Hello everyone, after a couple months of reading through ATS I've finally decided to become a member. I'm an 18 year old living in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I was born and raised in Saskatchewan and only recently moved to the coast. Now that I'm living away from my family and close friends I discovered that there are many things I didn't know about my self, and also realized what really matters to me. The main reason I decided to become a member was because I feel that the majority of ATS members are 30+ and have started to figure out what life is really about. As I read through the various discussions I began to understand that no matter the situation, someone, somewhere has experience in said situation and will give their honest opinion on the matter.
I love to get advice from people older than me, for the good or bad. I believe that your perception is your reality. I take every ones opinion of me to heart, and I learn from my mistakes. I know my generation is the worst one yet and 99% of people my age are blind to the world. Ask anyone over the age of 50 and they will say kids these days are so ignorant, dishonest and shortsighted. I hope that by becoming a member I can learn something from each and every one of you, and maybe teach you a thing or two from my view on life.
