Dear friend that I don't know,
There may be sarcasm or edginess in my writing but if so, it's satirical. I have passions too. I'm 36 even though people think I'm 26 without fail.
I was lower middle class until my Mother, a career nurse, married an Aerospace Engineer that worked for DoD when I was 16. Then I had an upper-middle
class life in the most expensive neighborhood in my city, until 2008. Financial crash something mortgage whatever. I was naively ignorant to that part
So, all of my grandiose, quixotic goals that I formed from being in an environment where I had mostly comfortable, almost luxurious free time
(compared to a realistic account of what I earn) I eventually had to let go with age. Not from a medical condition, but from situational reality.
I found my parents deceased years apart of course, yada yada, etc etc.
When I descended and adjusted to life without all of the extra we take for granted unless we're paying the bill (good food even at home, wifi, cable
tv, possibly a nice environment I didn't pay for), my scope changed into something more pertinent or realistic to my life. I'm not going to be a
politician or a wealthy businessman even though both are in my blood. The odds are against me ever owning my own restaurant. I could make that my #1
goal until I pass away whether I acheive it or not but.. it's not that serious.
I hate to be a downer but I'm not being one either, it's in your perspective how you interpret it. You'll probably never make it to Africa to protect
endangered rhinos in the jungles and shrublands while fighting off Malaria, but that's quite alright. There's other people to do that and not that
many are required for the task. If they go extict, it wont be because of people trying to go against and fight nature. They used to be plentiful,
thousands of years ago. The problem is that they hardly procreate and there's few left. Call it Mother Nature.
