Troubled times are just milestones

    I guess you could say that I'm at the age where everyone just wanted to " party" if you asked me 6 months ago how I wanted to spend my nights I would simply answer " party and not remember any of it" 6 months ago I was a different person, since then I've changed, I've realized these are the critical days of our lives, or at least that's what I've been telling my self, for the past 6 years I've been working my ass off trying to make enough money to put myself through school and to eventually get out of this town. I guess the milestones I'm experiencing is views from my friends, they think I'm boring because I never come out to party, get drunk or get stoned. They think that when I'm not put doing that stuff I'm being lame. The truth is for the past 6 years I've been working, planning for the future and trying my hardest to make it in this world so I can eventually get on with my life. If me being lame is staying home during the week to study or to register for courses then I guess I am lame..... The one think that grinds my gears is when people make comments that I'm always at home, unlike the majority of my friends I actually like and get along great with my parents, and me spending time with them is usually alot more fun then hanging around a bunch of drunks. The bottom line is that put of 30 of my friends about 10 of them have a job and are actually going to school. And I'm called " lame" for wanting something more... I would rather be at home than hear about their drunken nights they don't remember and how wasted they got, life is more than having a chugging contest and falling face first on the floor. Maybe it's sad that I would rather make something of myself and in the end have no friends than have a bunch of drunk friends and be living with my parents for the rest of my life without a job. I need something stable in my life than something unstable. Life is to short to be basking in the sun taking shots than being somebody who's actually going places. Milestones may break me down and defeat me at times but I refuse to be stuck dry and lifeless in this town for the rest of my life.  Time to throw down the 2'6 and go to work.

      Yes  you are doing the right thing by trying to improve your and move on. Believe it or not there ar people that are doing the same thing. I would, however advise you that all work and no play makes Jack a dul boy. You don't have to go stupid to have a little fun. Just pick your friends carefully and know when you are about to get yourself into trouble. You know life is kind of like a practical joke. If you go to far you can destroy yourself as well as others. Everything has its limits. It seems that to me you are intelligent enough to know your limits. So don't stope having fun. Just try and live a balanced life.
