Which I suppose brings up the great point of the equal ratio of blessings and burdens that being a member of the elitest clique of adulthood brings. Sure, we can buy cigarettes and watch porn legally, but are the blessings we get from our maturity worth bills, and payments, and mortages, and felony charges, or anything else?

My truthful opinion is yes. After the age of 18, you are in control of your life. This may mean that you have no excuses for why you fail, time and time again; this also allows you to do whatever you feel is best with your life. You can disregard ethical bullshit and live off the streets, or you can grow up to be a doctor. Your parents, God, or the Pope himself can't tell you what to do with yourself. YOU lead the life YOU want to lead.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Something To Write

Posted 18 November 2002, 12.38 am by Arguile

Have you ever noticed how life can never reside at a metaphorical stand-still for too long? Sometimes it feels like my life can never hit a plateau for more than a month; something always has to toss a wrench in the cogs of fate. As a result, few things life brings surprise me, and none can completely astonish me to this date.

I miss the days of childhood, where things never escalated beyond the point of crying to your mother about your scraped knee. Or past the issue of your vocabulary lessons being only 90% correct. Adulthood brings freedoms, but it brings more hassles and worries than we ever imagined as adolescents.

(To prove I'm a nerd, I will now use a Spiderman Quote: "With great powers comes great responsibility")

I truly believe that Vancouver has one of the most beautiful cityscapes. This photo was taken late in the afternoon. The way the sun was hitting the water almost brought me to tears. I think that someone should make this into a postcard that promotes our beautiful city.
