Maybe it’s time I stop replying with “You’re only young once.” Youth is not an excuse – perhaps better to say you wanted to do something because it was yours for the taking. But what does that say about how we make our decisions? A lot of us are familiar with the idea of “reckless youth,” but what is it when the youth wears off?
I’m aware of how young I am; this is just something I’ve been thinking about for a while.
Youth. On a somewhat related note, my friends and I were around a lot of high school kids (and their parents) at the concert last night. Seeing their attempts to be independent individuals while being dependent conformists made me realize something: We are getting a bit too old for pop-punk shows. We are no longer a part of that target demographic, or we’re at least starting to break away from it.
