I'm afraid.

I've never been a risk taker. I've never smoked, I've never done drugs. Although I like the feeling alcohol gives me, I've never been to a party, I've barley made out with a guy, let alone had a successful relationship. I understand my woes are nothing to compare to some others, but this is my life, and I want to make something of it. Making something of it could either mean having a fulfilling life by being who I want to be, a healthy successful person, or living life to the fullest. (I just had a thought, that being healthy could also include being open minded...) But my point is, I'm afraid I'll have no stories to tell my grand kids, and being young, isn't this the time to go crazy and be stupid? When I get older, I probably won't want to be like that. Should I take the opportunities I get and go for it? Or am I just asking these questions to decide if I should support entertainment for my slightly creepy imaginary grandkids?

  • I feel it is worth mentioning that your creepy imaginary grandkids' love for you is directly proportionate to the amount of candy you give to them, and nothing else.

  • I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Not the worst advice to take.

  • Sure, get a little crazy. But you're smart avoiding the drugs and smoking. Take a cruise sometime, mingle & flirt a little. Or take a trip someplace you've never been. It's easier to open up with people you know you'll never see again unless you want to.

  • You guys corrected my mindset. I've been thinking lately that I should just be just like everyone else. but being like no one else actually makes me feel better about myself. I sort of forgot that for a second. The road trip thing sounds amazing. I want to go out and visit all the haunted houses I can find with some friends. :]
    I am still in school, and that's what's probably making me feel like this.
    High school is probably not the best years of my life.

  • I regret very little in my life, but there is one thing I do regret- smoking. Be brave and never give in and never smoke. As far as stories for future grandkids..even th emust mundane thinsg can be made into interesting stories. If you are still in school- as soon as you are out go for a road trip with a friend across the country till your money runs out. Be safe but have fun. My trip like that lasted 4 months (25 years ago) and I stil lhave great stories to tell.
