So you pick up a guitar in your teens, messed around with it a few months and eventually got pretty good with it.

Your dad brought a computer when you were a kid, and you couldn’t get enough of it, the games, the graphics, the colors, the sound, everything about it was just magical. You cannot be more intrigued to know how all of this works.

You meet a girl, the world beneath you remains the same but everything changes. You think how’ve you been living without this for so long. Life without this doesn’t make sense anymore.

What a fucking frenzy!

If only we had infinite time and could experience all the adaptations we would like to experience.

And since longevity and immortality is likely a distant dream, what to do?!

Considering time as the constraint and other variables, what is the best possible move can we make…
