The Time Train
I wish I knew why I was such a sporadic blogger. I feel like I go through these periods of my life where I think "Wow, I really need to blog about that!" all the time...and then I have those other periods of life where I think "Wow, I really have absolutely nothing original to say." But today is not that day. Today, I have something to say. And while it might seem slightly pitiful, I thought it was a subject worthy to blog about.
My little sister has a boyfriend.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, my little sister (by more than half a decade) has managed to do in 6 months, what I have not been able to do in my 7+ years attending higher levels of education. Now I could sit here and mope and pity myself all day long, but that's not really what this is about...okay well maybe just a little. But really, it's about the fact that time is passing, and I'm just not sure I am ready to move on with it. Seven years ago when I left home to go to college, my little sister was still in middle school worrying about whether or not she was old enough to wear lip gloss and if the boy from kindergarten still had a crush on her. Now all of the sudden she is my peer and dating and flirting and looking for a real job and figuring out what she's going to do for the rest of her life. Is it wrong of me to want to pull the breaks on the time train and make it come to a screeching halt?? Yes I am well aware that my maturity and progression has yet to go anywhere with time passing, but what about everyone else?? ESPECIALLY my little sister? I don't know, I just don't know if I'm ready to face this reality yet.
