I finished graduate school last week. That was fulfilling.
I got married last weekend. That was memorable.
We took our honeymoon vacation this past week. That was amazing.
Now those moments are in the past. I start something new on Monday, and expect to have very, very little free time over the next few months. Enough to briefly scan the web for news from Latrobe, and enough to watch my team's pre-season games (yeah, NFL Network); it's not really football, but the process of player evaluation is interesting in its own right.
But there's only one moment really circled on my mental calendar now. Noon (CDT) six weeks and (less than) two days from now, at the Dark Horse Tap & Grill, watching the opening kickoff from Heinz Field in the company of a cold Arn and the Steelers faithful. At the moment I don't even care how the year goes, although I know I will feel very very differently when that moment arrives. I just want to be there.
