    45 feels like a milestone, although I couldn’t tell you which milestone it is, aside from a vaguely significant number. At least, 45 seems more significant than 44, or even 46, with the next big number being 50. I’ve taken a couple days off to celebrate my birthday, and have a mini-staycation after a particularly…

    My 44th birthday was a good day

    Yesterday was my 44th birthday. 🎉 Great expectations I realised I felt a little internal pressure to do something amazing, wonderful, or remarkable. I just couldn’t think of anything.
