Someone asked me how old I was the other day and I almost said 21, then corrected myself and said 24. And then was corrected by Preston who said
"You're 25." and I didn't believe him.
There's no way. I don't remember getting to be 25 years old! And then I did some math and turns out he's right. I'm 25. Wow. Strange that I actually forgot how old I was. But stranger that I even am that old. And its not super old or anything, its just that life goes by reeeeal fast. Cause I swear just yesterday I was in kindergarden.
5 years old
25 years old
And it feels like just yesterday Jules and I were kids and when I would get mad at her i'd bite my arm as hard as I could then go and show my mom what 'Julie did to me'. And when she got mad at me she'd convince me how cool it would be to
cut off all my eyelashes. So I did it...Turns out it was a trap and I looked real creepy for a while. But then we'd hug and make up and be best friends again.
Crazy how fast the years are going by. its 2010! Its the future. Remember when kids didn't have cell phones (except for Zack Morris to order pizza from class) and the only computer game was Oregon Trail? Remember when Troll dolls were the shiz.
And Pogs? how many did you have?
Man, I'm all growns up and it just happened real fast.
Life is so cool. I'm really really grateful for it.
So many experiences and I'm really thankful that we have brains to record and remember them all so we think back and smile.
I can't sleep. Press is out of town. I'm just looking at old pictures and remembering old times and friends and feelings and places. And I love it. And I love now a days too.
A lot. And I'm real excited for future days and then now will be the past memory times that i'll think back on and smile about.
I feel good about everything. And I feel like I get life again.
The purpose of life is to learn. Thats it. We're just here to learn and have experiences that will help us remember the love and perfection we came from.
