    Right In the Middle

    I still like new music, not going for the elevator stuff yet.  Still get out and stay active, haven't become lazy yet.  Still can remember what it was like to be a kid.  But I don't need to drive a fast car, or spend money like it's water, get drunk every weekend...

    Ready To Settle Down...

    At this age, 19, a college student should reflect on their attributions to society and how to maintain a proper balance between adulthood and education. We are to live wildly, party like it's 1999, drink until our livers are screeching with aching pain, but not me. I did my 18...

    Mirror Man

    Yeah, not coping at all well with the old fart in the mirror. Who is he? Surely it can't be me! I still feel the same -inside- as I did in my 20s. Except I get tired more easily, and women don't look twice at me any more...

    I'm 21 With 25 Years Of Experience

    I was "bummed" about being in a car accident and not being able to do the things I wanted to do. Like dance, swim, power walk, etc.I had to get well from being pretty banged up in the wreck.  The doctor wanted me to understand that I needed to get well and that things take time...

    Stuck

    I'm just stuck in the middle. Now I'm reminded of a panty commercial with the song "Stuck in the middle with you" playing.

    I Feel Like This All the Time!

    Wow, this is an awesome group!  I feel like this all the time.  I feel like I'm too old to start anything because I will never get good at whatever I start (I am one of those people that won't start something unless she can be an expert); however, I feel...

    How Old Is Too Young?

    When I got to 45 I simply stated that Iwas half way to 90 and left it at that. Since then, helped no doubt by the fact that my wife gets words and thoughts tangled, I have started substituting one word for another just because it sounds similar - but means something...

    Cursed

    the way I was brought up by my Dad was extremely strange. From the age of 7, he would sit me up in the early hours of the morning and tell me buddhist theories on life and how he thought the universe worked, and we would discuss philosophy and where we thought it all came from...
