    I see some ppl invest serious money in video games. Don't. Video games can be worth a lot the previous day and then the next they aren't.
    I'm no expert but if really, then invest on shares, saving money, etc.

    The Vulcan worked his butt off to retire early and he's been a pain in mine ever since.

    I've been 52 years at my occupation and have zero intentions of quitting. I'll retire.. sure, but I will not quit working. The human body was not designed to be idle. If you just sit around, you'll rust out.

    All I can really add is that retiring too young can be a mistake for some people. My father-in-law was in a profession he loved (math professor, head of the math department) when he decided to take early retirement. He regretted it very quickly. Once the routine of getting up every day and going to work and doing something useful ended, he quickly realized that golf and other things retired people do really weren't for him. He remained retired, but unhappily.

    Then there's me. I had to quit working at 48, not by choice but by illness. I had planned to work well into my 70s because, as above, I loved the routine of going to work and doing something productive (programming, system administration) every day. I couldn't fathom what I would do with myself if I stopped working before 75 or so! I still long to go back to work but know now that it will never happen.

    So my take on it is this: decide wisely! Really analyze what you're choosing to do and why, and if you're happy with the decision, go for it. You're still a mere child, my son, so if you change your mind you have nothing but time in front of you to undo it all.

    Hey you long time no see :D

    Yes I have been thinking about it I really like your intelligent and in depth and wise response.

    Yes I have been thinking deeply... I really love my occupation I love it so much but... Sometimes it is the stress... Also the extremely long and intense hours... I feel like one of the most hard working and exhausted people in the world.

    It would be lovely to just get a breather sometimes and a bit of a break from it all

    I love my job don't get me wrong it's just the insane amounts of pressure both figuratively and literally! Lol

    And also sometimes I feel like it's just no good for my health at times.

    There are literally millions sometimes even billions in loss if I am not careful or just a second too late the pressure is just so immense I can't think of a job in the world where there is more insane amounts of pressure involved.

    Also there is so much I want to see in this world I would love to travel - solo much to see in this magnificent world it's such a beautiful and vast world!

    I have lost count of all the things I want to do I feel there is never enough time in a day to do all the amazing things I have wanted to do

    I love my job so much don't get me wrong I love the pressure secretly and love the insane amounts off responsibility on my shoulders but there are so many other things I would love to do as well and the years just keep going by... More time goes by and there is so much more I want to do!

    But yes you are right I should choose wisely in a way.

    Lol do you still think I am very young? :D

    Lol! XD

    Hehe yeah i get that a heck of a lot in my industry lol my old mentor when I told him my age he said:

    "Wow you're a super lightie!"

    Lightie is slang here for small fry or youngster! XD hehe :D

    Lol young and a bit stupid! XD

    Shame man sorry about your health issues though MoodyBlues that sucks shit I am sorry :(

    Dang and you are such an extremely sweet and nice person too!

    Got to ask yourself, why did I stay at my job for way too long, and how much will I sit or stand, will I ever do my steps in or not?

    For sure, i will get too deep sometimes, but I am a writer too, so yeah two sides of the same coin, i write more in my notebook then anything else, and on my comp too.. That is why I seem so spacey :)

    I really wish I could retire too young but unless I win the lotto it's never happening. Every few years the retirement age goes up in the UK. As it stands I've got about 37 years. 37 years later though I'll have about 20 years. I've pretty much accepted that I'm working till I drop and kinda annoyed I'm being forced to pay into a pension I'll never see :p

    Its not the age Shotgun84, its what you do in your life to spice it up, been super lucky chosing the inner circle, (e.g. friends of high places early on) and letting the lower people know what was going on as well. :)

    True we may not all make it on that age, but we are rich with the family and friends we held onto dearly in our hearts, always travel throughout space.
