In awe.

So I'm sitting here, thinking, really thinking about the fact that I graduated high school FIFTEEN YEARS AGO next month. Fifteen years! Holy sh*t! And I graduated college ten years ago this month.

Where the hell has the time gone? I'm serious - what have I done? Besides the obvious go to college, get a job, get married stuff? I guess that's a lot - but it truly feels like I am the same person I was back in 1991, ready to, well, if not take on the world, at least party my last pre-college summer away. Which I did, and also successfully did many summers after that. But I don't really feel older - but I'm guessing back in the day, I must've thought 32 was quite, quite ancient.

Holy crap, I need a drink.

That's exactly how I feel turning 30!! What have I done? Is my life where I expected it to be? Should I have done more? I still feel the same as when I graduated high school, but is that a bad thing? Should I feel differently? Should I feel grown-up? I can't take all this. Let's go to Chili's and drown ourselves in Presidentes.

Aww, you're as old as you want to make yourself! In my head, we're all the same age.

I don't really feel old -I just can't believe there have been so many years since I graduated.

So, why am I just finding this blog now? How else was I supposed to keep up with your comings and goings?

Amanda said...

Beth! I figured it was pretty easy keeping up with me because you get to sit three feet away from me. Lucky you.

I don't feel old. I feel like I'm still eight on most days. What I worry about is whether or not I really SHOULD.

Working on a college campus definitely makes me feel old! But I try to fit in the best I can and hold my own when it comes to partying with them haha!
