The Road I'm On

This may not be a well thought-out, planned blog, but do you consider yourself a person that's adventurous, takes risks, is spontaneous?

An opportunity has come up. I turned it down but, I could've easily had free tickets to a concert of artists that I feel are 'okay' but I wouldn't pay money to see them, but anyways, they're in Atlanta, 3.5 hours away, to which I've never even been before. I almost said YES to this chance just because it was something diff. and it would allow me to drive away. But I turned it down.

This comes up a lot but my priorities in life, like my job, money, and everything like that get in the way. I'd like to have a part of my life that I saw as fun, but it's gradually diminishing away, and although I listen to music, I'll go to the occassional concert, and take the occassional planned out trip, I really don't know what's so fun about my life anymore. Everything has been so serious for so long, and I don't know how to change that, because once I even remotely think about it, all the stress comes about what I CAN'T POSSIBLY do without waiting forever and ever. . . . due to my responsibilities. And I'm still young, at 24. A lot of people say they'd take my job in a heartbeat, whereas I don't appreciate it as much as I should. And I do appreciate it. It's just how I feel here now vs how I used to feel here.

Any thoughts/suggestions/feedback?? I'd really like people's takes on this.
