Yo, Life, slow down bro.

Hey fellow bloggers,

Exams being over, I've been doing absolutely nothing for the past week, and it's definitely nice, but it has its disadvantages; I'm alone with my thoughts.

I was looking through my old photos and there's this weird feeling in me (it's not nostalgia, I rarely get that one) but sort of a weird sensation that time is slipping away. I'm well aware of time passing and me getting older, but I kind of think that's the thing I fear most in life. I've got so much stuff I want to do, but not a lot of time to do it in.

Make a difference in the world, travel the world, become an immunologist, get a commercial pilot's license, run for MP under the new democrats, etc. I've got a lot of goals that I'd like to get done, and those are just the ones that are on my mind right now. It's kind of crazy.

I guess I've got to take it one step at a time, but I've got to say that this feeling isn't a pleasant one. All the friends I've made and the people I know are leaving residence, or have left already (some I didn't even get to say goodbye to), and not to be pessimistic, but chances are a lot of these people I will never see again! Facebook and Skype make the world a much smaller place, I know that, but it's still a strange thing to have to deal with this (I guess that's the downside of being an exchange student).

On the optimistic side though, I've always believed that it's not the physical distance between you and another person that should matter, but the amount of impact they've had on your life, and how they've changed you - because you carry that with you, ya know?



Oh well, I'm rambling right now. I've got to send a bunch of mail out tomorrow, and get a bunch of stuff done, and then I'm going to go into the City tomorrow night (possibly for the last time).

I'll post some more stuff later!
Life's too short... Travel the World!: Yo, Life, slow down bro.
