    Default Mid-life crisis early?

    Well... some of you already know what I've been up to, but for the others, I will quickly bring you up to speed on what this old cat has been up to. It certainly makes me think I've lost my good sense.

    In the past month or so, if I'm not at work stocking shelves, I have been running the streets, playing gigs, or hanging out with my boyfriend. I've gotten a tattoo, made my ear piercings gauge to a fourteen mm, and cut my hair. I've also gotten shit-faced drunk and experimented with pot. I lost my virginity and done other things best left unmentioned.

    I live alone in my apartment and I keep my bills paid off and enough money in the bank to cover gas. Of course, the man I'm dating my mother hates and is worried that I'm going to be making a huge mistake.

    Typical crap, yes?

    I think a lot of this is due to the fact that I have had my life controlled ever since I was a child. I was told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it as long as I can remember. I went straight from high school to the military and only left due to a medical condition.

    I wonder if I'm doing the normal crap twenty-somethings do in their spare time or just acting out because I can. I'm shocked at the physical changes as well as my mental outlook. I've actually gotten to where I could care less what people think so long as I can get my job done and take care of those who matter to me, the world be damned.
    Anything that you haven't fought for isn't going to be appreciated. It takes blood, sweat, and a large amount of tears before you appreciate what you have.

    Just do try to be careful or you may do something you really regret

    On the other hand, you could be acting this way because you feel lost? Do you think you have a grasp on your life, that you know where it's going and is it the direction you want it to go in?

    I love it. It's absurd, but I love it. Like I love stinky cheese.

    So it's something similar to the Chinese word for "Restructuring"?

    Maybe?? I am not Chinese.. My boss used it on me once when I considered myself to be in crisis.
    Come to think of it.. some "restructuring" did follow this crisis..
    So yeah.. I guess that works.

    Unfortunately, this is, as far as I know, a urban myth.

    Does it change the point either way? Wisdom is wisdom.
