Going backwards? or moving forward?

Does anyone feel like they are moving backwards rather than forward? I am at that point in my life where all of my friends are getting married, are having kids (if they don't already have them), and pretty sufficient in their lives. I am just going back to school in January to finally finish my undergrad and then i'm moving on. So you would think that was moving forward...but I have the feeling that it will take me longer than i would like. My first priority is to be done with school, then move, then get married. Somewhere in there I need to get a real job as well. Is this too much to want in the next 3 years?

I think it's not too much to want in the next 3 years... actually.. what do you want to have is attainable. Pursuing your undergrad studies is not a backward move after all... Going back to school doesn't mean you're literally moving backward but rather... this is yet another step forward in the road map of your life... After all, I don't believe that there's such thing as moving backward... We are always heading forward, maybe others are just moving faster than we are.. but I do beleive that we are all in the same race... it's a race but not of how fast we could go leaving others behind, but how are we goanna get into the finish line on time...

You can do whatever you put your mind to if that is what you want in the next 3 years then do your best to achieve it, I mean I feel the same way now I just got laid off my job and haven't been able to find one, I don't have enough money to move out of my boyfriend's parent's house, etc. I mean life throws things at you and you got to realize that most things aren't handed to people unless your rich lol, you have to go get it yourself. Good luck
