I went to get a sandwich today from a place that I used to frequent during my freshman year and it dawned on me that in two weeks I would be completing my third year of college. I’ve already clocked in three years of something that I used to not even be able to imagine. I always thought I would die before I went to college because I just couldn’t see myself being in college.
But the thing that really got me was that I’ve gone through freshman year, sophomore year, and junior year without even really realizing or acknowledging it. Years passed and apartments changed but none of it seemed to phase me. In high school each year was so different and I was constantly aware of the changes in my life.
What is it about being out of high school/18+ years of age that makes nothing seem real anymore?
