365 Days

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year in the life?

Rent - Seasons of Love


525600 min. = 1 year
16819200 min. = 32 years


Is that right?


Today, one year from now, I will be retired from my job at NIC.  At that point I will have worked 33 years or 16819200 minutes.  It doesn't seem possible or actually doesn't seem that long.  Have I loved every minute of it? Yes! Has it been hard this last year? Yes! Was it always the best job ever? No, There were five years of frustrations and lies. Did it change and become good again? Yes. Would I do it all again? Definitely.
