"When will you settle down?", my mom keeps asking me every single weekend at the Shabbat dinner table, while the table gets bigger and bigger, filled with more adorable nephews.
But what if I'm not ready to settle down yet? Is it wrong to want to enjoy my youthfulness a bit longer? I used to take risks every day – literally dodging bullets and jumping over improvised land mines. Why should I stop now?
Society keeps putting so much pressure on us to settle down - go to college, start our careers and get married. Sometimes, I wish I could put it all aside and do whatever the hell I want;
Take risks, enjoy life, and still, somehow, manage to save the world.
