Hi Nicole! Not at all. As a kid, we all picture ourselves as princes and kings or simply very wealthy and successful. However, this is not always possible in real life! The system we live in has everything to restrict our moves and in most cases this holds us back!

No I didn't picture it to be as it is now. I thought I'd be married with children, and I'd have my own business. I suffered pain from scoliosis when growing up, and I had a car accident at age thirty and now suffer chronic pain, and arthritis this changed my plans to have my … Read more

Um, according to my childhood dreams, I should be either doing a hood slide across a fine looking red/white car to catch a criminal:

OR . . Be horribly maimed (but with no pain) only to be reconstructed by the government to work for a super secret intelligence organization:

More or less. I came from nowhere, set little direction, and arrived nowhere. I guess I achieved my dream.

But as dull as that sounds it has been anything but dull. It's surprising how many watersheds, most of them tiny, have shifted me into different directions and created unexpected pockets of enjoyment.

It's been a … Read more

Short answer..... No, but it is even better then I thought it would be.

My long answer is this which I wrote a few months ago:

“But things did not go the way I had planned”

Thirty years ago, I was gonna be married to Elvis Presley. I

My older brother came home with his girlfriend for the first time and after he left my mom looked at me and said he was going to marry her, and she wasn't happy about it. Sure enough they got married and divorced about 10 years later. It was not a good marriage.

Good question! I wish I knew how to start over too. My first step to get started was close my eyes and choose five places on canadas map and wherever I pointed, I applied for a college program transfer to there. That way if I get accepted I sort of have a plan and I'm … Read more

I don't feel I'm considered older by most standards, but at 36 I'm Oder than enough fellow users here. Today's music sucks outside of a few rock and roll bands. I can't stand hip hop/rap. This "alternative music" is garbage. I'll mostly stick with rock from the 60's through the 2000's.

Being Ancient I have heard music come and go. I really don't hate / dislike any particular style or genre. However music for me is an emotional thing. If I am in a happy / excited mood I need some really upbeat music. Sentimental or romantic mood calls for soft strings and piano. Being Ancient … Read more
