I'm still pretty young, but I've certainly noticed change already. I can't drink much at all anymore - I think I pretty much killed my system in HS, or maybe it's just my tolerance is kaput. Probably both, but I'm happier this way. I don't want to go partying so much as I want to just go somewhere and enjoy the world. It's a bit odd, but I don't need that fix so much anymore, although a few rounds of flippy cup are always welcome. But I'm tired of the social scene now.
Anyway, upon finding out today that they've upped the compensation rate at the Peace Corps to exactly where I wanted to be (I swear, I wished for it to happen this morning and found out tonight it had already happened - crazy...), I plan on following that in the future, possibly as a career if I like it, and into grad school. I never really thought about careers or even the near-future earlier, and now I'm planning years in advance and getting excited over jobs and further education... I don't think I saw that coming, and honestly I can't even recall when the shift happened.
But winter still takes a g-damn eternity. Even at 80 I'll be complaining about how cold it is all year long... in Italy.
