    Every day I am slightly amazed that I get to live in a town I love with a person I love in a place I love.

    Whether or not it's the proper reason to feel grateful a lot of the time, I constantly assume some sort of horribly tragic event will be happening in my near future, and that I should be grateful for everything I have around me at any given time. Be it my wife and our cats and our cozy apartment, or the wonders of technology and how we're able to communicate and share stories with one another, or how I can walk less than a mile and drink a mass-produced beverage of any variety that will taste probably the same for me as it would a king.

    I just picture myself holding a wallet-sized photo of my wife over a fire barrel while wearing fingerless gloves, and someone's like "remember robo-callers? god i miss robo-callers. who'd have thought they'd have turned us into this?" and the robo-plagued-wasteland goes on over the bridge we're huddled under.

    I'm grateful for many things:

    • Warm showers
    • Siblings and a loving family
    • Dog
    • Friends
    • an awesome PC
    • All the things I find enjoyment in (programming, linux, game development, computers, tech, books, etc.)

    I think it's always good to remind yourself the things you have in life.

    I'm grateful for my health. There are people out there who are paralyzed or deaf or handicapped in some way, and I only have to worry about wearing glasses! I'll probably have to get laser eye surgery in the future, but that's nothing compared to some of the struggles that disabled people have.
