The worst thing is that these are things mostly outside of my control, and I've gone a long way in trying not to let such things bother me.
I guess the interesting twist is that I'm starting to care about stuff again, the way I did in college. You know, causes, crusades, taking a stand in things. It's not that I ever stopped caring as much as too many other things were keeping me down (like The Man). Yet another interesting development in the realm of self-employment. Who knew looking out for Number One would end up benefiting everyone else?
