When I was 25 I was in my…

When I was 25, I was in my third job in as many years—all in the same area at a church, but the responsibilities were different each time. I was frustrated at the end of the third year because I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do next. I didn’t feel like I’d found my place yet. I met with my boss, who was in his 50s. I told him how anxious I was about finding the one perfect job for me, and quick. He asked me how old I was, and when I told him I was 25, he told me I couldn’t complain to him about finding the right job until I was 32. In his opinion, it takes about 10 years after college to find the right fit, and anyone who finds it earlier than that is just plain lucky. So use every bit of your 10 years: try things, take classes, start over.

I have three different, extremely interesting project/contracts going on simultaneously right now. I am very grateful and feel luck on my side at the moment, despite other circumstances.

I also have an extreme desire to give back, somehow.

More on all of this later. Got to get back to work.

GSP Torn ACL, Out For 10 Month, Nick Diaz To Face Carlos Condit For Interim Welterweight Title

(via Dana White’s Twitter account https://twitter.com/#!/danawhite/status/144475715390291968)

As with Nick Diaz vs. BJ Penn, I am sure that this will be a much more exciting fight leading up to and during the scrap. Diaz is a notorious and well-loved hot-head with incredible skills on the feet and ground. Carlos Condit is a powerful striker and potent grappler that likes to take risks in his fights. Neither fighter has ever been in a boring fight.

Sucks for George. Mentally, this has got to put a dent in his spirits. Hopefully he heals up and develops enough anger to put up a fiery fight against whomever wins this interim title.

My first instinct says Diaz has the advantage in most places, but Carlos is a crafty and extremely experienced veteran. I won’t be missing this fight for anything.

Texts From Bennett Is Run By The Same “Nerdy White Dude” Who Does Pancake Rap (Mac Lethal)

My mind is blow. With some primitive detective work done on a late night with whiskey by my side, I just learned that the new popular website Texts From Bennett (http://textsfrombennett.tumblr.com/) is owned and updated by the same dude who did the Youtube video to a rap beat about making pancakes (see bottom of post).

This is awesome for so many reasons. Mainly because this guy, known as Mac Lethal, is a respected rapper on the label Rhymesayers Entertainment and I’ve liked his music for a long time.

Okay everyone, back to what you were doing… pretend like you were up on this indie hip hop pop cultural knowledge 🙂
