I'm serious Man!

Well I turned 24 on the 20th. Sadly I do not have an extensive list of birthday resolutions. But I have decided that I want to go back to basics and what I mean is that I will stop wasting time with people or things that just don't mean much to me. I'm cutting lose of all the junk in my trunk, dropping it by the road side and driving away.Away away away!
I hope to live more simply and manage my time well. I hope to be happy because its the least I could do. The other day at work, a song was playing form my ipod and that song reminds me of a much simpler time in my life, so for the umpteenth time I told this co-worker of mine that "that song reminds me of a simpler time". The song is Collide by Howie Day. It reminds me of my first summer here and I would like to think that it was a happier and simpler time. My friend at work asked me if it really was a simpler time. Yeah, I started thinking, was it a simpler time? Then I decided that yes, it was a simpler time because I did not have 4 years worth of 'stuff' in my mind and life. There's a Swahili saying that says the longer one's life is , the wiser they get. Why then does it feel like a burden. I don't feel all that wise, I'm not King Solomon or anything. It feels like junk- really, not wisdom, just junk in my head.
Other things that I have to do this Summer that are not necessarily my birthday resolutions are: do my GREs, apply for OPT, and look at potential graduate schools. Another thing I need to do is seriously think about what I want to do after school is done in December.
Now I'll go keep up with the Kardashians. I'm living life more simply right?
