Also, instead of dreading going to work being surrounded by people who don't get you until you can retire, why don't you invest your time and money into things of interest to you. You're already not putting in overtime at work. Seems like there is a lot of things you can do. Seems you got your green thumb workin for ya, but start something new that you can look forward to that will change your life. Don't wait for your life to change by doing your routine things ...

Outside of work, I am a machine of activity and motivation. My weekends are busy and I have a healthy social group.

was going to add but apparently i dont know how to vBulletin that in a non-spouse it might be that you're not hanging out with peers you find similar to yourself. like im a total geek brogrammer and at any meetup group nerd geek brogramming thing, there's plenty of people who i feel understand my ethos.

hey deagle!

i want to know, how many shoes can you buy and own at a time? :0)

at 20 something, you've got it figured out that you don't need to be like everybody and you don't need to waste your time with people who don't understand or who won't ever understand you ... searching for people who can identify with where you're coming from or at least stop to listen to what you are saying are taking the steps to having a satisfying life ...

A lot of trial n error on my part in life. I'm 10+ yrs older than you. Glad that working out my own personal experiences is able to help others

I actually have a lot of friends in your age range and I feel good knowing they're still growing themselves.

So the Duct Tape people followed up with me again so I used the nobody has escaped so far line and they wrote back:
"Thank you for getting back to me, Jordan! This definitely made me laugh! :-)
"

I may have to give them a good review now.

My dad used to own a Buell, until one day when he accidentally left his garage open overnight. Now he owns three.

Delay gratification and exercise financial responsibility, you say?
