> That sounds good, definitely go there.
> I am starting to think about one thing though. What if you're not sure you can really make your dream come true anytime soon though? I mean, and I'm sure I'll give it a hard try, if though I ever do come close to making this come true, *if*, it could be years, decades, from now.
> I'm not sure I can really wait that long to start a realtionghip and a family though. In ten or twenty years from now, whne, if, I did get my dreams, I will be too old to have a family my own. fact is, I don't have time to wait until my life is 'perfect' and I have evnerything I want to get married and have a family anymore. I already used all that time up. I am 34. I need to get married and have a kid or kids soon, and just hope he doesn't mind if we have to do that first before I finally get to make my dreams come true. Because truth is, we don't really have much time or choice left, either way. We kind of just have to do this, this thing, that if only we had all the time in the world, and biology knew no clock, it would be so much nicer to put off for another 10 or 20 years, but the fact is, that's just not possible anymore. It's just not. The clock stares me, him, us, in the face. I don't like it either, but I guess I'll just have to hold my breaFountain Of Youthth, shut my eyes, jump in and just do it, get it over with, and then later, just hope it's not so bad, but do the dreamworld afterwards, instead of before (marriage and kids, that is), that's all.
> Dang, where is that darn fountain of eternal youth when you need it, you know?
