Journal Jar Catch-up

Question 72 ~ Describe a typical day in high school:

Well, I would arrive by car (I waited in line hours to get a primo parking space),m and then would hang out with either: my girlfriend at her locker, my buddies at their lockers, or my favorite teachers classroom. Dork? A little, but I was one of those middle of the road kids. I played two sports, but did well academically (in anything NOT related to the sciences or math, anyway). I had friends in most cliques. Lunch was always the best time of the day, and leaving for lunch and/or leaving for study halls was always a delightful treat. After school I would have practice for this or that, and always flirting or messing around with someone. Oh, to be young and self-centered again :)

Question 73 ~ What was your favorite age so far, and why?

Right now is my favorite age. I'm not kidding. I'm 28, don't exercise enough (I do have a little beer gut), don't eat well enough, but I'm happier than I've ever been. Why? Because I finally decided to make my own decisions in life, to take control of my own life, and to have faith in my religion and God. That sounds silly, but I believe most people are afraid to follow a faith or God because they worry about submitting themselves to a mystery larger than human knowledge can comprehend. I'm not rich, I'm debt-ridden, and I live in a tiny apartment. But I'm happy :). Who can ask for more?
