Half a life time ago


I've come to the conclusion that time goes too fast. You may have noticed but I have an obsession with time - and it's becoming steadily less healthy. I don't like wasted time - I say this, I spend far too much time on Protagonize not doing the things I should be doing, although the way I see it at least time spent on Protagonize is usually productive in one way or another - I may not be achieving something but I'm always learning. 

It's one month until I am 26 - I'm sure there is a lot of you out there thinking, corr, I remember when I was 26. It seems like a strange age to me. I think back and remember that half a life time ago I was in school and telling teachers that I would be doing something with my life. I'm not sure if I'd be proud or not to go back there now - probably not.

But then I think about what I've accomplished in the last five months. It's not all been what I'd wish for, but I've always been working towards something. There are things I still need to get done, and I will, but overall, it's been a good five months.

Half a life time ago, I was in my second year of high school, I wanted to be an actor, I liked rock music and I enjoyed drawing, and from time to time I might write something. Nowadays most of that is still true, only I can't stop writing.

When I look back I always have to look forward too. Where will I be when I am twice my age? I hope I've come a lot further. Where will I be in another 13 years? I'd like to think that by then at least I had established myself in the things I want to do.

Anyhow, that was just something I wanted to talk about briefly, no more wasting time now, I need to set myself some deadlines - I will be back soon to discuss more controversial topics than my wasted time!
