I can't believe I am going to be 40. I just don't feel like it. Is my life half way over? Not even close. I feel like I have just started. Like I am waking up from a long nap. I want to tell kids to LISTEN to your parents. Go to school, get an education, don't party too much, stick with things and if you say you are going to do something... freakin' DO IT! If you have a chance to travel, GO. Get your passport and get as many stamps in it as you can! Backpack through Europe, ride the trains, go to Mexico, climb the Andes in Peru.... If you are working and living at home, save every dime you can... be frugal and smart with money. Don't use credit unless you can pay it off every month. Buy good quality things and take care of them so they last! There are so many things that our parents told us... things we should have listened to, done and taken full advantage of them.
Anyhow, I feel like I really have another chance to start my life over and to do the things I really want to. Once I get a job I can start moving forward again. I want to work til I collapse. Make sure I have plenty of savings and life insurance.. Get on a boat, plane or train.. and get going. Take Steven's hand and vanish.
