Having been on this earth for 27 years now, I have learned a few things about life. I can save this particular list for a different entry, but I will get into one of these things. Long ramble short, time flies. I feel like as I get older, time goes by faster and faster. I remember as a kid, I always thought that summer break lasted forever, now sadly summers go by freakishly fast. It is so incredibly weird to think about where I was and what I was doing even just a year ago… last October, I was (as always) planning our Halloween party, but also super excited for my family to come visit from the states for Thanksgiving weekend. Sadly, I wound up spending part of that long weekend in the hospital. It seriously all feels like it was just yesterday. But also, a heck of a lot can happen in a year… I mean, I was still working back then! I didn’t even know yet that I was going to be laid off. If I could go back and warn myself, I definitely would… maybe that extra month of emotional preparing would have helped, who knows?
Then, if I look back even farther, like maybe 3 years or so … wow, what a difference! I mean, I definitely weighed less, but that’s not all. Gen and I had only been dating for 5 months! Crazy, right? We were still just getting used to each other and all of the people in each others’ lives. For example, I was still intimidated by the whole “girlfriend’s family” thing. I wanted so much for them to like me, and was always worried about impressing them. Now? Well, I still wanna impress them, but I am definitely a lot more relaxed around them. For example, just the other day, I was sitting comfortably in their house, dog sitting and chatting with my sister in law. Also! Back then, I still lived with my mom and still was in touch with some of my old friends that I no longer talk to. Wow, it seems like a whole life time ago! And that’s just 3 years ago! Can you imagine if I were to go even further back?
