You Must Change Your Life

Yesterday I bought two domain names. I bought forwarding for one of them to the other. I signed up for another monthly bill: web hosting at Laughing Squid, which has a great reputation and a "starving artists" discount.

I am embarking on something. I am so excited. I do not know, quite, how all of these things are going to get paid for, and the extra monthly bill is not in my budget. But. I have money in the bank, and there comes a time when you can't any more not do the thing that is pressing out of you from inside, somewhere inside the rib cage and the spinal column, jerking you upright on the subway.

You must change your life. And this is why I've saved hard for the last year and a half, so that when I want to do something like I want to do this thing that I've begun to do for real, I can do it.

I can't tell you how excited this post made me! Just the thought that one actually can make changes in life... I kind of feel like life is just happening to me sometimes. Good reminder.

(And, like everyone else, dying to know what you're working on!)

Congratulations and good luck! :)

I always thought your profile sounded just like my best friend ('06 grad, English major, NYC, etc.) now the Rilke poem confirms it. :P I just wish she was as good with money as you are...
