I'm going to skip the intro and cut to the chase.
This summer has been crazy. Really, really crazy. (I touched on that briefly in my last post, but I'm re-emphasizing.)
Do y'all remember three posts ago, the angst-y fourteen year old, terrified of the idea of taking driver's ED, getting a full-time job, and starting college classes?
Hello, that was me. (Keyword being was.)
Over the past two months, my idea of what I want to do with the next three years of my life and then the next two/four years after that have been flipped upside down and shaken around. I have a new found motivation for those things, and can't wait till I can do them!
I'm not claiming that fifteen was some magic number, and that I'm now just so much older, experienced and mature, (quite the opposite really.) But somehow, everything I was worried about two months ago, I'm now really, really, really excited for. So much so, I need to not rush myself and remember that I have time.
And I can't help but read that other post, cringe a little and go..."What was I thinking?"
Cause the truth is, being a kid is great. But I really don't understand how one might want to stay one forever, when life has so much to offer. I failed to step back and look at the big picture, if I'm being honest.
I do hope you all have had a lovely summer, and thanks for sticking with me.
