Day 26: “You’ve neva heard of…the Milenium…FALcon…”

Write about an area in your life you’d like to improve.

No matter how old you get, it’s always good to constantly make improvements to your life and work on yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. I have also heard that once you reach my age, your ways are pretty set so don’t even bother. I don’t think it’s impossible, but it’s definitely more difficult to course correct. Your body can’t process Funyuns as efficiently as it used to, joints you didn’t know existed start to randomly ache, your subconscious is not as easily swayed by inspirational posters and quotes (that “Hang in There” cat probably died long ago, I’M JUST KEEPING IT REAL), and your emotional reflex of avoiding human interaction in favor of Netflix is well established.

For me, I’m always trying to improve my skillset with regards to my career. I can no longer rely on the mentality our parents had, where after graduating high school or college, that first job can support all hopes and dreams. Especially in my industry, things move so fast that if I am not constantly learning not just new things but the correct new things, I quickly become obsolete. If I can master the ability to quickly learn new things, I can apply it to all other areas of my life, and I will finally be able to master a decent Christopher Walken impression.
