And then you get over it...

Not completely really, but I feel a lot better than I did this time last week. Thank you time.

Things like cold Pizza Hutt (couldn't help it. My Star Wars alter ego broke loose), sleeping in and Death Cab for Cutie make the day better.

Speaking of which...

"And all you see is where else you could be when you're at home. And out on the streets are so many possibilities to not be alone."
-Death Cab for Cutie-"Your Heart is an Empty Room"

I've been hit by another wave of restlessness. I blame it on the nice weather and thinking too much about what my life could be and is not at this point.

Every once in a while I look at where I am and wonder where I'm going? What's the plan here? Will I spend the rest of my college life living at home? What am I doing to try to move out and get a car? Not much.

Why do I still cling to the life I had in high school, wishing that I had it all back?

I miss the simplicity.

I was watching an episode of "Boy Meets World" the other day (man I miss that show). It was the college years (sad, I know). But they said something that made me think.

I think that the road just stretches out before me, dark and intimidating in places. There are lot's of potholes, but I can't see exactly where they are and that scares me.

Two weeks ago I hit a sunny patch, but it disappeared behind a cloud last week. Now I'm in a kind of partly cloudy haze, where the light breaks through in places in brief spurts.

But it's all good. I think that I'll get over this in a few days and be back to not caring that I spend my free time on the computer writing blogs like this.

Do not feel stupid for watching Boy Meets World...it's a nostalgic TV show and I watch it whenever I get the chance!

I hate the realization of knowing I'm not a kid anymore. This year has held a few of those moments where I've realized I'm an adult now. At least things like Boy Meets World can bring us back to childhood for a little while :)
