I know it’s been a while since I last posted, I was bombarded with all my exams in the span of one week, of course. But now, I’m lucky enough to be writing this from my parents’ couch (that I talk about all the time because yes, it is that awesome), with my pup at my feet, and on my dad’s MacBook Air. Clearly, living the life. You can expect more Cleveland adventures (some actual adventures, some just me sitting in this very spot and ranting on about things) in the next 10 days. Especially since A, along with all my cousins, will be joining me shortly.
But until then, I wanted to share this quote with you guys. As my friends and I wrap up our final year of college (I actually feel a pang every time I say that), we ponder the concept of growing up more and more. We tell ourselves to live it up now, because in just two months we will have to be fully matured adults. But…will we? I think we put so much emphasis on growing up these days that we forget that it’s actually an endless process. You’re never really done growing up. Anais Nin nailed it:
“ We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations. ”
So in the next few weeks, let’s not pressure ourselves to be adults, or act childish for the last time. Let’s just let our past, present, and future act on us as they wish.
Just some food for thought.
Hope you all have a great week!
