Now I am 30, Japan-time at least. My twenties are over, and I think it is time to summarize the last decade. I don't know what we are expected to achieve in our twenties. I read somewhere that F. Scott (I think) said that if a man (or woman I presume) hasn't done something great by the age of 25, he (she) will never do anything great. I don't know about that, and I don't think I achieved much of anything, but this is what I did:

I had 10 birthdays. I lived in 4 countries. I moved 11 times. I travelled to 15 countries I hadn't been to prior to my 20th birthday. I slept with X women. I loved a few. I married 1. I divorced 1. I had 7 jobs. I learned 2 new languages. I went to 6 weddings (only). I got 211 university credits (Swedish system). I read.....well, a whole heap of books (I think I learned a few things). I got drunk innumerable times. I played in 5 football teams. I got 1 conviction in court. I don't know how much money I made, but I spent most of it, without having any material possesions to show for it. I read 4 Russian novels. I started 1 blog. I made many friends, I lost many too.

That's all I can think of. Maybe in my thirties I'll achieve something.

Yeah Yeah Yeah

I am lazy and I know it.

I've been working like an idiot.

I made my DJing debut (haha). It's true. Not many people witnessed it, but there'll be more people next time. Me, Luke, and Dave (Aussies), play indie stuff at a small club in Shibuya. We'll be doing it once a month.

A student gave me an I-pod Nano (for no reason, I think). Crazy, but great. I put it on shuffle on the train today. Great rock exploded into my brain. I had to restrain myself, so as not to jump up and dance on the train.

I watched Motorcycle Diaries and decided I want to be a revolutionary. A romantic one, but I don't want to die and I hate guns. It's all peace love for me.

Tomorrow I will work for twelve hours.

I don't have time to think, which is probably good. Saves me from unhappy thoughts.

I hope all is well with all of you.

(I will write something more interesting some day. Have faith!)
