Have you ever noticed how fast time goes by? I am almost eighteen and I feel like I have spent my whole life in school, not even learning the right way or even anything that is truly important or meaningful. Eighteen years of almost nothingness. I have not traveled any part of the world nor crossed anything off my “Bucket List”. I feel like there is no time for me to do what I actually am passionate about. My life has already been laid out for me: school, graduate, college, earn a degree, get a “good” job, get married, have kids, move to the suburbs, retire, die.
I don’t want that for myself; but sometimes I don’t want to venture away from that plan in case I mess up everything for myself. I just want to learn, travel, and be happy. I’m just afraid that if I choose one thing I give another thing up. Why do we have limitations? In reality we do, no matter what anyone says. As you grow old there are things you just aren’t able to do anymore. I don’t want to look back on my life and regret the decisions I made.
