I Can't Wait Until I'm 40
I'm a pretty confusing 23-year-old. Some days I know what I want and then other days I just confuse myself and everyone else around me. I'm shy yet super cray around my friends. I'm bashful around certain groups of people on certain days of the week -- But then give me another random day and I'll take over the entire room with my God-given charisma and worldy-witty jokes. I'm such a strange contradiction. It's just annoying 'cause you never know what you're gonna get out of me.
That's why I can't wait until I'm 40. I'll have it together! The feeling of insecurities and slight rejections will no longer surprise me. When I'm 40, nothing will be able to take me down! I'll do flash mobs like once a week. I've got it all planned out. I'll walk into McDonald's, take over the sound system, and blast my voice across the restaurant singing "Firework" by Katy Perry. And I won't give a crap because I'm frickin' 40.
When I'm 40, I'll be totally cherished and loved by the people who I know will be there for the rest of my life. I won't feel the scary mystery of the future anymore. The guessing games will be a thing of the past. I'll be solid. For sure.
I'll be balanced by then. By time I'm 40 I'll understand myself enough to teach others what I know. Those youngins' will glean so much wisdom from my years and knowledge of past mistakes. I'll be open about them and shame won't be a word in my vocabulary.
So I'll wait until I'm 40. Don't worry, I won't be here just twiddling my thumbs. I'll be painting my nails and going to the spa once a month for beautification upkeep, of course! As a 2015 23-year-old, I think it's my duty to prance in between responsibility and emotional entertainment. Right now, it's important for me to maintain my status and keep up with the trends!
Until I'm 40, I'm gonna live the YOLO Life. You know: "York Only Loves Oneself".
MAJESTY YORK only lives this day according to what YORK wants. And besides, I took that personality test that's getting pretty popular. It said that I'm much more emotional than anything else. I have to feed into my feelings then! I have to shrink back when I see harsh injustice happening around me. I don't have the emotional stability for that stuff yet! Some 40-year-old will take care of the oppressed. I'll save up my money to attend my favorite concerts. I wouldn't dare to try sponsoring and supporting children and families around the world who can barely stay afloat from the oppression around them. I can't save the world so I'll just focus on myself. I'll do more of that when I'm 40...
Is there a time or age you dream that will complete you?
What makes you shy back from being all you can be today?
Why does it seem dangerous to put all of our focus on future happiness?
