09:51 pm - being old and boring is pretty bad
i used to think about things that mattered. when i had slumber parties with friends, we would talk until morning about heaven, love, and the purpose of life. i would read books about it and think about it until my thoughts became so complicated that i had to read again to find answers. i felt like i wasn't willing to have a conversation unless it felt "important."
now all i seem to talk about is graduate school, work, or what my or my friend's plans are for the near future.
i talked with someone yesterday that gave me a glimpse of the sort of conversations i want to have with people. he also gave me a glimpse of the way i want to live my life.
i want to end every day feeling like i took every opportunity to experience everything there was to experience. i want to go to bed exhausted and hungry for tomorrow.
