A Box of Chocolates

17 Sep

This growing up business sure isn’t easy. One minute you feel like you’re on top of the world, that you’ve got it all together, and the next you feel like you’re spiraling out of control. You feel like you’ve got it all figured out, but then suddenly you realize that you don’t know half of what you thought you did. You feel like things are going your way, but then you find out things are changing.

Life is a crazy adventure. It has its fair share of ups and downs, hopefully more ups along the way. When you’re young, all you want is to grow up and be an adult, but once you get here, sometimes all you want is just to be little again. It’s hard to be completely satisfied with where you are in life.

Forrest Gump was completely right when he said that life was like a box of chocolates, because you really don’t know what you’re going to get. You can make all these plans and have goals, and none of it could come true. Things change, and you wish they didn’t, but it happens. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. And you just never know what’s going to happen next.

Sometimes I wish that I could be forever in elementary school, with no major problems or worries. Enough responsibility and work to do that I wouldn’t get bored, but still enough ignorance and innocence to be left unjaded and unphased by the world.

In other news, I’m off to my first day of work today. Hopefully I won’t oversleep and be late.
