Numero Uno

They say a good start is half the battle.  I woke up in the middle of the night today to giant stomach cramps.  It was a battle and a half to try to fall back asleep, but I emerged victorious.  David one (and a half), stomach zero (interestingly, I’m kind of hungry right now).

I find the title appropriate for many reasons.  I’ll explain why it’s in Italian in a moment.  Today is the first day of classes for my fourth year in Queen’s Commerce.  Paradoxically, this is a year of beginnings, even though it’s the end of my 4-year degree.  I say that because it’s the beginning of routine again after a year of running my own business.  It is the beginning of a year where I am applying to full-time job positions.  It is the ramp up to what may be considered the first leg of my professional career.

When I worked out yesterday (oh yes, it’s the beginning of doing that regularly too), my Blackberry shuffle played a song called “Everyone is number one”.  Later in the evening, my Italian housemate and her friends played a very catchy YouTube video called Numero Uno.

The themes are similar (and obvious) – to be number one.  So today I will say, as the first blog post and on a day of many beginnings, that I will strive to be number one in whatever realm I choose.  Let this be a contract to myself as witnessed by you.
