Not reslly. I wasn't that happy from middle school on through high school, and then I got to college and things significantly improved. Now as an adult I can do all kinds of cool shit. Drugs and alcohol are fun, I can still watch cartoons, and current video games would have given kid me an aneurysm from an overdose of fun. My artistic skills are always improving, and someday soon I might be able to get a job in a creative field. Sure I'm still lonely and single, but in getting way better at talking to women and there's plenty of time for that. All things considered I can't complain.
