    Isn't it wierd how life is full a cycles of coolness. Those days are long over. You hit a high point then it regresses back down again. Those that are living it up High School, do it now, because after high school you become nothing again.

    you are right.
    i was pondering this yesterday, in fact.
    My mentality is a bit different, however.

    It seems like i go through a high, perfectly balanced moment every few years or so, then it goes back down. and up, and down.

    Its bad for me b/c i become verrrry nostolgic and try to live life the way it used to be, as opposed as being in the now.

    i guess w/o the bad/bland times we wouldn't recognize the good.

    Your absoulutely right, it comes a point in a persons life were they start comparing the present with the past. And the good doesnt seem to compare to the good of younger days. I guess it is more responsabilty and real life stress.

    It stems from being carefree and you'll never be that carefree ever again.

    It sucks because I know I'll never be able to
    re-create the times I had with my me and mine
    but it's good because I know I had 'em and
    I wouldn't trade those times for anything.

    Who knows, people never REALLY change. Everyone still has that flare deep down.

    It's too bad adulthood forces you to second-guess yourself to silence.

    sorry, but i'm cooler than i've ever been

    ..it's taken a long time.

    i wasn't cool at all in high school
    i didn't party, didn't drink, didn't do shit except go to shows and raves.

    eventually, that all changed.

    but i spent the last ten years getting better at graffiti
    doing a ton of traveling
    graduating college while intoxicated
    getting arrested
    being put down with a crew
    dropping the automobile and riding a bike
    etc etc etc.

    and as far as responsibilities/carefree attitudes
    my car accident last year cured me of a lifelong depression and suicidal tendency
    i am happier and more content than ever
    in great shape
    no kids
    no husband
    no mortgage
    no problem

    I was hoping you found a box of old pics and decided to share.

    I remember being in my teens and thinking
    that the people who realy had fun in life were
    all in their 20's. Mostly it's true, but now that
    I'm mid-20's I can see that there's a lot of fun
    to be had in the 30's. Well not everyone....
    but there are some people who just seem to
    love life more and more as it goes along.

    All though the teens I knew that there was an
    exciting future for me. Well now I'm here and
    yes, it's good to be here, but what's next.

    why cant the search find Saturn's Return?

    10 years ago huh?....

    that would make me 15.
    I'm sorry.. but 15 was not a very cool time.
    Hell.... the only thing I wanted to do was get laid
    but I had no idea why or what to do about it.

    grade 10 right.... yeah... that was my pit of highschool.
