Yeah, I never imagined even 1 year ago that I’d be here today! Today is Ajith’s birthday (he turns 33 – Happy birthday!) He took a bike ride this weekend in Eastern WA, so I thought this birthday cake image was appropriate!Today’s always a day when not only do I celebrate with him but I reflect a lot about where I was the year before. We’ve known each other about 6 years now and I’ve spent probably 3 of his birthdays with him. Three years ago on his 30th birthday I was in Renton, WA after having just interviewed for my job. I remember calling him while his “party” (which consisted of a gathering of people watching the candidates for President debate on TV) was going on and telling him the news that I got the job. I was so ecstatic, and it was a matter of a couple weeks later (if that) he got offered his job at T-Mobile. Other birthdays of his I seem to be traveling though I don’t remember where.
It’s fun to look back to remember where you were one year ago, and also to think about where you’ll be one year from today. Heck, I don’t even know what I’ll be doing even 4 months from now!
Either way, one of Ajith’s dreams this year is to get a new job and possibly move out of Seattle also. I am confident that’ll happen just a matter of time. I wonder where he’ll be in one year from now?
