The Passing of Time

Post by Robyn the Ranger » Thu Oct 04, 2007 3:34 pm

Look back 3, 4, or even 5 years. Did you picture yourself where you are now? Happy with where you are? Just curious!

5 years ago... senior year in high school.

Now... year and a half from a doctorate in Pharmacy.

Not bad.

Five years ago I was still playing EQ regularly and about to leave the retail sales industry. Four years ago I was out of EQ, married, had a new degree and well into my new industry. I kinda wish I would have left EQ sooner, but I didn't have a reason, until I met my wife. No regrets.

I had no idea back then that I would be where I am now, that is for sure.

I am empty inside, so I play Linkin Park and cut myself just to feel something.

Sorry, questions like this make me feel like I'm at some faggoty self-help seminar.

No, I'm not where I expected to be, but yes, I'm happy. Go figure.

5 years ago I was still in high school, just starting to think about my future. I'm not sure if this is where I wanted to be, but it's working, it's good, and I'm the happiest I've ever been. 5 years into the future? No idea where the f I'll be.

Edit: Was playing EQ regularly too :P

Interesting. 5 years ago I was about to join the AF. I don't think I ever really thought too much about the day I separate, which is quickly approaching. I'd say I'm much happier now than I was then since I feel my adult life is actually about to start. 16 days and counting.

Hmm.. I'm still pretty much exactly where I was..

Although, I'm less stressed and much easier to get along with now.

Five years ago I had just started highschool. I hardly knew where the hell I was most the time, let alone where I was going to be down the road.
I like posting.

Five years ago, I was hekka fat and wore Jnco jeans and sagged them down to da muddatrukkin conkrete.

Now, i'm quite happy with mah cutoffs and american flag tanktop. I work at Les Schwab cleaning air-caps for tires 12 hours a day. This is EXACTLY how I pictured life to be.

9/10 for sheer sarcasm. I really felt it!



I was sitting at work just kind of reminiscing over the last few years when I made the post. I'm happy with where I am (I haven't retired from my wife and kids!) and was just curious about others.

Back then I was toying with the idea of going career in the army. I didnt really know where I'd be in 5 years and didnt really think much about it, that was kind've the point. But plans have a way of changing -D
I stopped ignoring/hiding out from my larger circles of friends and the teenyboppers have finally drained out of the underground music scene in my area, or at least learned to shut the fuck up and stop radiating poser bullshit whever they go and annoying me to the point that I risk my freedom every time I step foot into a bar so I have gotten back into it and am having a blast. I was starting to feel a bit old but the metal girls have reminded me of who I am and how much fun life can be. I'm happy as hell and if nobody gets pregnant I see no reason why I cant continue on as I am for another decade or so at the very least! And the economy in my area is so booming that I now get rediculous contracts thrown at me whenever I want and I work a hell of alot less for a lot more which also kicks all kinds of ass. Things are good, I travel on a whim and go on benders whenever I want for as long as I want and also am getting back to my love of the mountains and exploring areas of my country I never knew existed before. (I saw a freaking blond bear last month!!! It was a blond grizzly! A sub species I didnt even know existed!!!) Mmorpg gaming is pretty much a casualty at this point as I refuse to adhere to any schedule but my own and just log in here and there and amuse myself with lowbies mostly but whatever I can always get back into it hardcore when I am old and on my 3rd liver.

I'm not dead yet. That's something.

Agreed. I would've thought I could've beaten my liver into submission by now. But it's pretty resilient apparently.

im indifferent really, not really happy or sad. life itself seems like some vague dream that ends when i go to sleep...hoping for a better dream where the sex with korean midgets and handicapp strippers are plentiful and my life is filled with the holyness of gawd and reces pieces peanut butter cups :albino:

Sometimes i crave york peppamint patties...Its just, just that, when i bite into one, i get the semsation that im skiing down the swiss alps butt assed nekkid, while little children sprinkle ice cool watter on my asscheeks...mmmm Damn that feels good!

5 Years ago I was working a crappy job, sobbing over an even crappier relationship that failed (he was a deviant, lying, sadistic POS.) Now, I'm married to the guy I am meant to be with and have given birth to a future ninja and 1 semester away from getting my BA (finally!) Pretty cool.

Kids definitely change your perspective, Robyn. It's no longer about you but about them and their future.
