I turned 50 today. Yep, Elvis and I share the same birthday. I don’t feel 50. I still feel like I haven’t even settled into a career yet, like that is all still to come. I do feel like it’s time to start living out some dreams I’ve always had, like owning a decent sports car and traveling to places like Hawaii and Prague and so on.

I also need to get in better shape, or I won’t be feeling as well by the time I hit 60. It’s much harder to lose weight now than it used to be, but sadly much easier to gain it. Maybe I need another year-long stint at UPS. During the year I worked for them I lost 60 pounds. Who needs a gym membership when your job keeps you fit? There’s a reason you don’t see any overweight UPS drivers. 🙂
