As I reach the final weeks of my teenage years, I am now beginning to feel the nostalgia of a less worrisome and more carefree time in my life. The less responsibility you have, the easier it is to be happy.
I went through a lot of my younger years not realizing how happy I was because of the lack of worry in my life. Now that I am in college and forced to be more self-sufficient, I find that I procrastinate duties quite frequently and get really stressed worrying about stuff coming up.
However, I still consider my college life to be the end of my years as a kid. I definitely don’t feel like an adult, and I definitely have not taken on full adult responsibilities (whatever that means these days). I feel that my next couple years of my undergraduate studies will be a time to soak in and appreciate the lingering times of carefree fun.
I will do everything as I move forward in my life to maintain the essence of my youth in spirit. I hope I never become too blinded by unimportant obligations to remember not to take life too seriously. Live the life you love. Love the life you live. Deuces.
