For the first time in my life a few days ago, I was thinking that my 18 year old self would not have a well developed enough sense of humor to deal with me. I suppose this might sound like I'm saying that I'm disappointed with who I've become, but I think it's a more personal admission that life is what happens while you're waiting for something else to happen.
It's probably also a less succinct way of saying that kids are dumb. I don't mind that, though. It doesn't worry me. I don't mind having been dumb. It seems a lot of people my age are too hard on who they've been. But me, the scenery was great for all the backtracking.
And I haven't become half as conservative as I was told I would.
