Today was...well...a myriad of things. Interesting, boring, bothersome, etc. One of my friends from grade school and high school, Graham, stopped by for a visit and asked if i wanted to go for a little walk. I gladly obliged since i'd been stuck in the house all day. This was the interesting part of the day. We basically caught up with each other's lives, talked about old friends, and reminisced of days gone by. Its probably the best walk i'd had in a while...i thoroughly enjoyed it.
On another note, here's something i haven't written in a while...
It has long been my view that a young person should not limit their lives by having sex so early. Sure, in this society everything's bound by sex. Its what drives the current generation of youth. Its gone from its religious sacredness to a mere status symbol. Its like you're no one until you've lost your virginity. This attitude sickens me. Not because of the loss of religious meaning...far from it. Its the whole risk of getting pregnant or getting an STD. Either one will completely ruin whatever life plans that person (or persons) had. I try to raise this point time and time again with various people younger than I in the futile hopes that they will follow their dreams before following their lust. I've seen too many people who've chosen to have sex young and have gotten pregnant thus putting whatever life plans or aspirations they had on permanent hold so they can do whatever kind of job they can on raising their new child. In my mind, these people are fools. They could have done so much more if their concentrations hadn't shifted to a child. Smarten up people....you only live once...make the best of it, eh?
Whew! That was a load i've wanted to get off my chest for a few days now. So, on to tonite. Apparently myself, Wes, Amy, the Twins, and Hank were supposed to go out drinking. However, plans have changed (as always) and we are now just meeting at the coffee lodge to decide whats going to happen. Once again I feel like people are giving me the run around for one reason or another. I really hope its just my paranoia. It seems like I won;t get to go drinking after all and we'll prolly just end up going home anyways. If we do get to the club (read: bar), we prolly won;t spend too much time there. I think Amy already doesn't want to be out with the bunch of us. We'll see what transpires. Til the morrow....
