TIME is a concept... a great man once told me, but-I never really understood what he meant and still don't really-but I'm sure I will one day. So if I can't share what he thinks about Time, I'll share what I think about it...
It's been a while since I've last written on this thing. I can't even believe how the time has flown by. I only have 2 more months of high school left...I can't even believe it. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was taking those dreadful first steps into Champlin Park's 04-05 school year, and now it will be all to soon before I'm taking those all awaited steps onto Northrup Auditorium's stage to get my diploma. 13 years of school...DONE. That's pretty sweet.
Kindergarten feels like a lifetime ago (well I guess it almost is...) but at the same time these past years seem to have just whizzed right by. So many memories, so many people, and so much change. It amazes me how time changes people. It changes who your friends are, your experience, your knowledge...it changes everything.
I found some old pictures today taken during Freshman year. They were of a surprise party I threw for one of my best friends, Sally. She was turning Sweet 16 (she was a year older than us), and I wanted her bday to be really something she'd never forget. Dang-she was so surprised that I think she almost peed her pants! It was such a fun time. But as I looked at the pictures I saw some things that weren't so strange at the time, but looking back-it's just weird. The people that were at that party-all hanging out together-it was just really strange.
4 years later... wow...I wonder how fast the next 4 years are going to come and go. I wonder what's going to happen, how we'll all change. We'll change for better hopefully, but undubidubly, some will change for worse. (Hmmm...I just realized this kinda sounds like a grad speech...sorry for whoever may be reading this-I know it's probably really boring, but the truth is -I don't really give a shit what you think! This is my blog!) Sorry -that came out of nowhere.
Anyway -I'm just sayin that Time goes by so fast, but good memories seem to slow it down for a brief moment. Ya ever notice that? It's like-most of the time, time is just flyin by and you don't even notice it goin, but then you remember a good memory and everything slows down for those few moments. It's a nice feeling.
So I guess what I'm really trying to say is-Make a lot of good memories and time won't slip by so fast-you'll have more to hold on to, more to remember.
