Ten Thousand Spoons

People say that life has a tendency to be like that Alanis Morissette song.

Back in the days of old when grades were second to fun, I didn't really know what they meant by that.

I had expected that when life does hit me with ironies, the feeling would be a revelation. A moment that would make me see in slow motion. A moment that would make me smile to myself while cinematic music deafens my ears.

Or something.

Instead, I get bittersweet chuckles of nostalgia. I get a glimpse of the past and see how the present is no different.

A few years ago, I had that sinking feeling in my stomach that established my fear and excitement for college. That very same feeling is with me now as college nears its close.
