Same here, I was 17 when my girlfriend and first wife/current best friend told me she was pregnant. Any childhood I had left at that moment, my Father went from being the biggest idiot on Earth to the smartest Man I know, and I joined the Military.

What really makes me want to wretch is kids today, at least my two oldest, are soooo far from being responsible it's scary to think this generation will be in charge one day.My 24 yr old son still blames any and everyone for HIS actions, HE gets caught stealing and some how finds a way to make it MY fault, see what I mean?

Now Im only 17 and by any means with nowhere near as much experiance as 75% of this forum has. When I was 12 I was told two weeks before starting 7th grade that I was going to be going to bording school in Mississippi. Was having hard family times, not getting along with the stepmom which in my case it wasnt fully my fault, to me she was the spawn of satan. Needless to say I wasnt a good kid. I lied constantly about both big and small things and was having major trouble in school, grades, disrespecting teachers and whatnot. Long story short the two years spent at bording school turned me into a much more mature young man and I kind of for lack of better words skipped the "goof off" kids stage and had to learn to grow up by myself and deal with things my own way. I still find today at the age of 17 that I am more mature then most of my friends. I guess I am a 2 switch lamp, getting brighter after every turn of the knob. I expect there is another turn coming somewhere in my life.

I think it was when I married my wife, and realized her two kids were my responsibility and I had to help provide for them. I wouldn't change it for the world, they can't be little jerks sometimes, but overall I really lucked out in the kid department.

About 30.

I shot and hit and elk, and he ran off down a steep mountain, through a deeply snow drifted stand of aspens with criss-crossed deadfalls, with me in hot pursuit. Each leap landed me about 10 feet lower. After about 100 yds, I skidded feet first into a cross-mountain trail and rolled into prone and finished him, still running away along that cross-mountain trail.

The next day I realized I had badly injured my lower back. I have never fully recovered.

+1. Underrated post IMO. Insight is really good for a 17 year old.

Hope you do go far, sounds like you're on the right path!
