So I'm writing this as I watch game 5 of the Blackhawks vs. the Flyers for the Stanley Cup. So if I miss anything or sound like an idiot it is because of the fact that I am distracted.
I was thinking that if the Hawks pull this off I will have witnessed a championship from every major sports team in Chicago in my lifetime. But that matters little here today. What does matter is that I just saw Dustin Byfuglein destroy Chris Pronger in the corner!
Okay, now down to business. I was supposed to update my resume today. Well I did it. I don't really know what else to tell you.
I've got a pretty decent job with the Feds. I make a good living. I've got health insurance so I'm not really looking but I did it. I kept it down to a page. Figure that I need to highlight the job I have now (other than the Army my only real job.) and my college education. Done and done.
Then I started wondering about all those guys that don't have jobs. Ugh, quite depressing.
Then I started thinking about my career. I guess that's what you would call it. I looked over my resume and thought back a few years before I had this job.
And I realized that I was pretty pissed that the fire was gone. I know exactly what happened. I'm not hungry anymore, and I may just be getting old and both of these facts are infinitely depressing. I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about.
You get older, you manage to find a good job that pays you enough to live comfortably. You got your benefits, your retirement, or whatever it is, and these things become like a big security blanket and one day you look around and everything is so...blah.
Oh wonderful, I've managed to turn a little thing like updating my resume into something shitty.
Going through this I can't help but think of Fight Club, "the things you own end up owning you"
So, I'm going to have to think about this a bit more, and finish watching this damn game. More to come.
I love you Mom...
