I feel at this stage in my life, I'm just a drifter. I'm drifting on my little boat, filled with my wishes, and hopes and dreams. It is all that is keeping me afloat till i reach my paradise. And when I finally do arrive there, then I will feel that I've started living.
p.s: this contradicts my belief of living my life to the fullest each day, but my life is full of contradictions, so it fits somewhat.
