Will and I had a long talk about what his career goals were in the military. He has been struggling with the question of staying in until retirement or not. I was pushing him to get out because I want to move back to Portland and buy a house. I cried because I realized I'll be pushing 40 by the time we'll have the option settle down. Will should have slapped me. I keep trying to be the older version of myself who's ready to settle down. I keep forgetting that I'm only 28.
I think being in my late 20's should mean I know my limits and I can make smarter decisions. But I think being in my 20's in general means I should still be doing things purely for the sake of "why not?" If you take away the obnoxious teenage mindset of "YOLO" and strip it to its basic meaning, it rings true.
I don't really have a specific idea of what I'll be doing to take advantage of my 20-something year oldness. But for now, in this moment, I'm going to go take shots while playing video games with my husband in our underwear. Why? Because it's past noon. Because it's a Saturday. Because we have no obligations today. Because why not?
