I’m not entirely sure of the age span around these parts, but this might be fun.
Although I’m currently 28 on the Earth - Solar scale, I’m already thinking of my 20s in the past tense and in many ways feel like I’ll be starting off from scratch when the big 3-0 comes around.
I kicked things off pretty well, backpacking and traveling around, kissing hot young things next to Italian lakes. Trying to stuff as many experiences as possible into my little haversack of life. I never went to university, so never had a ‘thing’ that I was busy working towards or building upon.
Then as I approached 25 for some reason I thought I should have it all figured it out. Hell knows why, but I just started to take life seriously and started to worry about the meaning of nearly everything. The fun times stopped. Resulting in a mid-life crisis type mess that I’m only just crawling out of now. No discernible career plan, back living at home and quickly on my way to becoming a 21st century male cliche.
With that said, I’m looking forward to my 30s, fresh beginnings and all, hopefully catch up on some sex with other desperado’s before I’m too old and creepy. I sacrificed my prime years to figure out the meaning of life, what a (non) fucking idiot.
Anyways, for those with something to say. Which decade have you, or are you enjoying the most? Your twenties or your thirties?
Maybe you’ve done both. How’d that go for ya? Any sage advice or stories of reckless abandon?
