    Maybe you were more cynical than your generation...you like resting in that part of the Bell curve that skews the whole thing?
    I'm Generation X (though I hate the stereotype). I think being the youngest in my family didn't help either. Along with other life experiences.

    So I'm cynical. I think a lot came from my early working life too. That didn't help. Wasn't the best environment.

    Am I cynical? Depends on who you talk to.

    I can certainly get where you're coming from. It is always very interesting to see how people may choose to adapt to the various experiences they have throughout their life course.

    That sucks...and it also doesn't make sense.
    Nothing in this country makes sense. We've got three presidents. THREE. One for each nation, while minorities practically can't take part in politics. They're limited only to the municipality levels.

    Not for what I want. I'd pick the Z or Z force over it. It's still very good though.
    I totally forgot about the Force, Id' go with that one, sure.

    I think there's always a possibly of change. Sometimes it's unexpected, sometimes you search for it.

    Even the basics. That's life.

    People call it a journey for a reason.
    There are things I'd definitely like to change, but as I said, not so easy. Would be nice if I could.

    I'm also Gen X. However, I suspect my cynicism and pessimism was more related to untreated depression than being a product of my generation. I'm trying to move past the cynicism and pessimism that's pretty much been with me almost my entire life.

    My pessimism comes from my environment. I'm from Balkans for god's sake.

    Laura, I think it's awesome that you are trying to move past it when sometimes it feels so much easier to just accept.

    I think we can all (more so me) learn from you doing this.

    The ancient Counter-Strike, this is on Steam alone. There's at least 600 more hours I played on the non-Steam version :D.

    Ohh okay. It must have been fun or at least addictive to play for so long. Wow.

    Don't beat yourself up over the crazy things from the past 30-40 years. You didn't cause it, you didn't ask to a part of it so why should you be the one to suffer from it?

    Sometimes even when you know something is true, it's still hard to accept it. It takes time and getting tired of feeling that way. Been there done that (or doing that I guess).

    What's odd is that I would have thought the winter months (being Northern biased here) would have been more active, yet he we are and it appears people came out of their slumber or something... Or is that school? ;)
