I am a bit of a spender. When I have kids and I need to worry about them I will probably settle down with my spending habits, for now, I enjoy being young, but unfortunately not single.
Thats how i see it...Maybe without the blow and the hookers! If it makes me happy, i have no problem getting it...We live once, so better do it well...

And that's why I feel that my decision to downgrade and buy an e34M5 as opposed to an e39M5 was a good one, those cars sure can put a damper on ya.
Mind you, my car needs to be serviced as well, and that ain't gonna be cheap. I can only imagine the e39 M5.

I think it is important to spend money on travelling in the summer time. There is just too much negative energy from the people that got themselves in huge debts and loans. Once you run into them , it is quite bad. No offence.

Also, there is a chance that you may end up with a materialistic woman. That means when you get married, she will want the kidd, new house/car and all those things. If you have not gone anywhere during your young days, you are nailed. Once you get very positive and your health is in tiptop shape, all those things will come to you. Spendings, Bimmer, cotages and other goodies.

As Fil said, you live once, do it right. Don't try to invent hot water when it's there already.

nothing beats world travel.. i'm not talking about bullshit all inclusive resorts though, more like chillin' at a watering whole in Namibia watching lions and elephants or swimming at the edge of Vic falls. Best. Times. Ever.

for what some people spend on rims and body kits I've lived shit most will never experience. Life = new experiences.
