Something I've recently found is that change can be a lot harder to embrace after it's been around a while. Do you know what I mean? Especially the things you were rather excited about before they happened, with me it would be turning 18 and moving out. Both of which had or still have their good points, but I find that I can't help but miss the way things were before then. I know it's hard to believe if you're still in high school, but I'm sure there will be days when you'll miss the way things are. I'm not saying you'll miss everything, goodness knows I don't miss much of those four years, I still wish for the simplicity of the way things could be then.
Specifics I miss: The Gleam by the Avett Brothers, the cure of jasmine tea, baking muffins and biscotti all the time, warm oatmeal to wake up to, my warm sunny window, loosing myself in Robin McKinley's worlds over and over again, knitting while I read, staying up late writing when I was supposed to be in bed, Eisley, the deepness of dreams, at least two cups of tea a morning and one more at night, the parents saying no as a acceptable excuse for staying home, watching Pride and Prejudice at least once a week, how easy it was to hide, sleeping in on weekends, and regular library visits.
That's all for right now, I have a very early work day tomorrow, so I'm gonna say goodnight. But I do want to let you know I got a formspring! So now there's a clean way for me to answer your questions, ask me anything(I think I can handle it).

I think I do know what you mean, about change being harder to embrace even though it's been around a while. Of course, I'm anti-change period.

Ooh! I'll go ask you a deeply personal question on your formspring. ;) I've actually been thinking about getting a formspring. But I'm just not sure...

I have so much trouble with change! I would like to say I am brave and adventurous, but really I am very set in my ways! I try to enjoy the adventure of life as much as I can though. I miss being a kid sometimes but there are lots of fun things about getting older too~

I know just how you feel. It's a horrible yet wonderful feeling for me. Odd, isn't it?
