And I just want to tell everyone... If you hate your job, quit. If you hate your school, transfer. If you're in a bad relationship, leave. If your friends make you feel bad, make new friends and ditch the old ones. If your family makes you feel bad, move out and lessen your contact with them. If you always wanted a pet, move to a place where they're allowed and get one. If you always wish you had something better, stop for a second, look around, and see what you already have. My friend was 31. He first had symptoms a little less than 2 years ago. Pancreatic cancer moves fast. Before then, he was in school doing what he loved, and considered asking his longtime gf to marry him, but was never able to make the commitment. They broke up. It was she who called me today, immediately after receiving the news from his family. It doesn't have to be cancer. It could be a car accident, which is obviously more common with young people than cancer is. But there's nothing like a year of cancer treatment to make you consider what you wish you could have done when you were physically able. When you're young, you think you have plenty of time in the world, and in a way, you do. You should still plan for your future. But life is too short to be unhappy.
