These past two weeks have been strange. Different. And I want to say it’s been different in a good way, because it has been different in a good way. But I think when things start changing I’m proned to be stuck in a different mindset, confined to the memories of a different time. But as junior year progresses I’m really beginning to see how life is really starting to revise itself, granting everyone with new people, new goals and new dollar bills to buy new things with. Things begin to substitute themselves for other things. Personality traits we used to admire in some people begin to substitute themselves for less attractive ones. Grades we got on our report card one semester become better—or worse—grades the next. But I think what’s really beginning to manifest itself in everyone’s sights is the start of a new future, the nagging but exciting pull in all of our hearts that sometime soon, we’ll be out of here.
And what’s “here”? It’s us, it’s within ourselves. Because although it’s only the beginning of a much longer journey, only the tip of the ice berg, only the brink of a different beginning, we see the horizon. And some day, we’ll be sailing.
why are people suddenly complimenting me on my voice?
