38 within the week. We're all passengers together, and it's about the trip, not the destination.

I'm almost 21, I guess I should be happy. This whole being an adult thing is hard -- I wish I had a gun and a cargo ship the flies places and shoot whoever gets in my way. Seems a whole lot shinier than what I've got going.

21, third year university. Which officially means this time next year I have to decide if I'm moving back to my hometown or going elsewhere. And I'll have to find a job. Which is good, because n doing so I will acquire a source of income.

Oh, yeah, and the roommate who introduced me to firefly also made me start sounding REALLY prententious when I talk. Picked up his speech patterns

21 here, I'm going to college so I can become a network director (no joke). Maybe I will have a say in what gets put on and stays on the air. Great shows like Wonderfalls and Firefly get tossed aside while tripe like Charmed and Enterprise stay on the air... not when I'm in charge.

I'm 32, going on 19, look 25, fully career-ed (with this irritating little 'side-job' of soldiering), engaged, and guess what? You NEVER figure out 'who's flying this damn thing' until you're on your way out. So my advice is to enjoy the ride. . .even the bumpy parts.

I'm 42 and manage a construction company.

I have certificates in several disciplines but no sheepskin. Everywhere Uncle Sam sent me, I went to school.
I studied what sounded interesting so, no, I don't have a degree; however I can speak semi-intelligently on 98% of the subjects in the world.
Heck, I still try to take at least one class a year just to keep my brain from rotting in my skull.
As for who is flying this ship through the black ... I tend to think that there's not enough solid matter to out there for us to smack in to for me to worry about.

40, I work for as an Engineer Technician for a public works in Northern California. Defender of my country, but only on the weekends. As for flying this thing, I do, but only if this thing you refer to is a UH-1 Huey. I suspect that you (all) are refering to the much bigger picture.

24 here, out of college and curiously directionless. It seems as soon as college is done I lost my purpose.

Like to attend graduate school soon, but in which field I'm not quite sure. Either film or theatre direction, I'd like to study both but can't decide which yet.

As for those of you who are in college wondering "who's flying this thing?," wait until you get done with school. It just gets more complicated. I'll pose the question, as so many of you here seem so wisened in the ways of the world: is it normal to lose your direction after college? Or am I just lazy?
