19? Let’s retire now.

by Nic Olson

Nineteen years have passed, and all I’ve done so far in my life is work and go to school. I need to do something about that. The only positive attribute I have had in my past years was my youth, and it is quickly slipping away from me. Soon all my positives will be no longer, and you will only see my negatives. Which are still quite admirable traits, if we are going to be frank about it.

Eighteen years old was a good year. I got lots done. I went to university, India, Yellowknife, Vancouver, worked a few jobs. It was busy.

Nineteen will hopefully give me this: India again, more work (bummer), university again, a wife, casino winnings, a beard, a pony tail, a bicep. Those are my goals for my twentieth year of life. We’ll see how it goes.

What better birthday present could there have been? Carey Price. That’s all I can say.
