Rich v3.0

I’m really upset with myself that I don’t make the time to post here more often. Seems like when I do find the time, it’s only for a couple of minutes (not enough to go into details) or it’s late like now and I’m just plain tired. It’s quite a shame (for me that is) because I have so much going on right now and I want so bad to write about it. Oh well. Let’s see how long I can write before I get too tired.

I had this amazing dream the other night about waking up and finding myself about 4-5 years in my past. I know exactly how I thought up this dream, but that’s not important right now. In the dream, I wake up in my room back at my parent’s house. This was during a time that I like to call Richie v2.0.

I like to relate my life to computer software simply because that’s what makes sense to me. Richie v1.0 started from about the beginning of high school to about 2 years after high school graduation. Anytime before that were betas of what eventually became v1.0. Richie v1.0 was a time when I simply didn’t care much about anything. Major goof off time in school and at home. Getting into a lot of trouble left and right. Living with the parents. No responsibilities. No future.

Richie v2.0 starts where v1.0 left off and goes up to about 6 months ago. It was during this time when I was able to find my drive and inspiration. I met people that made me want to be a better person. I decided to get my ass to a real college and find a real career. Moved out on my own and took on a lot of responsibility. I grew up a lot personally and professionally. Towards the end of that time though (like any other piece of software), I became old, outdated, and eventually lost a lot of my self worth. I got sloppy and made a lot of mistakes. Time for another revision.

In pops beta stages for Rich v3.0. Notice the name update too. A little older. A little wiser. Still making some mistakes, but learning from those (and all of the past ones) a lot quicker now. On my way to a final version very soon. Not exactly sure where things will take me but I do know I’m going to stabilize some instabilities in my life. Overall a gigantic improvement over late stages of v2.0.

Talk about a tangent. I wanted to tell you about a dream I had. Instead, I go on about how my life is like software. Oh well. I’m tired now and I want to go to sleep, but I’ll make sure to come back soon and post about my dream. Until then, be good humans.
