"How has your life changed in the last decade?"
I'm definitely curious about this as I imagine most people on BZPower to be in their teens or 20's. Growing up into adulthood tends to be an interesting time period for most people as they're faced with confusing situations and feelings, some for the better and some for the worse. Since I imagine most people see their childhood through rose-colored glasses, it makes me wonder as to how those who reflect upon it see theirs.
For me, it's been... interesting to say the least. In some ways I would say that my life has improved in different ways but at the same time it hasn't. When I was younger I use to take great pleasure in the simplest things. Getting that new Toa set or if I'm lucky, being able to get one of the new titan sets. Being excited every time the LEGO magazine would show up and would have the next BIONICLE comic inside. It was a simpler time.
Right now I would say that I'm not nearly as pleased with the simplest of things. I can afford LEGO sets all I want but I choose not to buy them. I have wants and desires but I have no way to fulfill them. I've so many goals that I wish to complete, many in the long term and so far off into the distance. I've gone through acceptance and denial over situations involved in my life. But the differences aren't all bad. Through growing up, I've been able to realize what it is that I want in my life, whether it's about my career or the type of people I wish to surround myself with. It's interesting so to speak and very... different.
So what about you?
