    I want to do anything else other than what I do, but no opportunities at the moment. Waiting for an open position at Screen Gems Studios in the transportation dept. Or open a business with a friend renting Bicycles and surf / paddle boards..just so we can fix them, or a decking company. Half way through life and have no idea what I want to do.

    Wow man I miss one day and all this good stuff happens. Hey Blackfish, don't feel bad, I'm right there with ya, 32 tried a few things...taught, construction, lobster boat. Now pondering the next step. If there were still lobsters in the Sound that's what I'd be doing. IT gruntwork at the moment, which is ok cuz all my sicktime has been used to surf and i don't catch any shyte. Hey PJB spot on as always.

    Man, Friday the 13 was a fun day for me too 34th.

    Couldn't agree more with Zippy!!!

    and Paddington...

    "Accepting jobs you hate only leads to crack and Kasser's vodka and opiates. Don't let the world define your existence, create your own. Really, this existence doesn't matter. Surfing is one of the only vechicles on this planet worth chasing, and it is one of the few things that let you even begin to undertsand anything. Dogs help, too. "

    THE ONE THING WE ALL HAVE IN COMMON (on this forum) IS THAT WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE FOUND AND HAVE SURFING AS A PART OF OUR LIVES!!! WE ARE ALL WATERMEN AND I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE THAT EVEN REMOTELY COMES CLOSE TO THE FEELING THAT SURFING GIVES US! AT THE END OF OUR LIVES I GUARANTEE THAT YOUR BEST MOMENTS IN LIFE ARE GOING TO BE BECAUSE OF SURFING!!!

    I really feel bad for the people that never get to experience it or the guys that just watch sports on tv for fun.

    Surfing keeps us alive. Surfing keeps us in remarkable shape. In the human species we as surfers are all above average when it comes to physique, stamina, coordination, overall health etc... For those of you that are 25 and over take a good look around at your close friends that don't surf. Its not just physical either... your mental well being, spirit, attitude etc... are all heightened just because you surf!

    Cheers to ever started this thread... I think its really making everyone reflect for a moment.

    31 years is impressive! People seem to switch jobs to often these days. I think they say on average people switch jobs every three years now.
