One Last Post

So. I’m headed out tomorrow. Work is finished, bags are packed, and flights are arranged.

When I land in Louisville Saturday night, I have no plan for myself. No clue what I’ll be doing. Another January has arrived, and the funny thing is, I’m right back where I started one year ago: moving home from Central America, planless. :)

There’s a slight difference though. You might not see it, but I can feel it. Last January, being planless felt like falling into some dark abyss. I was bitter about coming back, options seemed nonexistent, and I felt like things were out of my control.

This time around, I’m energized about coming back. I have options -- very, very few (realistically, I'll be lucky if I get a paying job by June) -- but options nonetheless. I feel in control of the planless-ness. This time, it's less of an abyss and more of a....hmm...a wide open plain. :)

Oh, and there's one more thing.

I've decided this will be my last blog entry. At least for a while. At least here on You Only Live Once. Two years is a long time, and we've had a great run. In fact, I've had more site visitors this month than in the entire history of the blog -- thanks, everyone! It might seem counterintuitive to then stop the blogging now, but I think it's time. I promise that when I decide to start blogging again, wherever that may be, I'll let you know.

Until then, Happy New Year. Here's to new plans, new successes, new failures, new adventures, new ideas, new risks, new priorities, new fun, new memories, and new beginnings. I just have this feeling...that it's gonna be a great 2012. :)
