It seems like the older we get, the less time we have in our lives. Unfortunately, this has become increasingly true this year. The time I spent as a SEN10R came and left before I truly had a chance to cherish it as much as I would have preferred, and graduation passed over in the blink of an eye. Just yesterday, it felt like I had just started first grade back in Potomac Landing, yet, today, I’ve reached high school alumni status.
While it’s cool (somewhat) to be out of high school, it’s all bittersweet, for reasons that have been posted on Facebook over and over again last week. Senioritis is gone, and in it’s place is this massive scramble to get our
shit priorities in order before we make the big move towards higher education. People are trying to get paid and have fun for the most part. I, myself have similar goals, along with a few projects that I’m trying to motivate myself to complete. Of these, improving upon my guitarist skills, skateboard technique, and Photoshop abilities are among the highest on the list. The other side quests include a graphic design business/hustle that I’m still pondering developing, and a landscaping career I’m not even sure I want to pursue any longer. All of this while trying to pack as much ridiculous O.C. fun I possibly can into each waking hour.
It’s a pretty daunting task we have on our hands, with such a short timeline. At this point, it seems that sand is pouring out of both ends of the hour glass. But for now, I guess the only option is to body-surf that tidal wave of metaphysical silicon out to greener pastures and happy days.
