Alright, enough’s enough. I’ve had it with don’t do this and don’t do that. That doesn’t sound safe. That area isn’t safe. That doesn’t sound like such a great idea. Maybe take a cab. Don’t walk alone in that area.
Like give me a break!
Not gonna deny, my teenage-hood was wild. Not WILD but wild enough (If you’re expecting stories, sorry. My point’s something else).
People keep saying it’s weird that your teenage years determine your life ahead. Ummmmmm NO IT DOESN’T. The choices you made then are choices your hormones helped you make. And what ever happened to “never regretting what you did“? ESPECIALLY if in that MOMENT it made you HAPPY?!
So here’s the thing… Despite having a wild teenage-hood. I like to think I turned out alright as a young adult.
If anything, I play it too safe. Safe. Safe. Safe.
Over the past few months I have become this care-free walking machine. Which has got me losing friends rapidly. But that’s fine! It only means I’m making way for new ones.
My perfect example is this past weekend.
On Friday evening my manager came up to me and said you have Sunday off, we’re doing some maintenance work. And I thought to myself…. WHYYYYY! *facepalm* *smacks head on desk* I suddenly had an ENTIRE weekend off with NOTHING to do. Most people would be so happy with such information. But I… *sigh*
Stayed in bed till 11AM. Went for a run at 1PM. Stayed home and did nothing till about 8PM. Then got in touch with Shakil and said let’s go for coffee then headed to Gipsy’s.
Yes, went to Gipsy’s by myself, because I can, yet, it’s unlike me to do something like that.
Bumped into Slatch, Mehul and bunch of others and was so happy to see Katie and Fiona and was with them for the rest of the night. Then Ian came along with two of his new friends and it was the 6 of us for the rest of the night. By 3AM I was ready to go home but these guys wanted to head over to Black Diamond. Yes, Black Diamond, the place I swore I would never go to again.
But I was actually having quite a bit of fun and thought, sod it, let’s do this.
We walked from Gipsy’s to Black Diamond. The walk was interesting. The harassment from beggars along the way was the most annoying part. Though, I was walking at a faster pace and had everyone following me. We were a big group on a busy road, so it wasn’t that scary.
Got to Black Diamond, and you know what, it wasn’t as bad as my first experience there in August 2012. The music’s better than Gipsy’s and the crowd’s quite alright as well.
So it’s not really a resolution, as it’s something that I’ve been trying for a couple of months now anyway. Taking risks. But not being stupid about it either of course.
“Stepping into your fear, opens a world beyond your imagination”.
I will forever remember this movie
I keep saying this, our ultimate destination and the one thing we know about life the moment we’re born is that we’re gonna die. The one and only certain thing.
So why not take advantage of life, have fun and concur your fears and live life at 100mph?
