Wow. It's amazing how much can change in one year. This time last year I was living in Chicago, a Senior Designer for Playboy with a steady paycheck, working on paying off my credit cards, planning on moving to Los Angeles. Other than getting rich and changing the world (the same as always) I had few other plans. Caryn had a sweet job at a Gallery out in L.A., was quiting a Museum job she hated to spend the last few months working for a Gallery she loved. I hadn't skated in years and was dreaming out the days when I ran my own record company and did whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. I was also listening to a lot of Bad Brains.
And today, here I am in Los Angeles. Working freelance. No steady paycheck, but a hell of a lot more freedom. Plotting the take over in moreways than one. Starting a magazine. Running an art auction / publishing company. Drinking a lot of coffee. Last week I sent in the final check to bring all my credit card debth down to zero, and Charged dinner tonight. Caryn's sweet Gallery job isn't exactly that. She's plotting too. I'm skating when ever I can. I suck just as bad as I did in High School, but I'm having a lot more fun. That, and listening to a lot of Bad Brains.
I'm not sure what I'm getting at. I guess I never really am. It's just funny how things change. Some that you plan for, some that you don't. They aren't always for the best, and not always for the worst. I think it's just a matter of figuring out the best thing to do with that is in front of you...
