Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions


Today makes me 25 years old. When I was around 18 I used to think that anyone above 25 was old. I mean I was revving up to get in to the software business, and there the young ruled, perhaps becuase the IT industry in Sri Lanka was very young. So I have this notion lobbed in my brain that when you reach 25, you are getting old or past your prime.

Do I feel any different? No, just a slightly depressed that another year has ticked away and I am not where I want to be.

Let me recap

1. Got Dream Girl? - nope, still very single

2. Got Dream marraige? - nope, see 1.

3. Got Dream car? Nope, dont have any car. See 5.

4. Got Dream Job? Ya! Ya!, I work with SPS doing consulting, pushing the envelope of what we can do with it and bringing about innovative solutions with it.  I am kind of a perfectionist, and if things have to work, they have to work the right way. Me happy in this criteria!

5. Got Dream Sallary? Nope, nah, not even close (think exploitation ;) )!

6. Got Dream game machine? Nope, but my game machine is good enough.

7. Got Dream house? Nope.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TARIQ!!!! Don't worry 25 is a milestone that always stings a little. I had a rough 25th bday but the year itself turned out to be amazing. Here's hoping the same happens for you.

Besides you forgot one: Got Lots of Friends From Around the World: You definitely nailed this down! I'll be raising a glass on your behalf tonight. :)

Have a good one buddy!

Many happy returns, what Colin said above and also ....

some of those are pretty much moving targets :) Like, when I graduated, I was thinking ... man, these guys pay me THIS MUCH to do what I really like ?!!! it took me a while to get jaded :)

I'm holding out for "life begins at 40" now ... see if that changes anything

Think back to who you were at 16 or 18. Is that who you are today? Imagine how much better you'll be at 30, 35 and up!! I thought I was great at 25 but compared to who I am at! I know, I know..all the "old" people say that but it's so true. I never dreamed I would be who I am and have the opportunities I've had in the past few years. It's just not time for you to meet the woman of your dreams yet or have the house, etc.

Keep the faith and know that it gets better and better with EVERY year!
