Thizzle.This thread makes me glad I broke up with my ex girlfriend. She is a freshman in college and got a new bf and she is talking about marrying him and how excited she is to have kids and settle down right after undergrad and all this.
Fuck that shit, I love the girl to death but I plan on wild'n out for a few years and experiencing life to the fullest. Can't be spontaneous and adventurous nearly as much with that shit tying me down. Especially after undergrad before grad school I plan on living a pretty nomadic lifestyle and taking winters off to live in Cooke City or Red Lodge and ride. Don't see myself settling down until I find a girl worth settling for and even if so, not until I have experienced a lot of what I want to experience. Maybe around 30 that seems like a reasonable age.
I will never understand how/why people want to "settle down" right out of school. your 20's, even 30's have the potential of being your most exciting, free to do and experience everything, years. like who the fuck gets done with college and says to themselves "now that my opportunities are endless, i think ill get a 9-5, wear a suit, have kids, and be comfortable"?
I actually look forward to settling down at some point, but it will be because i spent so much damn time having fun, pushing myself, doing crazy shit, and experiencing everything i could to its fullest, that i'll actually need to take it easy and relax some. but fuck doing that now, settling down in your 20's seems like your just skipping one major, important, and awesome part of your life, and instead spending the next 70 years doing the same routine and being comfortable.
