I am planning to retire about mid 2014 if all plans go as expected. After that I hope to continue working at something that I would normally consider a hobby. - Not sure what this will be yet, but I am looking at opportunities.

“Stop wasting so much energy hating your body; it makes you weaker.
Everything good in your life begins from the moment you begin accepting, understanding, respecting, and loving your true self.”
