I'm usually not into poetry, but I've always had an affinity for haikus. I think it's more challenging to work withing pre-set parameters than it is to "free style", but that might just be me.
I've worked out most of my family plans in terms of the holidays, and my birthday has been simplified down to "I'm not working around your schedule on MY birthday" so those plans were pretty easy to make once I decided that.
I will be 19. Freaky. It's the last of my teens, and I just realized that probably this time next year I will be at a vastly different place in life. Both physically and mentally. Once I complete basic training and tech school, the Air Force could put me anywhere. And I'd be stupid to think that my mindset isn't going to change as well.
Here's hoping that I won't be such a socially inept ball of awkwardness! Or at least, someone with less inhibitions. I always find myself holding back because of what my family might think, or because I just don't know how to handle situations, but hopefully if I'm in an environment where I can exist without the fear of knowing anyone it'll be a little different.
I wish I was a bit more like the character Jess from New Girl, which I know is a silly thing to say because she's completely fictionalized, but I admire how wacky she is, and how fearless she can be. I mean, I can only aspire to be that open with people.
|Wise words, Jess.|
Sounds like a pretty swell day.
