Hi all. ALL. You. Everyone here. I’ve got something to share.
I’ve realized I’m not satisfied with a normal life in New York city. (I know, normal life? What the hell is that?) I’m going to make a change — here it comes — for the rest of myyyyy liiiiiiiiife. (starts dancing) /It’s gonna feel real good, SHAMONE/ - channnnnnnnge.
Alright brain, cut the MJ.
I’m not satisfied with my life in New York city, and so I’m going to change it. Right now I’m in the wishy washy heaven of ideas and potential, but soon — say, six months to a year — I will have ironed things out to become real, solid goals and actions. Instead of repeating myself (which is fun, but I’m writing this at a job that pays well), I’ll start off with an email to a group I lovingly call the RatPack. We’re a group of testers stationed around the world, and all of them, thankfully, have bright faces and beautiful couches. These guys rock my world. So here goes.

Hi all. I feel like we haven’t talked in awhile. I want to give you my update, and tell you this crazy plan I have.
First, girls. There are things going on, but I’ve realized all the girls I’ve spent my time with have been crap. Lots of time and money and energy for little pay off (giggety giggety — what I mean is, sex. No. That’s not what I meant. What I mean is, a close personal relationship — not there.)
Second, Corkboard. Things are going well. I have big plans which should cause major growth in 2012. If I can pull it off, the early part of 2012.
Third, the crazy plan. I’m unsatisfied. I’m unsatisfied with life as it is now, and I’ve realized that now more than ever do I want to see the world and be the master of my own devices. I want to travel. I want to work for myself. I want to spend time in each of your respective countries and hang out on your couch a bit. No better time than the present.
So the plan is this:
1) Save money, which I’m completely able to do since I switched jobs back in November. newjob = $++;
2) Get Corkboard to grow. It’s currently making $<deleted> a month. I can double that, if not more.
3) At the right time, likely in six months to a year, travel, couch surf, work for myself full time and at the end of it have a sustainable business that will support me. I’ll be making way less $ than in step #1, but I’ll get so much greater fulfillment on my own.
That’s the plan. I wanted to verbalize it to get it on record that A) I will be doing this, and B) I love your faces (and your couches). I will be coming to a country near you.
That is all. Tim, out.
This has become my goal. It feels right.
