My Job

To put it short, I'm not a fan of my job. Some days it can be good, while others it can be bad. Just like any job really.

The parts I dislike however is that I have to work 6 days a week with the SAME EXACT people. You could say they're like family cause there's times I love them, and times I "dislike" them. Probably because of the amount of time we spend with each other. For one, when it comes to what I want to do with my life and how to get there, not very supportive. Not to say I need their support but when holding that stuff in for so long or getting negative criticism everytime it's brought up, it can get say the least.

Not to mention they can't take anything they dish out. I'm I guess what you'd call the "pick-on-buddy". It doesn't bother me cause I can take it and don't take it personally. I love laughing at myself. It's never a matter of "not sticking up for myself" cause ultimately I don't care and if they do say something offensive, I call them out on it. BUT, whenever I make a joke towards them or call them out on something, that could be the SAME scenario or situation as something they've done to me, they get offended and pissed. Not to mention they act immature about the whole situation by dropping comments that are below the belt....and they know it. I constantly use this as motivation to get out and into a job I love doing.

Bottom line, this is me venting. I don't like to complain about these things cause I feel like when it's actually spoken, it sounds silly. So I'm writing it down...or typing I guess.

I Want an Adventure

I feel like I'm in a state/stage/phase, or whatever you'd call it, in my life where I just want to let loose. Lately I've had urges to go on some kind of adventure, big or small, or something exciting that gets my adrenaline pumping. I realize most guys have these urges but it seems like the urge has been more strong since I've been out of my "teens". It's as though my 6 year old self is trapped in my 21 year old body. You know how when you're young you daydream about being in car chases, skydiving, etc. Well it doesn't help now that I have the tools, money, and the means to do those things. Such as having a car and wanting to be in a car chase. I find myself now, when listening to certain music, accelerating on highways and "slightly" weaving in and out of cars. I know I know....I'm that guy.

There's so many things I want to do now that I know I won't be able to when I'm older. This due to a wife, kids, more bills with less money, or even won't physically be able to. I wanna do things like go on a road trip with friends. Go base jumping, cliff jumping, bunjee jumping, and any other kind of jumping you can think of. I want to travel and meet new people and experience different things. I would like get and ride bikes; this being both kinds, motorcycle and bicycle. In the summer I want to wakeboard, knee-board, jet ski, and anything else you can think of doing on a lake. I especially want to start camping more. I absolutley love gathering around a campfire with friends and talking and laughing.

I want to do all these things now because I haven't gotten to do them, or if I have not as much as I would've liked, in my past. Plus it seems the window for these opportunities are short on life's schedule. From now on back I've had to go to school and have a job leaving me without time and money to do those things. Most of my money has gone to expenses not leaving me with much to make these dreams realities. I feel now is different though and I'm wanting to take advantage of it. The adventure begins now and I do not want to look back. It's time to live with some adrenaline....and I am so stoked.

Pros & Cons of Growing Up

As I've come to grow older, I've learned to love it while at the same time hating it. So, I've decided to list the pros and cons of a natural part of life....growing up.

More responsibilities
Having your own income
More freedom....most of the time
Deeper thoughts
Deeper relationships
Tend to be taken more seriously
Developing your own family

More stress
Harder work
More expenses
More complicated
Life is less forgiving
Loved ones die
More decisions

Pretty basic answers. Could go more into detail but....just didn't.
