Reminisce on the Old Days

21 Feb

“Yesterday our troubles seemed so far away, I believe in yesterday.”

First, I wanna wish my dad a happy birthday! Woo hoo! I have no idea how old he is.. haha. Oh well, Hau`oli La hanau Makua kane (Haire inspired me to throw in some Hawaiian in there.) Anyways, tonight Katie and I decided to drive around and pick up cans (I decided this and I made her come with me) and it was awesome ’cause we found like ten cans, and maybe even more! We’re just trying to do some good for the environment. And make a little side cash.

Speaking of of side cash, I got a tip yesterday! It was super cool cause I’m a hostess and they don’t usually make tips, but one of my take-out orders gave me a two dollar and some change tip. Also, four slices of chocolate pie had to be discarded, so four of us had a piece of chocolate cake and hung out a bit before we clocked out. It was a good day at work.. :o)

I do kind of miss childhood. Maybe not even childhood, just being younger. In about four months, I won’t have any specific age to look forward to, cause I’ll have already achieved that golden age of legality. I dunno, I just like being young cause I feel as though I have a pretty youthful personality, even though my outlook on things is mature (I don’t sweat the small stuff.) But there’s so much to do in this world, and I want to do it now! I want to do it while I’m young so I can feel fulfilled with what I’ve accomplished already in life cause there comes an age where you’re mentally and practically physically bound down to the life you lead. Granted, retirement will come (for some of the lucky ones,) and you’ll be able to pick back up where you left off decades ago, but by that time, life will have taken its toll on your body and you may not be able to fully appreciate certain things like you’d be able to when you were young. Obviously this scenario goes both ways–there are certain experiences that you can’t fully appreciate until you’ve lived life and whatnot. I’m not gonna go into detail, because I’m sure you guys know what I’m talking about, but these are the kind of things that plague my mind before I go to sleep at night and keep me up for hours. I think my hyperactive female mind is the cause of my sleep deprivation, but that, too, is a completely different story!

Well, I essentially wrote this because I was really bored, but I didn’t really have anything I felt super compelled to write about. Therefore, I give you this blog. Hope you like it, I think I do!
