Life is... grown up.

I'd never given much thought as to what I would be when I grow up. Even as a child, I don't recall ever saying.  With the  exception of the occasional joke that I would be a stripper or something.

Completely out of the question, considering I've zero abilities to dance... Among other things!

But yea, I never really gave  a thought as to what I would really being doing.

Now I sit here ... as an grown up child adult and still I have no idea what I want to be. Or what I should be doing.

I can't say there is a void or something missing. I just wonder

Is this it?

Is this forever?  Is this what I will always be doing. Nothing... Nothing of importance .. With the exception of my monkeys, I've nothing much to show for this life. No other GRAND  memories.

I wonder, if I'd given it more thought. Would I be doing something else? If I'd chosen the football star? Of if I'd actually tried to look the part, would I have gotten any further? 

Life is weird.

And to be honest, I don't know that I would change a thing if I were able to go back in time.  Well, maybe  a thing or two. 

One day I'll know.  Then!  THEN!  It will be GRAND!

-Hang in there


  1. Hey old friend. I'm back. Grown up? Who wants to grow up? I hear those strippers can pull in a couple of grand a night. Worth the dancing lessons huh?

  2. Did you feel any better after writing this post? Hope so.

  3. Some people have that drive- to move, to accomplish. Others don't mind taking things as they come. My son is the one, I'm the other.

  4. Haha I would have loved to have seen your families face when you said you wanted to be a stripper lol.

    My sister has never known what she wanted to be and still doesn't. She is in a job she enjoys though and thats the main thing.

  5. I think a lot of us feel as you do. I know I have similar feelings...I guess it's normal! :)

  6. I've felt the same. Guess I wanted to be a bit more academic in life. I'm too old to do anything about it now. The chance may still come for you.
