At least you now can understand why I am angry and bitter.....been beaten down by life.

Huh, I thought you just needed more fiber

I think when you get to your mid-to-late-thirties, you reach a decision point where you have to choose between becoming an old fogey or a dirty old man. I chose the old fogey.

(I'm probably in the minority here)

I chose immortal immaturity.

So what I take away from this thread is that I shouldn't have kids.

Im 22 and it feels like I was 17 yesterday. All the freshmen I went to high school with have graduated and are well into college. My 19 yr old brother is married. I have served 5 yrs in the Army and I am on my third deployment. I have a son on the way July 6th. WTF happened???

I can hear Bob Dylan singing that the times, they are a changin.

Man, oh man.. I just turned 26 and it's hit me. I finally came out of my shell around 22.. at 23, I thought I leaped ahead years in just that year... at 24, wow, I reconsidered that I really broke out of my shell at this age... then 25 hit.. looking back at 22, I still didn't get it and 25 was really a jumping off point..

(don't really know how to explain the shell thing unless you just get what I mean.. things just started clicking and making more sense in a way my late teens and early 20's couldn't even relate)

I just hit 26 and my perspective has changed again, light years from when I was just a kid.. (I know, you old fogies think I'm still a kid.. I hear ya)

My awareness has changed quickly from I'll never die to I need to exercise more and start eating right.. My blood pressure was at 140/84.. not hoooorrible, but yeah, horrible. (job related, reason for the short stay)

wow, life.. I can ramble on and on about this topic.. almost feel compelled because it's so interesting how things change.. mentally. emotionally. (obviously, physically, losing hair, WTF!)

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man I put away childish things.

now, I haven't put away childish things.. I still like to stirr the pot to those who have no idea how to loosen up and enjoy life.. the ones who are soooooo uptight over "how things should be"..

but wow, I look at people in their late teens and early 20's and see myself.. a kid who has no idea about anything, just trying to piece everything together about the world the best I can... past paradigms creating my world and how I view it.. yet, those paradigms turned out to be infant.. (some probly still are, very hard headed)


a post of random thoughts all at once.. at that crossroads of life, so this stuff has been on my mind alot..

I'm sure there are at least a few here that think you shouldn't breed :sosp:

Real funny to hear the late 20's crowd talk about life change. Sad actually...i cant even remember my late 20's. And im about to have my 1st kid. It will either keep me young...or kill me.

If you've made it 5 yrs, then try to stay in for retirement at 20yrs.
