i hate growing up. i probably enjoyed it as a little kid, honestly i don't really remember, but it sucks. i predict the best part of my life being around 30. sit around the house, play with the kids, wife, friends, and no creeping imminent future. the world scares me; i want to take 5 people i really love and go to a desert island.

But . . .

But what if you don't have kids or a wife or a house at 30? What if you still see your future as creeping and imminent, the middle of your life fast approaching, the end of it trailing not too far behind? What if when you're 30 you think back to when you were 20 and wish you were still there?

I think the best way to live life is to embrace every moment. Because in the long run it seems that every moment is as scary or pleasant or fun as any other. It's just a matter of knowing what to pay attention to.

Re: But . . .

well the house isn't important. if i don't have a family though i will be quite disapointed. i could be wrong abou tthis, but i think once my life has some established permanence - family, long term job, that sort of thing - and not floating from school to this to that like it has so far, i think being settled will be comforting. on the other hand, maybe i will wish i was still 20 when i'm 30, i dunno. of course the best way is to embrace every moment, but i'm not able to be so sane
