Well the reason for this is simple, I woke up early and realized I had over 2 and a half hours to kill before I had to be in the office for our morning sales meeting...hence the post.
So what has been on my mind recently?
Well in all actuality not too much, it's been pretty blah but why...is it the cold weather? maybe, is it the fact that the New England Patriots didn't make it to Superbowl 41? maybe, or is it that I have just been swamped that I haven't had a chance to sit down and think about something meaningful to type? getting warmer, or is it that the manitoba political landscape has become relatively dry and it would be nice for things to heat up? bingo!
So here we are, on a cold Monday morning in February, the Colts have finally removed the proverbial monkey off Dungy and Manning's back and now we can get on with life.
However, let's confirm a few things before the work week starts, let's be certain that the face slap is not the new fist pound, and while playing Rock, Paper and Scissors we do not actually use the items.
Let's lay it on the line here for a moment:
I am a 25 year old male, who works and lives in Manitoba, I have two years of University left, that I pick away at like a fat kid does to a pile of steamed greens and I am relatively content with what I have in life...or am I?
It's hard to say really, I love my job, I love the people who are around me and I am content in knowing that for now I am relatively secure...however on my 25th birthday I realized that their was more I could do, that I had more potential, yet I found I was somewhere that didn't want to cultivate that potential, moreso all it did was promote mediocrity.
That somewhere is Manitoba...now before you start screaming at me, I love Manitoba, I was born here, raised here and will probably retire here...however, in the middle of it all their isn't much to do here...except go to school and hope for that Government Job!
So what is someone like me to do?
Simple, finish school, like a fat kid would finish a smartie, move away and return here to retire...
But in reality, what is the benefit to moving away...doesn't Manitoba have a growing economy (NO), doesn't Manitoba have countless opportunities for youth (NO), what about being a great place to invest in my future and a future for my future family? (NO).
But I guess if I want to retire it's gonna be a pretty decent place.
Have a great week everyone.
