My Own Mid-Life Crisis

If I’m honest, I’ve had my own mid-life crisis. It just didn’t involve a $50,000 car, a divorce and a new 20 year old girlfriend.

In the last two years or so, I’ve become restless with myself and I wanted to do some things I had never done before.

First, I became a gun advocate and then a gun owner. I have two 9mm handguns which I enjoy shooting. I’ve recently tried a .45 and a .40 and I think I’ll be trading up as soon as I can.

Second, since I needed a new car anyway, my current vehicle is a manual transmission. It’s more work, but it’s much more enjoyable. Before getting a manual, I never truly appreciated the convenience of an automatic. After getting a manual, I now realize how much fun it is to drive a car.

Third, I bought a Zippo and other convenient fire-making tools. I just think that it’s a good thing to have multiple resources for making fire should the situation arise

Fourth, I bought a really good knife. Everyone should have a really good knife.

Fifth, I finally took the plunge and bought a really good Blu-ray player for my home theater.

That’s about it for now. I’m sure that it’ll continue at this boring pace for a few more years.
