"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think."
I’m in a strange stage in life. I still have one more year of college left (yes, it’s taking me 5 years) which is going to include a year long teaching internship. I’m watching so many of my friends graduate this year, and so many of my friends get engaged, and watch people get accepted to grad school.
And here I am, just trying to finish school. Just trying to figure out what I want out of a relationship.
There is so much pressure right now to be in a serious relationship, to be thinking about getting engaged. And honestly, I’m just not there yet.
I am not good with thinking about long term commitment. Possibly because I haven’t been with anyone that I am 100% comfortable thinking about that with. Possibly because I don’t really think that marriage is worth it. Possibly because I’m only 22 years old.
For some reason your early to mid twenties seems to be the time that everyone expects you to be settling down into a serious relationship and thinking about marriage.
Have we forgotten that our brains aren’t even fully developed until about age 25?
Stop making it seem like we have to make these insane, life-altering decisions of who to spend the rest of our lives with when we are still young.
"I live in another world, and if you come near me, I will wrap you in it like a cloak of stars."
"How long they choose to love you will never be your decision."
We dated for a year and a half, and I’m pretty sure you couldn’t name any of my favorite things…
Except what I liked in bed.
And you wonder why things didn’t work out.
who’s arms would I run and fall into
if I were drunk
in a room with everyone
I have ever loved"
