I have started to wonder that lately. When did it happen? When did we jump from carefree, fun-lovin', living for the moment youth? When did we start to worry about our careers and money? When did we have to think about health care benefits and how we are going to buy a house or get married? When did these all become legitimate concerns in our daily lives?
I hate that I am now an adult. And I think it JUST happened. It really did feel like an overnight switch. I woke up one morning and my youth was dead. (Although, my youth did have a wonderful wake this past January)
We are now surrounded with "Be responsible. You have a job you might like, but will pay you more - stick with it." Forget that! I want to do the things that I LOVE!! So I crash and burn, at least I will wake up 10 years from now and realize that I gave it my all.
I have always thought that saying "You regret the things you don't do in life, not the things you do" is totally true! I don't regret buying those fabulous shoes, but let me tell ya' there is still regret about not buying a shirt five years ago. (I am a shallow puddle)
So that is my little rant for the day. Sometimes this shit just builds up and I need to vent. If you don't like it, well, stop reading this. Ok, no don't. I really like the blog counter going up.
P.S. I think I did CONSIDERABLY better in my fantasy league this week. YAY ME!!
