 9-5 job. It made me realize how lucky I am to work from home. Today I also attended a travel fair which got me out of the house and made me realize how cocooned I have been for the past six years. Everyone at the event was so young and I was confronted with how quickly time passes.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth.” – Mark Twain
