...my big what's the meaning of life question, well sort of. I guess I'm basically just wondering what I should do with my life. I'm in High School, pretty much an underachiever and my life revolves around skiing and mountain biking. Most of the people I know want high-paying, high-stress jobs and I not sure that's for me. I could move to a ski town, make money somehow and ski 4 days a week. Or I could go to college and go through six+ more years of school to get a masters, move to a big city with a high-paying job, get married, have kids, work all the time and let my life pass me by. Sure I'd make more money and have a more comfortable lifestyle but is that what it's really all about, having money to buy things that you really don't need? I'm just sick of seeing everyone I know work 50+ hours a week and come home too exhausted to do anything else and repeat that every week for 50 weeks a year. Is that what its all about? So do I step it up a little, try a little harder, and get into a good college? Or do I chill, ski, bike and have fun with my life? So I guess it comes down to do I want to be happy or do I want to be 'successful'. I know its possible to have both but there are very few that have that opportunity. You can probably tell I have a pretty good idea of what I want considering this is a fairly one-sided post, but any thoughts, comments and advice would be appreciated. Remember, you only live once.
