    1993

    20 Years Ago I Was 5

    so i really wasn't thinking about now. it was a little beyond my conecpt of time at the time. I'm finding it very doubtful that in 10 years time I'll be anywhere near where I though I'd be in 20 years when I was 15

    Nowhere Near It

    I always saw myself as married and have a few kids with a nice house and all that good stuff, been through all that, but I'm not there right now. It's funny where life takes you sometimes. I'm just here for the ride.
