I used to be deathly afraid of growing old. Old people looked so boring, and uncool. They couldn’t work DVD players, forget computers and for some reason they were just so freaking weird. Ever notice the older people get the weirder they get? Like, they just stopped caring that they smelled funny or really liked cats or liked talking to you about their hobby that you don’t care about and just decided to go all out.
I personally think when high school and college ends, people don’t feel quite the need to conform to their peers because they aren’t around them all the time. So they do whatever they want and live as they’d like. So they get really weird. No more standards to conform to.
So, I’m graduated from college now; it’s my time to enter into this post-school world. When I start getting weird, just let me know, point it out to me so I can know and change. But don’t say anything about the way I style my hair or the way I wear my clothes or my work ethic…oh or the fact that I’m always right, because I’ll probably just ignore you.
