Personal goal: To accomplish everything that I intended to in my 20s, only in my 30s. I currently sing in two bands, have a couple of DJ nights, routinely paint and draw, date a gorgeous little woman, get my laundry done, have a horribly messy bedroom, watch too much tv, eat meat in excess, enjoy a drink or three, make the world laugh with me, and drop mad rhymes off tha dome. Still up: box a kangaroo(and win), see the Pittsburgh Steelers win several more Superbowls, become famous, buy the world a sandwich, get my driver’s license, and prove everyone wrong. All by the age of 40.
