Doing my taxes over the weekend, I was looking over things I need to report and had to open up my file cabinet stuffed with statements from all the years. I only open this cabinet around this time of year....
Digging through the cabinet, I stumbled across an old relic...My very first paycheck I earned as a full time engineer, from my very first job.. Lol....
....Then digging further, I found my first offer letter ...Qualcomm. Engineer (I)... Starting paying $38,500. With a "generous sign on bonus of $2,500....Then there was, the selling points of why I should live in San Diego...
I remember when I first started out, I bought this file cabinet from Staples in Mira Mesa, along with a white couch and twin bed from them Robinson May Company in UTC... The couch, bed, and file cabinet, went with me wherever i relocated...up to the bay area and back and forth..
In all, the file cabinet has been every place that I lived, accumulating more and more statements as the years progress
...Digging through one of the drawers this evening, I realized I have so much crap in this drawer....And then it hits me...
Holy Sh***... I'm almost 40....I've been working for almost 18 years... I'm old, dude......
