Out of the total of 4 votes I got, all of them said it would be cool to have an online journal, so here it is.
I’m off now to make dinner for the family. You know what we’re having tonight?
Burritos. No shit.
Even back then, I loved burritos (and called my very lame website Where’s My Burrito? because I also loved The Simpsons.)
I’ve come a long, long way in 12 years. I’ve gained a wife, adopted a son, written a whole bunch of books, traveled all over the world, created a web series, and somehow found a way to silence the twin Voices of Self Doubt And Prove To Everyone That Quitting Star Trek Wasn’t A Mistake.
I have been accompanied at every step of this journey by tens of thousands of people all over the globe who I will never meet in person, but still feel around me like Navi in Zelda … only instead of yelling “HEY HEY LISTEN” they’ve been yelling “HEY HEY DON’T GIVE UP”.
Thank you for reading and supporting all of my projects. I love my life, and every day I’m afraid I’m going to wake up from this amazing dream.
And so I never lose perspective, I’ll paraphrase Walt Disney: It was all started by a burrito.
