I’m turning thirty-three years old next week.

I don’t feel any kind of way about it. At this point I just look at it as another year. I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet, but I’m sure I’ll find something or someone to get into.

Depending on how I feel I might treat myself to dinner and a movie. I’m off on my birthday and it falls on a weekday. With that said, anything I do will be during work hours to avoid traffic.

There are a few changes getting ready to take place in my life. In the spring I plan to sell my house. It should be around early June of 2019. I’ve decided that home ownership, while a source of great pride for me, is not something I want right now. I don’t want to be tied to a house which is a major responsibility. I want more mobility. I also hate my homeowners association.

I plan to rent a deluxe apartment in the sky….preferably on the marta line. Money won’t be an issue.

If all goes well I’ll be able to sell my place and pocket $40,000-$50,000, which is great considering the short time I’ve lived here. That’s $40,000-$50,000 of tax free money! I think next year is a good time to sell because I believe another recession is coming. I’m getting ready.

Next, I’m up for a promotion. I’m currently in the running for a job that will pay me $122,000 a year. If I get it I will be traveling all over the country for 280 days out of the year and I will be working all the time. This is one more reason to sell the house. No point in owning a home I won’t be in for most of the year.

Next, I’m going to figure out how to get my baby back. I’m talking about Sapphire. I asked her to marry me weeks ago. She said no because she felt I was settling for her. This is not true. I love her. I want her.

My goal is to make her see that. I don’t know what I got to do but I plan to get on bended knee with a ring I designed. Maybe I’ll break out in song and sing something like…

As you can see thirty-three is going to be an interesting year….and it hasn’t even got here yet.

Happy birthday to me!
