If you were forced to live forever at any age, what age would you choose, and why? What if your memories stopped at your chosen age? How would that impact your decision?
If I could live out my entire life as a 25-year-old, I'd be happy. I'd be more mature than I am now, but still young. I guess I can't really say for sure, though, since I haven't made it to 25 and I don't know what it's like. I don't think I'd want to be frozen at any age I've already experienced now -- my life in general seems to be improving as I get older, and I'm hoping that trend continues for a bit. (And if I'm going to be totally honest, I'd rather stay young-looking for the rest of my life. Vain but true.)
If my memories froze, though, I think I'd want to stop at about 45. I could be married and maybe have kids, and would have experienced enough in my life to think that the memories I've made up until that point would be enough. I haven't done enough in my 19 years of existence so far to make me feel that way yet.
I just finished my first week of classes, and I'm back home for the weekend to go to Tahoe with my dad tomorrow. We're taking a day trip to the slopes to ski, since the torrential rain from the past week should have provided some fantastic powder on the slopes. I'm excited :D
I actually like my classes so far -- I've fallen in love with French all over again, and beginning music theory hopefully won't be too difficult. I'm less thrilled about physics, but I think it should be okay. And bio is going to be good and relatively easy (though I haven't had lab yet so I don't know if lab will kick my ass...). It just feels good to be back at school and accomplishing things
Hope you all had really good holidays and a not-too-bad start to the new year! I plan on getting back into shape and getting a slightly higher GPA this semester :P We'll see how that goes...
