This is a response to Kathy’s post.
As long as you feel young you are young! You say, “Ya gotta do it if you want to have a good life” (referring to school), my question is what is a good life? The answer changes for each person. For some people a good life is having a shiny car and a big home, for others it’s about succeeding at work, for me it’s about being free from that and doing whatever makes me happy. If I go to school, I could certainly keep getting straight A’s. I could move on to university and become a doctor or a lawyer. I could live in a big house and drive a shiny car. If that is truly what I wanted, I’d be in school right now. I’m not afraid of working for something if I want it, but things aren’t what I want. School is a place for people who want to get jobs to make money to buy things. Maybe one day I will start to think think that way, and wish I had lots of things, maybe I’ll regret what I’m doing right now and have to start over. Right now I’m going with my gut. If you could go back, what would you do differently?
