The Good Ole Days.


A phrase that is so overused must have some validity. And the phrase that I am referring to is "ah, the good ole days." Life is cool in so many ways. It's amazing how much better it was when I was 22 yet how much worse it was at the same time. I remember being 24 and just praying 30 would arrive so I could be established. Well here I am just months away from 30 and while I may be a little more established, I'm definitely not there, and I'm not sure I'm much happier either. Would I go back to 24 if I could? ABSOLUTELY! I'm far wiser now than I was 5 years ago and would make many different choices but making those choices would only change my path and change who I am today. Whoa. I need to slow down. (I promise I only poured myself one glass of Sherry.)

Anyway, I spent about an hour tonight reading a "how to" book on editing film. I'm not sure I really learned anything as I don't have that gift of storing things I read. I was unfulfilled when I put the book down and started searching through unpacked boxes from Nashville. (over 4 years ago.) I found the box with my old gaming electronics and hooked up the Super Nintendo. I originally hooked up the Nintendo 64 but couldn't find the games to it. Doh. So the 16 bit system it was.

Man I miss being a kid. Games were so much cooler back then! Ok, they are so much cooler now but I'm 50 and can't figure them out. My 6 year old nephew whoops my ass when I go home for Christmas and it hurts me to no longer be the gamer I once was. "Ah, the good ole days." To only be that innocent again.

OH POOR SWEET SIL

You are starting to sound like me know with these reminscent posts, pending monumental birthdays that end in 0's can do that to you.

Learn from my mistakes, don't lose the future looking back on the past, just live in the moment.

There is an old quote "Life is a banquet and most poor son's of bitches are starving to death"

It's difficult to grow into adulthood. Just make sure to take care of yourself. Resist developing addictions and take care of your mind, body, soul, and spirit. Also, go to the gym.
