‘there is no hope for us’

Mary, there is no hope for us
If this GM van don’t make it
across the state line
we might as well lay down and die

High school lasts 4 years. Lifespan for a baby girl born tomorrow is about 100 years now. For 4% of your life (ok so more, if you figure you won’t live to 100) it seems to be overly important? These self-destructive teenage years when you don’t know what the fuck to do with yourself, is this it? The rest of life sounds pretty boring, if our young and crazy days last so little. By the time you’re 25-8 or so (depending on schooling) you’re supposed to be settling down, getting a real job that you’re going to be essentially doing for the rest of your physically active life, getting married, whatever. I’m not trying to complain. In fact, that doesn’t sound so bad, if you get a job you actually like and marry someone who you understand and who understands you. And I’m not complaining about how it sucks to be a teenager, because I don’t think it is. The whole thing seems like a pretty good deal, with a little luck. All I’m trying to say is, fuck I feel alive, and I don’t want it to end. These are the days of mood swings that I can’t control and days that disappear, as well as days I can’t forget and people I’m struggling to understand. It’s all crazy, I can barely keep up sometimes, but it’s all right. Taking things as they come works better than I ever would have thought.

    dude, fuck getting a normal job. to much work for too little reward. I figure my life at 28 will either be one of an entrapuneur or (more likely) bumming money off my friends to buy lottery tickets.
