Heyy...

you know when people tell you not to try to grow up so fast? well, i don't try to.. i think i just do it naturally. With past events in my life, I've been forced with decisions i shouldn't have ever been pressured to make. My  decision literally was a matter of life and death, at age 10.  

But since then, i find myself longing to do things i won't be doing for at least 4 more years. And then i get slightly depressed. Anyways, so today- we picked our classes for High school next year. And you know how people say that high school is some of the best years of your life? Well, honestly, i don't want to go through high school. Somehow, i wish i could fast-forward, or even totally skip out on it. It simple does not interest me. 
Yes, I'm still interested in picking certain classes, and I'll admit, I'm kind of anticipating my new freshman status.. but other than that.. i want to go onto college already. i want to experience being an adult already, which ties into "growing up to fast" and i know some people will try to give me reasons why being an adult isn't that great and stay young as long as possible. Truthfully? i really don't care that I'll have to do things like work a job, pay taxes, balance a checkbook. reasons i want to be an adult? I can have a family. I can look back on my memories and see how every thing's changed. I can live, love, and laugh freely. 
Plus, people will stop saying I'm too young to know what love is, or using the phrase," you'll understand when you're older." Which leads me to another point. I hate those phrases. And you know why? Because 9 out of 10 times, I've already had more experience with matters of life than the person that it comes out of. If we're too young to know what love is.. than how do us "kids" give our lives to Christ? Or recognize his eternal love for us? And if we can't "understand" at our age, how has our generation survived thus far? 
This generation, my generation, we've lived. We've experienced. We've been through things- people older than us have never dreamed of. We KNOW what love is. We UNDERSTAND, quite fine, thank you. and even if this hasn't proved a point, then what qualifies (the ones who say these phrases) to say these like they DO know it..? 
that's what i thought.

Always,

thanks for following I really like your blog! Growing up is kinda scary for me. Im a freshmen in college...and I'm already reminiscing the days when I would go out in the yard and play for hours, in the rain, in the sun, in happiness, no cares, no worries, nothing to pull me inside, nothing to get me down. I'll never be there again. I want a wonderful future as an adult, but I loved being a child.

Makes so much sense and is so true! My parents don't understand some of those things and believe that I am too young to do and feel what they've never done until they were older than I am. They just don't understand.

Such a great post!

Have a nice day :)!
