    Do I Have to Wait Until I'm Retired?

    "I want it now!" Veruca shouted. And I understand how she felt. I'm not a religious person and I'm not sure about an afterlife. So it's a horrible tragedy to get caught up in the mundane aspects of this existence when it might be the only one. What if I finally start my voyage...

    I want to sail around the world, why? Because then I wouldn't have to worry, I could let all my worries and fears be washed away with the endless waves. I'd be able to see new and amazing worlds and have a carefree life, not always worrying about how we'll pay the rent next month...
