It's bewildering sometimes how time passes you by. I've felt like a kid for almost my entire life and then all of the sudden it hit me- I'm an adult. I'm not just a kid standing on another kid's shoulders wearing a trench coat and pretending to be an adult- I'm old and there's nothing I can do about it. I have one year left in the 18-35 demographic and then I'm no longer a cherished voice to most corporations and advertisements. Still- in many ways I embrace getting older- and hopefully wiser. I see the scars of my youth and realize that there is glory to making it through that turbulent era and feeling stronger on the other side. It may be a shock to realize you're no longer a member of the youth revolution- but someone has to chaperone that party, so it might as well be me.
