Friends Coming Home
After we all graduated
And it was the end of the Summer
Friends started to go away
And that really was a bummer.

You try to talk to them
Every day online or on the phone
But still days will pass you by
When you feel all a lone.

But now the time has come
For your friends to all arrive
Counting down the days
I think it’s down to five.

When you see their face as
They’re coming off the train
You realize that without them
You would surely go insane.

So enjoy the time you have together
Enjoy the time you share
Because its always important to show
Your friends how much you really care.

Taking Chances

     All my life I’ve sat around letting opportunities pass me by and thinking that rushing home from a college that’s ten minutes away and than taking naps as soon as I get home is going to get me anywhere in life. But yesterday when I decided to take the 3 mile trek home from school I had an apiffany that if I want my life to go anywhere I’m going to need to take some action.

     I always thought the safe thing to do with life is to stay put where I’m at and be content with what I have but as I bear witness to everyone’s adjustment to college life and new beginnings I realize I don’t really have that and I want that. Besides rushing to catch a train to a different school with more work than I ever had before I still live in the same house, the same town and I can’t expect to have a different life if everything around me is the same.

    It’s always easy to say you’ll do something and than never do it. We’ve all done it with homework assignments or talking to that one person we randomly develop a crush on. But saying you’ll do something and actually doing something are two different things. I’ve been putting off change since the very beginning of senior year. I had it in my head for some reason that I should major in a career that I have little interest in and went to a school I knew nothing about. Well, enough with being safe. Life isn’t about being safe. I like to believe people that are truly happy only got their because they had to take some chances along the way and I think I’m finally ready to take those chances.

     So before I ramble on until no end and Chris reads this and does his little victory dance to see that he was mostly right I know very few people are probably ever going to read this but I want this to be the week that I remember that changed my life. I want this to be the week that my mindset on life has changed and I finally became ready to plunge into life. I want this this to be the week that was the beginning of me being truly happy. I have a long way to go before my life is where I want it to be but I think I’m finally ready to start taking the road that leads me there.

A Rewind Button or A Future Machine?

          Opening up a new chapter in your life seems to make you wonder two main things. Where has the time gone? and Where will the future lead me? Thinking about this I  have to wonder if we had the power to either travel back in time or look into the future which one would we choose.

          The past is something that is never coming back and the only connection to it are fond memories of what our lives used to be. If we could travel back in time reliving the same moments would we feel bored by the feeling of repetition or would we enjoy our fondest memories as much as we did the first time? I personally think reliving certain events would be kind of rewarding sometimes. It’s like your favorite movie where you can watch it a number of times and still enjoy it. Than again sometimes in life don’t we feel like we’re living a little deja vu anyway.

         The future is a little more tricky. After all the future is very unstable unlike the past which will remain the same for all of eternity. If our futures were planned out only by what our actions are now would we be happy with the consequences or would we feel like some changes need to be made with our lives in the presence?

          For me I don’t mind a little predictability and repeating now and again. A rewind button to relive my fondest memories of high school and life would be my choice at this point in my life but that is probably just because of the fear I have of the unknown that is the future. Well these are the thoughts that flow through your head when your waiting for college to start and most of your friends have already started. Sorry to the few of you who have to read through this haha.

Friends

I guess its true what they say. “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” With friends leaving for college goodbyes can be rough. When you find a group of people that you truly connect with stay in touch and make sure you treat each other right. Some friendships are fake and others are real. Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish between the two but it is important to stay in touch with people you really connect with because good people are hard to come by in this world. As my friends are off at college enjoying themselves for the most part and I’m at home awaiting a new beginning I can only hope that I meet friends at college as great as the ones I already have. Wherever the road of life may take you I believe it really is impossible to be truly happy and alone. Friends are what get you by the day whether it’s just talking to them online or getting a bite to eat nobody would be anything without their friends
