The day of reckoning is at hand...

In 48 hours, my life will change forever...in 2880 minutes, I will no longer be the innocent child that I try so hard to maintain myself as...in 172800 seconds, I will enter the world of bars, booze, and liquor stores.  In 2 days, I will be 21 years old.  More specifically, I will be just plain OLD.

I have mixed feelings about this birthday, much like I had with my last one.  People laugh and snicker when I tell them that 20 was a bad year for me, but in all reality, I really had trouble coming to grips with the fact that I was no longer a teenager.  I no longer had an excuse to be immature, irrational, spontaneous, and carefree.  I was now an adult, some one expected to be responsible, predictable, and boring.  Well frankly, that's bullshit.  I refuse to be old, I refuse to grow up.  I wanna be immature, dammit.  It's what I do best.

After this birthday...it's all downhill...

I think that more than anything else, I am extremely worried that within a few years, I will find myself watching Richard Simmons' "Sweatin to the Oldies" videos with my mom and talking about how receding hairlines suck and how fun it was back in the "good ol' days."  I'll have a steady job (hopefully), mortgage payments, sterile and boring clothes to wear, and some sort of pet that I spoil and baby to death to replace the lack of happiness and contentment in my life.

Or I could just stay in college forever and be one of those scary 28-year olds that continue to show up to house parties lookin for some loving.

I don't want to grow up; I refuse to.  A 21-year old Jason will be no different than a 20-year old Jason...well, other than the fact that the alcohol will flow aplenty from my humble abode.  Screw you adulthood, I'm going to whine my way back to being a teenager and be reckless and irresponsible and mooch off my parents and sleep in really late.  Yeah, sounds like a plan...


Presenting the 2004 Concept Car for the new Mitsubishi Eclipse...

As an Eclipse owner myself, I can't decide how to feel about this new car.  There are good and bad qualities to it.  On that note, I'm going to run...I'd better do it now while I'm still young :-P...
