What does this mean, kids?

I was over at a friend's place Saturday night and we discussed the idea of going to see an Olympics. The 2004 games in Athens were no good because of a conflict on their end. The 2008 games don't excite them (or me) because they're in China. They suggested the 2012 games. I said I was game... And I am. But in my head, the first thing that crossed my mind was, "if I'm still around then." That scares the shit out of me. I'm 24. Why would I think that?

In 2012, I would only be 34. Don't I hope to live much longer than that, even? I don't know why... but death -- my own and others -- has been on the brain quite a bit lately. I don't know what sparked it and I certainly don't know how to stop it all. I'd like to, though. There's no way I'll live to see 34 if I can't get my mind off kicking the bucket.

(BTW, 2012 should be a cool deal. Toronto & Paris did well in the voting for the 2008 olympics. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing the games in New York City or Washington, D.C.)
