01:42 am - cool night, fine cigar, (mostly) oldskool music Ever stop and think about yourself as you were in former stages of your life, and wonder if you'd like those persons if you met them now, and what they'd think of you if they knew you now? Personally, romantically, even professionally?
I've been thinking about that more and more frequently lately.
It's a pretty mellow thought process. And it's not 100% perfect... but it's a long way from 100% bad. I don't think any of the younger "me" would have necessarily expected to become me, but I think they'd like me. And I'd like them. That's a pretty comforting thought.
Hrm. I think the 'now' me would consider a (much) younger me to be a whiny little bitch if I had to hang out with him. Otherwise I dont think I've changed dramatically over the last ten years. Although if anything I've grown more cynical and more patient.
I think another good question is: If I met myself now would I like me or would I find myself annoying?
I would love to hang out with the younger me; she was much more fun, open, daring, and generally obnoxious. Unfortunately, she would probably talk me into doing drugs whilst out clubbing some night, and I would be back at square one.
Interesting idea, though. First time I've had to actually think in a couple weeks. Thanks.
