Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were

I hate getting old. I am only 26, I know I'm not old. But I think that 25 is the last little bit of indestructible youth. I still expect to be young for another 10 years or so, but my body's prime has passed.
I wake up and my legs are stiff and my joints crack. I think about taxes, credit, buying a house and of becoming a father.

Wait. WHAT? What happened to drinking until 4am? I don't know anybody that sells or smokes weed anymore. Shit I don't know anybody that drinks anymore. I only have one tattoo!

For any of you youngster reading this, live it up. Burn the candle at both ends, travel to Europe; Japan. Experiment with drugs, boys and girls. Adventure. You're never as young as you are right now.

If you don't like where you, leave and go somewhere else. It's ok to move to a new city with nothing and no one. It's easy to find a shitty job and make friends. Please please know that the older you get the harder it is to do things like that. It's not impossible, it never is, but it's more and more difficult. You'll thank yourself in 5 years that you did that one awesome adventurous spontaneous thing when you were 22. Create good memories.
