You've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? [More:]

I do! I've got a job starting next week that's supposed to last at least a month. I'm finally graduating from college and my friends are coming, unasked, from all over to attend the ceremony. I feel the love.

I've got some really good friends, and a really good support system, and that includes YOU! So I've got to ask you, one more time, do you feel lucky?

P.S. This is my 500th post to MetaChat. Suckers!
Now I can flame out and close my account.

No flameouts allowed!

Lately, I've been feeling a little lucky, sure. It's an unusual feeling for me, but, dammit, the Big Things(tm) seem to be going well. Not ALL of them, but so many, it's hard not to assume that I'm living right.

Congrats on the job! Way to go on the graduation! Flame out, only if you must!

Right now things are cycling around pretty good, yeah.

Instead of flaming out, couldn't you just flame?

Yeah, just flame! Then even bullets won't stop you!

And congratulations on graduating college.

Are you kidding? I wake up every day astounded at how lucky I am.

I got my dream job, even better than the job i *applied* for, after losing my job at the start of the year.

I've been there for just over six months.

I start my new job on monday after having been given a promotion!

I officially have the worlds greatest friends (you guys included in that) and I get to drink the most delicious coffee in melbourne on the walk to work each day.

Also - I just had a big bowl of pho.

I have no idea what I did to deserve any of this, but I'm extraordinarily grateful every day for it all.

No, it was all preordained.

Congratulations Eideteker.

I feel so lucky that I don't like to talk about it since I feel embarrassed for my own good fortune.

Congrats, Eide!

I do feel lucky. I have a wonderful new house, a decently stable and extremely rewarding job, wonderful friends and companions, and enough money to at least get by. It's time, however, for me to help the luck along by getting back on track with some personal goals.

I feel very lucky to have met you.

And I know that your Macbook feels lucky to have survived that meetup!

Thanks for the reminder. I am feeling all sorts of bad lucky. But guess what! this too much stuff and too little time will pass. and then I will feel lucky again. I feel good lucky so much of the time, it kind of breaks the definition of luck. i have a friend who, rather than "If anyone can get it done, you can," says "If anyone can get it done, you have to." back to it!
