It's 30 minutes past my 32nd birthday. By all my previous estimates on how my life would turn out, I'm now officially in uncharted territory. There is no new gameplan; the old one still stands, it's just delayed by a couple of years.

In some aspects, I'm living the life I always dreamed. This was the direction I always wanted to sail in. But I'm also wary of the turbulence ahead that could wreck the ship. Either way, there isn't going to be any course correction.

I'm happy that the ideas and conclusions teenage me had developed have stood the test of time. Take travel for instance. I had always wanted to see so many places around the globe but without actually going there. Now I enjoy 4K streams of trains in Norway, and walking tours of various other places.
