Last weekend was a busy one for me, boys and girls. In fact, the entire month of November has been busy for me, but that’s another story. It all started when my good friend and podcast host Wade gave me his three day pass to Austin Comic Con, since he would have to work over the weekend (everyone shed tears of sadness for Wade). I thought, “Awesome! A free pass to a comic convention! I don’t even have to pay for a hotel room!”
I had one of those interesting maturity moments this week. I’m sure we’ve all had them (except Wade, whom I am going to start calling the gay Peter Pan). My work has implimented a 401(k) plan. We had a meeting on Tuesday with the representatives from… whatever company we’re going to be using. It was an odd feeling, sitting there, 26, thinking about planning for retirement in some 40+ years. It’s taken forever to get to 26, the years seem to crawl by, and I can barely picture myself at 30, much less at 65. Yet all around me lie the tell-tale signs of age.
