Today is the day that I accept the financial risks of working for myself and take a real stab at making it work.
Today is the day I can begin concentrating on my ASP.NET book so that it's finished on time and doesn't suck.
Today is the day that a job and The Man no longer place constraints on me that keep me from doing what I really want to do in terms of professional development, personal time, diet and exercise.
Today is the day that even my “hobby” sites can be something that is better than the rest because I can devote proper time to it.
Today is the day where I don't have to dread Monday, because Monday I'll be working on my own terms.
Today is a glorious day.
