14+1

I’ve been fifteen for officially a week today, and I can tell you it feels exactly like 14+1 year. There’s no sudden epiphany that comes along with growing one year older, not to say I expected there to be one. But I can say, as most of you would agree, it’s certainly a time to reflect. As if I don’t dwell enough on the past as it stands, I like to take birthdays just to think about where I’ve been, and where I’m going. I didn’t have much time to myself on my birthday, between school, homework, and cheering on my teammates at their cross country meet (for those of you who hadn’t heard I’m out for the season due to a back injury.) In fact, my day was so busy and tiring, you could say I felt like the guy in the picture above…falling asleep in the birthday cake. 😉

However, in my little spare time, I did do a bit of thinking, and this is what popped into my head from Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird (by far my favorite book): “Neighbors bring food with death, and flowers with sickness, and little things in between.” In my opinion, years bring wisdom, experience, and the little things in between.

Well I just thought I’d update you all on what’s going through my head this beautiful autumn evening. Happy October!
