Wow. It’s been a little more than a year since I last posted here on aeturnalus—a year since I’ve posted anything significant on the internet, really. I’m a little disappointed in myself: I wasn’t really that busy that I couldn’t take a few minutes and write down my thoughts… just a bit too lazy to actually do so.
I’m now just about halfway through the summer after my first year of college. As cliche as the statement is, it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. Time flies, and there are things to do and people to meet. Small wonder that I haven’t really thought about the world at large.
A little older now, I have some new experiences, a little more knowledge, a few more regrets. I’m still not quite sure what I’m doing with my life, nor where the future will take me. In a way, nothing substantial has changed since the end of high school.
And yet, everything’s just a little different now. I see my old friends, and it’s obvious that something has changed. We’re not sure what, not sure when, not sure why. Somewhere along the line, we popped that so-called Lynbrook bubble. We’ve seen the reality of others’ lives, and we’ve been affected by it.
Most of us have changed for the better. We’re taking life more seriously, trying to figure out our place in the world. I was certainly surprised to find that many of the people who I thought were most likely to be lost in a haze of alcohol, parties, drugs, and sex are more mature than even those who I’d expected to excel.
I have to say, freshman year was pretty awesome. Sure, it was busy, hectic, and even painful at times. But I met some awesome people, and had some great experiences which I’ll remember (hopefully) for the rest of my life. It’s hard to imagine that I only have three more years of this—life is too short, really.
Anyways, these are just some random musings. I will probably write something more serious (a little bit, anyways) later =).
