My family are trying to convince me to buy a house and have kids, NO way , too young at the moment and too much too see !!! my sisters can do all that stuff for me ( forgetting that they're younger with kids and houses )

samsara2 and raven - I'm only 22 and my parents are trying to tell me that I need kids and settling down by 30 (for those of you that haven't experinced it, you cannot understand attempting to tell your parents you're not haveing kids, before 30 or otherwise!;))! I agree- I have 4 sisters and I'm going to let them have kids. I've just started my true traveling experiences (I've traveled a lot as a kid) and the thought of not traveling is nauseating!

to quote Cupcake (since quoting seems to be the thing to do ^_- )

[Stuff is just stuff. And ALL stuff can be replaced. There is freedom in NOT having material possesions. There will always be another car...house...apartment..furniture...Travel at every opportunity!]

This I believe to be a pure genius statement! It's important to not let your possessions own you. After all when you are old, would you rather show pride in your wooden dresser, or the places you have been, people you have met and amazing experiences that have helped develope you as a person.

I havn't sold anything yet, but I am putting my next trip to Japan on a credit card, or only some of it.... >.< I wish i had something with enough worth to sell ...ha ;)
