Day 36: Watching the days slip by

Today’s inane image of the day:

This was taken during my last visit to South Haven, MI during Memorial Day weekend — I really needed something peaceful to look at this morning, so I thought this was fitting.

It just occurred to me this morning that six years ago, today’s date was an important one to me. The date was one that I grew excited and nervous about. But this year, it came out of nowhere — I woke up, ready to crack open the books for some early morning studying, perused my favorite blogs and caught up on Facebook. Upon opening the page, the date finally sunk in.

Everyday I grow more and more aware of the days slipping away. When we were younger, we yearned to be older, to be allowed to be adults — now, I just want to turn back time. I want to live a carefree life, filled with petty problems. I miss the endless hours sitting in front of the television. I miss the days when I didn’t understand adult concerns. Now, years seem to pass in the blink of an eye, and the people that you thought would always be in your life, slip away along with time.

There will be people that impact your life in ways you could never imagine. And then there are people that you thought would impact your life. It’s incredible how much changes from adolescence.

    “There will be people that impact your life in ways you could never imagine.” No doubt dude… no doubt!
