Welcome to my tumblr of randomness, themed with gay bears and video games. I'm a college student in Milwaukee just beginning his life.
I’m still alive - I swear! I don’t have access to my desktop still and most likely won’t until December, but I’m just poking in to say hello. :) Hope you guys are alright. *hugs*
When it comes to age, I look forward to growing older. Most of my friends are at least 10 years my senior - even those that go to school with me. As I get older, the main stress factor is making sure that I’m living my life to the fullest, hence a recent personal decision in my life. Following that thought, I would have to say that even though I feel like I have been held back a bit, I’m very happy with where I am at right now at 23. There is so much to look forward to!
When it comes to others and how they treat age, I tend to get a little feisty depending on their opinion. I don’t mind dating/being with someone twice my age, yet others can’t even fathom such a thing. I believe that those older than us have more stories to tell, even if they may not have matured; therefore, they should be treated with some level of respect as an elder.
When people look at my age group, specifically, heading towards mid 20’s, we are expected to be starting our lives. I don’t believe that one MUST get their crap together and have a career, house, or even a family by 22/23/24 w/e. We all have our own path in life to follow. Whether we start early or late, we should not pressure ourselves to feel the need to become something until we believe in it for ourselves.
*steps off soap box*
I have much respect for those in my life no matter their age. I’m fortunate to be around those older than me, for they have been more than generous to make sure that I do well in my own life.
I’m going to be away for a while. Recently single and in the middle of finding a new apartment. See you on the other side…
D’aw, thanks. Now excuse me while I follow yours and like a whole bunch of your stuff. K? Bears and video games is how I role.
