Behold! A Child Is Born!

Once upon a time in a land far away, a woman was in labor about to be blessed with child. This was not her first child so this was not a new experience for her. As she went through the different sensations that a woman undergoes when she is bringing life into the world little did she know that the different moons, stars and suns in the universe had aligned themselves into a new zodiac year. As the child came into the world welcomed by his new family, the universe blessed him with a pioneering, free spirit, intellect laced with impulsiveness. The Universe through a human vessel had brought the Acolyte back into the world once again!

Anyway cheeky origin stories aside, it's my birthday today! I am now one year older. The years go by so fast I must say. How is my life plan going? Other than starting my Master's 2 years late, I'm pretty much on schedule especially for the fact that waiting helped me get an Assistantship so I was able to zoom through it in a year and a half as opposing to having not gotten one; come earlier and having to work my ass off. So in terms of education I am more or less on schedule. I really don't see myself doing a PhD at this point in time, I'd rather focus on my career and finance this point in time. I am behind in the investments part of my life, I did expect to be much further but I do have some good plans in mind that I will put into motion as soon as I get my career on track this year. Relationships? You have been here most of the way during the last 2 years. Other than no kids and no intentions for marriage soon, I don't have any other plans in that arena.

Some Acolyte trivia for you...........

1. The Acolyte loves dogs
2. The Acolyte loves sleeping
3. The Acolyte loves reading interesting novels preferably fiction
4. The Acolyte can be rather sarcastic
5. The Acolyte has not turned 30 this year!
6. The Acolyte would like to make some reliable male friends this year with whom he can do activities with that don't involve alcohol and women.
7. The Acolyte plans to vacation in Kenya in 2008
8. The Acolyte plans to spend less time on-line
9. The Acolyte can't wait to move into his own place in the next few months so he can run do cartwheels, handstands and all the other eccentric things he loves to do in private
10. The Acolyte loves to refer to himself in third person and is gearing up to see what the next year of his life has to bring him. Remember people above all else....choose life!

Acolyte said...

@ aegues
I am not as advanced as people think I am!
As for the number 6 I think it's time for change, ppl can be rather shallow out here. I guess I'll wait for your ride in that case when I arrive.

Aizoh said...

Happy Birhday dude! Many happy returns.Heh heh. No.5... did you forget to type the word "yet" somewhere in that sentense? Welcome home next year. In the way of free things, and at the rate we are going, we will have moved from primary education to pints!
