Random ramblings from a 41 year old Australian living in Japan for the past 5 years.
No longer can I say “I’m 40″, now I have to say I’m in my 40′s. Think I will just refuse to answer from now on one of the typically rude Japanese questions on age, blood type etc.
My birthday is always a time of reflection for me and this year I draw the same conclusions. If I had my time again would I do anything different? is the question I always open with. The answer is no.
I keep promising myself to write a journal of my life, I think this year is the year I start. New Domain I guess, and only a select few will ever join the dots from the stories to the man.
I still feel if there is a God I will go straight to hell, probably as second in command, although I have met some of my competition and it will be a good match.
I was once told by a previous manager that one of my subordinates wouldn’t make it into a managers role. The reason was “You have to have a certain amount of c@nt in you. Paul you have the required amount of C@nt, he doesn’t”. That is still true today. Tap Tap, this one is broken!
The last year contained a few big changes in my life, learned from it? Yes.
This year will have some big changes. Risky? Yes. Young enough to recover? Definitely.
I haven’t been around my blog recently. Generally I had better things to do than bore the public with my life.
I have met some people on various social networking sites that I would call friends, even though I have never met them in person. Working on that though.
I’ve pissed a few people off and been banned from my share of forums… I stand by my words… Ignorant, Psychopathic, Fucktards.
On Technology and Toys: Got a bike, got a new EeeBox PC, Love hate my iPhone still, Still Snowboarding most weekends.
On Health: 83kg’s, great health report except the midriff.
Still loving Japan and what it has to offer.
The special girl in my life still rocks.
Do I miss Australia? Yes. Would I miss Japan? Yes.
Favorite place to live? Japan. Favorite place to Holiday? Not Japan.
Work: Still employed as Software/CAD Engineer.
Guess thats all I can be bothered sharing for now.
