"Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things."

WHY WAS THIS NOT IN THE FINAL CUT.

Or even the Special Editions. This is GREAT.

C3PO YOU F*CKER

I have a new favorite Star Wars moment.

I love how the guy who opened the door is just like “it’s too late he was a dick any way no one will miss him I’ll just close this door”

I feel like my stance on having children has evolved in a way that is counterintuitive to my age and gender. Most of my young life, I imagined having children when I was older. Fatherhood had always been kinda bundled into that ultimate, long-term pipe dream, ya know? But my mom’s berated me with the mantra, “Don’t get married til you’re 30,” since I was old enough to say the word “girl”, so there was no real rush or anything.

But now that I’m older, old enough to live on my own, old enough to marry, and old enough to actually *have* children, I’m not so sure about the lil buggers.

About a year ago, I made the realization that, where I currently am in life, I would not take the same steps my mother did in having me. 25 years ago, my mom was widowed, self-employed, and decided to have artificial insemination to have me on her own. Now, when I say I wouldn’t take the same path, I’m not talking SPECIFICALLY about the artificial insemination; I’m savvy enough to know that a man can’t be artificially inseminated (…yet…). But I mean, about having a kid on her own. By herself. Yeah… I wouldn’t do that…

I’m fairly confident that even if I was happy in a serious, committed relationship, that I wouldn’t want a child even through adoption. I really think the only reason I’d get behind raising a kid at this point in my life is if it was actually the biological product of my partner and me. That would be worth it to me. That’s amazing. That’s literally a life made out of the merging of two lives in love. This baby is something we have made together and will raise together.

But outside of that, at this stage in my life, I really only see raising a child as a road block. It changes the trajectory of one’s life in remarkably dramatic ways. Are there great things that come with parenthood? Of course! I see examples of it all the time. And those are the elements that I’m sure appealed to me as a child dreaming of fatherhood one day. But for me, it really wouldn’t be worth the trade off unless I had a part in making the child.

I’m not saying I hate children. And I’m not saying I think people who adopt or do artificial insemination aren’t wise. I wouldn’t even be here if my mom wasn’t one of those people. I’m just saying I’m NOT one of those people. Or at least that’s what I’m discovering about myself. And now I find myself wondering if my future will see me choosing to have *any* kids. And the self-discovery process has me laughing at how backwards it all seems. Don’t most guys grow up with fun and play on their minds and then grow into wanting a family? I grew up wanting a family, and now that I’m old enough to start my own, I’m not really sure I want it. Life is a wild, wacky, wavy ride, guys.
