I was so encouraged by the response there, it really has turned my mentality around about a lot of things. This site in general has aided in my becoming more happy.

And that's something that I've heard so often but I don't think it's ever resonated so much to me as it just did. I posted this video in this thread and it follows the same train of thought. Like the title of the video, Growing is Forever. And I know that. I'm not sure what it is about myself that so often forgets this simple truth.

I like the thought about endless longing. Throughout our lives we will be longing for all sorts of different things. My goal at age twenty is to find new hobbies and things I like that I can continue doing throughout my life. My end goal in life is to open a restaurant, own a few dogs, have a nice wife, and be happy. And as always, listen to music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBDF04fQKtQ

Thanks thefoundation - I wrote a little more about restless longing here - there's even a colour called restless longing.

What would you cook in your restaurant?

Well I'm not so sure yet, I'm a huge food-ophile and I love cooking almost everything. But I'd like it to be a small family run thing in a local community where I know everybody. Hopefully near the coast, so hints of seafood, hearty soups, rich home-made flavors with fresh food. It's my endless dream.

I like that color also, teal is my favorite, and that reminds me of seafoam green, which reminds me of the ocean, which reminds me of longing and wonder. Haha it all fits!
