This blog is five years old now. I took a look at some of the earliest posts, and I can't believe I wrote some of them five whole years ago, and can't believe that others were only five years ago. So that's about right.

I started this blog out of desperation at a time when I had a vague sense of where I wanted to get in the following five, but without much of a sense of how to do it. Five years later I've pretty much done it--I made it out of the house, got back to L.A., got to a really good law school, got through a really good law school, got a lucrative job, got back back to L.A., etc. etc. It hasn't all been peaches and cream, but typing this out is super-cathartic as I sit here in my beach apartment.

My biggest problem right now feels like a non-problem compared to all of this other stuff, but nonetheless it's what I'm wrestling with right now. For six years I've worked really hard to get to where I am at this moment; now that I'm here, what am I working for now?

In five more years, you'll probably have a wife, a house and a kid. You'll have been on two or three more excellent vacations. You'll know a lot more about law and will be moving along in your career. You'll be figure skating in the Olympics. Okay, not that last part. Dream big...again.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
