There comes a time, after you graduate from the college, that you outgrow the “college life” and leave it behind. Meaning, you outgrow the way you lived in college–partying, staying up super late, making a fool of yourself, etc. You realize you are too old for it.
Tonight was the night that I fully realized that I am too old to act like a college kid. Don’t get me wrong, I love the friends I have that are still in college. They are nice people who are fun to be around. They are still young and should fully enjoy their youth. But I am not them, and I am no longer their age. No longer can I do the things they do. And frankly, I don’t want to anymore.
Tonight I move on from that life. I put it all in the past. I’m not sad about it because I would rather act 23 than 20. I would rather have responsibilities and privileges than drunken nights and hangovers.
