@sparky263:  bass is great – four strings vs six so that’s a no-brainer. It is also a fun instrument to learn because you can google tabs very easily. If you ever get there PM me, Fiance is great at breaking down tabs so people can learn.

Just take it easy though, if you are feeling perpetually down and stuck-in-a-rut you might actually be depressed (in which case you need a doctor and not some tattooed South African bride-to-be on the internet), so keep track of how you feel but don’t overthink things. You are still so very young and I am positive you have loads to look forward to. If it makes you feel any better, I am increasingly starting to feel like I should have had kids at a younger age. I am consistently preaching to my friends to blog about their child-rearing and home-schooling experiences so that I can live vicariously through them, so I guess that’s the flip side here.

I am having the exact same feelings, and I’m almost 25. i went to college, grad school, this is the beginning of year 2 post-grad. No children. But I still am realizing I need to figure out who I want to be… and how to get there. I need a better job — WAY underemployed right now. What are hobbies? I spent the last 5 years in intense schooling that I LOVED– THAT was my hobby! And now I don’t know who I am. Different circumstances, but this isn’t just you!

To quote George Clinton (of the group Funkadelic) – Free your mind and your ass will follow – the kingom of heaven is within.

I went back to college at age 30 and I have an awesome career now. I got all of my tattoos after the age of thirty. Life does not end simply because you bacame a Mom.

Will just say this about “being too old for school.”

College takes four years.

If you go to college next year, how old will you be when you graduate? 28.

If you don’t go to college, how old will you be in four years? 28.

So do you want to be 28 with a degree or 28 without a degree?


ETA: I saw you wrote it’ll be several years before you go to school. That’s fine! The logic still applies. Good luck. You’re still really young. Kids will grow up and be in school soon. Then you’ll have freer days.
