Vacations are great but life goes on...

Well, the vacation is over and I am back to work. It sucks, getting back into the routine of things is really tough.

I am very happy that I managed to procrastinate the hell out of these two weeks. I will shamelessly admit that I did exactly squat. I am way behind on my emails, I am way behind school work, although I did manage to put in couple of hours for that.

I've turned 33 today and my birthdays always make me look philosophically on life. The idea is very simple. I was always the youngest in my family, my brother is four and half older and my cousin (who I always thought of as a second brother with all of us growing up pretty close) is a year older than me. If I am already catching up to my mid thirties, how tough is it for them being ahead.

Being the selfish bastard that I am, this thought always brings a "Holy Crap!" first, and then a relieved sigh, that they are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay older than I am :)

Thanks everyone!

Ilyuha, My birthday is about making ME feel good ;)

On yours I will surely make you feel better at my own expense.

Hey, Jason.

You still did it on the 5th. That counts! :)
