Sent the obligatory "I will be leaving..." email out today. Had some really nice messages come back. Reading emails from people saying that they'll miss me is really sad. I briefly wondered if I was doing a smart thing.
Then I remember all the rubbish I've had to deal with here, how unbelivably excited I am to be coming to the states and the fact that I'm living the dream man!
I'm not subjecting myself to the "social norms" I belive the wonder of Ewan McGregor (actually the very talented writer but still its Ewans voice I hear that told us to Choose. I Choose Life baby! Maybe not in the same way as Renton. I'd rather avoid strange hallucinations of babies crawling across my ceiling (By the way if anyones not seen Trainspotting you must go and rent it immediatly!)
But yeah to sum up:
Choose doing something scary
Choose telling the boss to shove it
Choose making new friends
Choose taking a risk and giving your heart to someone
Choose laughing until it hurts.
And most of all Choose Life!
This is not a dress rehearsal - this is the real thing. So go and live it. It's never to late to start and its never to early to stop.
