What to do ?
They say: “You’re an adult when you miss your childhood like nothing else”. Damn, they’re right. I’ve had this blog since I was 19.
That’s a decade! Nearly!
And that was in my childhood! Nearly!
I created this blog to fit in. To be cool! It may sound weird, but in my time (always hated people for saying that) blogs were an absolute quantification of geek.
I don’t post on this blog anymore, and yet, I don’t want it to go. Every once in a while, a an automated task at blog.com reminds me that I don’t post on this blog anymore. It threatens to take away this relic from my past.
How dare it? It can’t take away my youth! I won’t let it.
But I should! I am not that person anymore. I can even fathom being that person in this instant. I have to let go of this younger me. Things are completely different now, and I need to see in front of me. That’s the way it’s meant to be. The road is ahead!
If that’s the way then, why do cars have mirrors? The road, is ahead…
I think I’ve found the answer. You can’t measure a distance if you forget the starting point. You may reach your destination, but what defines you is your starting point.
And this is why I will not close this blog! It’s a piece of me. I may have done stupid things at that time, and I may have hurt people, and I may have disappointed others, and I may have had way too much alcohol, but that’s the only past I have. And I intend to keep it!
So I want to raise a toast!
To all those who have done stupid things in their teenage years, Cheers!
