Nobody likes you when you’re 23. Luckily I’m only turning 22. Sorry for the corny, cliche song lyrics. I just had to get that out of my system. Also, I hope by the time I’m 23, I won’t be blogging the night before my incomplete paper is due.
With every birthday I feel like I’m getting “old.” I always experience a brief introspective moment when I think about my age. Well this is one is a little different. I am still getting old and feel like life is moving too fast. But at the same time, I feel really young. And that’s an understatement. I can honestly say I feel younger than I’ve ever felt in the last 4 or 5 years at least. And it’s because I’m really starting to see the world now. I’ve developed a few passions in life that are really opening up new doors for me. I just see more opportunities and things to do, enjoy, live, and experience now out of life. It’s amazing how many people take this for granted. Experiencing life isn’t just going to try new things, its also about enjoying every moment you have good or bad. When I was 15 or 16, I went to a really really rural hick town in central PA for the weekend, with three of my good frends at the time (2 of which still are). That weekend, the parties we wanted to go to fell through, our car broke down while it was raining, and of course when it stopped raining, it snowed a shit ton so we couldn’t even go out anywhere. Nothing went according to plan. This weekend was one of the most memorable moments of life. I was trapped in a house with 3 of my really good friends, without any substances, tv, video games, and computers. I’ll never be able to express how fun the weekend was on here, it was just one of those things you would have to experience.
Well anyway, heres a bucket list to check out: http://celestinechua.com/blog/whats-on-your-bucket-list-101-things-to-do-before-you-die/ I know I’m going to make more of an effort to do these things.
