People say that there is nothing fun about getting older. I disagree. I partied in high school, did some crazy stuff, went to college got a real job and got married. I can say that some days I think back to carefree youth and miss my days of inhibitions. But looking back on all of it I only ever miss the idea of it. When I actually truly think back on all the hell I’ve seen I don’t miss it at all. There was nothing fun about dating a creeper guy, or going to parties that got broken up by the cops. I would actually prefer to never had to speak to another police officer again in my life if I can avoid it. From my experience you don’t want the cops looking for you; just as you don’t want to need something from them either. Yet in our minds for some reason we look back on the past as if it was amazing place to be. I’m not sure why the phenomenon occurs but I think it’s a universal feeling of people. There is something amazing about a memory. It’s special if something happened that mattered enough for you to carry the sentiment around with you. No one clings to memories about buying gas, or going to the bank, or making dinner. People choose to remember events, people places and things that affected their life in some way. Some memories are good while others are bad. But the secret is that every experience you have will shape the person you become. So I decided to share a video. The song is The A Team by Ed Sheeran. You get bonus points if you can tell me what the song is actually about.
