A few years back i went on one of the most insane and acclaimed roller coasters in the world. I had never even ridden on one before, and i went straight for the biggest one. I remember the first drop, the speed, the pressure, the pain. I hated it. I thought i would implode that day from the G's that thing hit.
Its been something like 3 years since i rode that rollercoaster.... but those 5 minutes i spend on that ride, have suddenly started to feel exactly like everyday of my life for the past 3 months.
Everyday i just hang on.
Anyone else feel like this?

-Girls like big strong men, all the other men has to find a niche or a thing they supposedly love, you know...like saving whales or reading books, to get laid.
-Look..first I am scared little freezing virgin munk, but then I bare my self and I am nothing like a freezing virgin!
-Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke, he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today.

being and adult doesnt sound so appealing anymore.
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

For eight months of my life I was taken on a ride. I enjoyed it more than nearly anything. I always had a clear mind and rarely thought about anything. It was great. I was free. Now it's totally different.

If I could go back in time I would definately go to college, take it easy for as long as I can before diving head first into this whole adult thing, I lived in 3different countries and Im only 21. That being said, try to better yourself every day and find the things in life you enjoy most so it doesnt all seem like such a drag.

Go figure, I would much rather stay where I am right now then going back to being younger.
I prefer to have a great wife, good job and all the freedom to buy and do what I want to.
Obviously this will be reduced a little when I have kids but my life today is 100x better then 5-7 years ago and it was pretty good back then.
I always though that being young and "carefree" was overated, even back then. I always saw partying and getting waisted as a total waist of time and money.
Just my POV.
Highschool was fun, but I really like college alot better. When you come home and party with all your old friends again, it really makes you realize how much more you appreciate them then you did in highschool.
However f I could put myself in a time machine that would take me 5.5 years into the future and I would be done with school, I would do it in a heartbeat.

All the time bro, I get confused and my attitudes/goals change as often as I change my underwear (at least once per day, I'm not a dirt bag). Sometimes I questions whats the whole point you know? Why get out of bed in the morning? Where is this is going, whats the big great end result I'm working towards? At times I can be a real head case, having sever mood swings. I'll go from perfectly happy straight to depressed or out of no where I'll become on edge exploding on the drop of a dime.
I do know one thing, the gym helps with a lot of this. Less time to sit around thinking and when I'm lifting I feel like I can actually concentrate on something. Same with school or work, as long as I'm distracted and don't have to deal with reality I'm fine. Free time = psycho head games for me, and right now I've got WAY too much free time. Time to find another job.
Sometimes I swear I should be locked in one of those padded rooms with the other loonies.
