Reflections of High Schoolers

One of my best friends growing up went out to eat with me this morning. It seems like there is an endless amount of things to talk about. So many people from our high school are already having babies and getting married. I feel ages away from any of that. How can someone get married at 19 or 20 years old? How about having a baby? It’s crazy!

It’s also interesting to see what decisions my classmates made; things like if they went to college or where they work now. Some of them moved to other states and countries. Others stayed here and work at McDonald’s.

Looking at myself, I feel really successful. Coming home has opened my eyes to the experiences I’m having. I just lived in Mississippi for a couple months, Texas for around 7. I’ve spend the last 4 years traveling around Europe and the US.

My life has been so rich in experience – I’ve been incredibly fortunate. Where will I be in 5 years? I have no idea! I know I’ll be moving to Charleston for a couple years but who knows what I’ll end up doing! Where I’ll travel to, the experiences I’ll have! It’s all so exciting!

The conversation I had with my old friend re-inspired me to live my life more fully. I want to go out and make my life full. I want to go out to the crazy festivals and go out to meet new people. I’ll have to remember this when I move to Charleston. There is so much to do!
