    I'm just looking forward to getting older. I know that most people feel bad for every year they get older, but I just feel better.

    I don't necessarily feel bad about getting older, I just sort of start looking back at all I wanted to have accomplished by this time and get irritated more than anything

    Ah. I don't even bother wasting my energy on that. The things that I want to happen will happen. Whether its when I'm 40, 50 or 60. You know?

    When you look back on your life, it's kind of amazing how you ended up in places or situations where you never imagined you would ever be. Sometimes that's a good thing and sometimes it isn't. Getting older is full of surprises...lol.

    Absolutely! If I'd have done everything that I initially planned to, I wouldn't be where I am today, and I wouldn't change that for the world.

    There are 2 things I'm still upset about. One is not being able to get into the military, and the other is that I had wanted to move back to Germany by now, and I haven't

    Ohhh I see. Yup I’m on the >too old to mention club!

    Think about it this way things may not be going as you planned but that’s ok life rarely cooperates. Instead shift your focus and realign you goals you could have a much better path out there, you never know.

    I try to live by a no regrets kind of principle. Have I done things I’m not proud of, Hell yeah, have I hurt people, yup BUT Ive also done great things, raised good humans and grown from all of my experiences, that’s life. All the things I’ve done good or bad made me who I am today, and that’s a better person. But that’s me, not all people believe or follow in the same principle and that’s cool. We all go though life differently. Just gotta find your path. Hell Im still a work in progress. Lol!

    right now, my path is to get my license and a car, and either, find a better job, or go back to school. I'm 27 now, and stuck in this in between town with not a whole lot of opportunities unless I get lucky and get hired at an industrial place.

    I'm 27 as well, set on a path with good job opportunities and probably a pretty good future ahead (jobwise) and I still feel lost more often than not, so... life might just be weird at 27. Good luck with the search for a better job though!

    I HAVE BEEN SUMMONED

    I think it was @JIM who told me @Running Wolf was looking for me.

    How may I be of service?
