When i grow up (2003)

This piece came about during my quarter life crisis in my mid twenties. University was finished, now part of the rat race, hit with the reality of rent, bills, council tax, stress, misery and deaths. Everyone around me seemed to be in a state of depression and unfulfilled dreams. I couldn't help but think of all the plans we'd made as children, all the things we'd do when we grew up, but instead we were stuck trying to survive. In 2003 as I was updating my portfolio website, I felt obliged to have a 'future' section, as most websites did in those days, talking about upcoming projects. I started writing an intro blurb for it. I started with serious intentions, a few hours later I had this. The website is still live at www.abstractshit.com
