Tomorrow I turn 26 years old. I know most people have heard that I feel like every birthday after 21 is just an annual reminder of everything you haven't accomplished yet in life.  Just being honest with myself I'm an immensely disappointed in my self. Which I guess is a good thing. If you ever find yourself satisfied you'll never grow or improve. I hope I never lose the hunger even if I do "make it". I wanted to have a wife and on kid three by 30 not to mention at least waist deep in my career. I don't think I regret anything. I am proud of my uniqueness. Our time on earth is finite. I spent a great deal of time... I don't know I guess ashamed or afraid of what was "wrong" and different about me. But I've come to realise that you need to be weird, crazy, and different because life is too short to be anything but happy or at least actively striving to be.
