I'm kind of bothered by people's expectations of life these days but maybe I'm seeing things in a bad perspective here. All around me I'm seeing people my age (25)getting or desperately wanting children and a relationship where basic needs are met regardless of what the future may bring, hence all the single parents. I'm still exploring my needs and wants, I'm about to explore some modelling work and plan to travel all over the world in the coming years. I'm in the works of starting my own business venture and trying to set some personal goals in sports as well like running in the NYC marathon. Then I look back at my environment where people are contempt being a teenage parent and just like following nature's script or something, get your own place, get a kid and work till you die. There are some older more experienced members here, maybe I can benefit from your experience and see if I should lower expectations as well.
