I am looking back at when I was 15 - no wrinkles, with all my teeth. Now I'm wrinkled with no teeth.

Just to think, I used to take the lazy way out of things. I'm glad I changed. I wouldn't have lived this long. I probably would have died before I got to 18 years.

If I'd stayed like that I would have been to jail, rotting like a lot of my friends. I would be dead, six feet under the ground.

But I changed. I went to college, had my own family, began working as a small time pilot and made my way up. I have a big house, lots of cars and plenty of money.
