i feel like benjamin button today

I got a class ring a couple days ago. Apparently I've finished enough hours to earn one. And after Friday, I will be 3/4 done with my undergraduate career. This summer, I start looking in earnest at grad schools. Several of my friends have gotten and are getting married this year.

I'm 19.

Hence the Benjamin Button feeling. I am finally older than almost all the freshmen (there are still a few, darn them), and I'm about to be a senior. In college.

Where did it go? This semester was the first one that flew by. Seriously. I cannot believe there are only a few days left. It helps I have a tight group of friends here, which is a first. I'm actually in the group, not floating on the coattails of several groups. I've been asked out, almost kissed, driven thirteen hours round-trip into another state for a weekend, driven a friend to the hospital, slept in a hospital (twice), signed an apartment lease, turned in a writing portfolio. All in the past seven months.

Ever older and ever younger. I think that's going to be my life.

Don't worry, I don't think that feeling ever really goes away.

you're in the same situation I'll be in in a couple of years or so, I think. :)
