I guess so...like countless others, I'm 65, retired, and living in Florida. OMG, after all this time, after my wild young days as a hippie-freak musician living in a sixth-floor walkup in the East Village, I've gone to the complete other end of the spectrum. From one cliche to the exact opposite, O God I can't stop laughing at myself. This is just too funny and I never realized it before. Please excuse the ramble, but this is a truly astounding, incredibly funny epiphany for me. O God, I can't believe it!! *wanders off, tears running down cheeks and stomach aching from laughing so hard at self*

No, life has had a lot of bumps, curves, and dead ends. It's been a long and lonely road and I am running out of gas.

Best Answer

I am trying to be honest, I have sat and thought about it, but I can't remember what I was reaching for, it feels like I have been on this earth for a damn sight longer than 48yrs, altho' endeavouring to end on a positive - just maybe I haven't got there yet..she says with no conviction, only delusion, lol.

I plan on being a nurse and then after that I would like to be a pharmacist. I am really scared of nursing but I am already in the field so that's all.
