Sorry the chief. Don't mean to move in on your territory, but when I saw the title of your thread, this is what I thought it would be. Serious replies only. Here's me in 10 years.
Living in San Jose, California in a 4 bd, 3 ba house with 2 car garage containing 2 cars, a half dozen bikes and all kinds of crap that I need to clean out one of these days, a fenced in back yard, with a few fruit trees, a hottub where I like to smoke a doobie and soak sometimes, and a deck where I barbecue for my wife and 17 yr old daughter or have a few friends over with their wives and kids.
Making good money as a senior lawyer with a good US tech company and finding the work interesting sometimes, but mostly just sick of it and wishing I could retire and spend more time hiking, biking and relaxing with my family, but California's so damned expensive, it's continued to decline in the past decade and I need to keep working, since I hope to retire in the next 5 years or so and am not sure I've got enough saved, especially because my girl will be a freshman at UC Berkeley next fall -- at least it's a lot cheaper than Harvard or Stanford which she was accepted to but declined, but it's still not cheap.
After we arrived in the US, my wife took a couple years off to study English in the local college and then went back to work, which was good because she was going crazy from boredom at home and besides, we needed the extra cash. Or at least it seems we NEEDED it, I don't know where all the damned money goes, because it seems we always need more. Can't imagine how someone survives as a teacher or a postman.
Of course my Chinese has almost completely slipped away (and I don't care about that at all), despite the fact that we return to Taiwan annually for a brief visit. Actually, brief for me, but my wife and daughter went back for a few full summers and my daughter's totally fluent (reading and writing too), so I'm sure she can land incredible jobs if she wants, though there's still a good chance she'll switch from pre-med back to literature and go into teaching.
As for me, 60 years old, getting bald, getting fatter, getting tired, wondering is this it? Is this what it's all about? Sure, I've got some nice stuff and enjoy relaxing about the home or heading up to the mountains on the weekends, but still . . . is this all there is to life? I can keep cycling those hills, trying to delay the aging process, but it's futile, it continues inexorably and will eventually make every one of us weak, frail, old and gray. . . and then we die, and that's it. Holy shit, dude, that's fucking morbid. What's wrong with you? Snap out of it. No problem man, it's cool. Here, want a hit, I better go check our burgers, I think they're done.
