Recently, a lot of my friends have been getting married. Also, a lot have been getting pregnant/having babies, but that's a different story. We're sticking to marriage today. And well, frankly, its depressing to someone who hasn't dated in over two years now and once had those same silly thoughts. So...after finding out about the latest one, I texted my bff. Our convos rock...

Me- Talk about fast! Saw the pics online...When will we get married? Lol
Her- Hopefully not until after I get my master's degree
Me- three more years
Her- Exactly. You can married before then if you'd like, but I need advanced warning so I can get my ticket
Me- I'll let you know two to three weeks prior haha
Her-oh [great]--I'm doomed

Maybe its not so funny to anyone else, but it is to me. But frankly, I don't understand why everyone seems to be getting married so young. I mean, the average person will live till around 80. That's a lot of years. And getting married at 20...that's 60 years with the same person. Just over half a century with the same exact person. To some that seems awesome and everything....but I'd like to have some of my own life experiences before I stick myself with someone. I mean, seeing some of the world, spending more time with friends, doing things I enjoy and not having to ask another if I can stay out late or go here or there. Most people I know will disagree with me, and that's cool. Opinions differ and that's what makes life interesting. However, to my young friends, really think before you go and get married so young. You may be in love now, and I wish you the best, but think. That's my soapbox...I'm off...
