As i sit here, working away on summative work, i look up and see my year 12 formal information and university open day information and i think 'good god where has my little youth gone?'. Days of simple colouring in homework and cuddles with my mother on the couch. Gone are the days of such fun things and in comes the scary horizon of life. Well I myself feel quiet overwhelmed, I wonder at times like this; is this how Alice felt when she fell down the rabbit hole? Or did Odysseus fear this much after 10 long years from home? No. I highly doubt either of them felt this way but they did feel something, just nothing like I'm talking about. Fictional or Historical figures aside I must confess that as excited as I am for my future, my life to begin, I will miss this life. Miss it more than I could really even realise.
But! it is important to live on and long and all other good things can now come into my life. So i bid you farewell sweet, innocent days, and I welcome my future with open arms and a shaky smile. But I shall revisit those days of innocence by cuddling my mum, colouring in when I'm stressed and being just plain childish. Why? because its what I enjoy.
So onwards and upwards into the rest of my life!
Sleep well friends and we shall talk again soon
