Out Of Steam

I feel as if so many of my posts lately reference my weary state and you would think that the simple fact that I'm acknowledging that would be sign enough for me to sit my ass down somewhere and rest, but I'm not there just yet.

Today, we took my cousin-in-law to college. It was a sweet day, rife with laughter and, of course, there were a few tears. I feel so removed from the atmosphere that is academia, but it's so funny how much things don't change. I also don't relish sleeping in a twin bed ever again.

I can't even begin to wrap my head around what it's like to be on the precipice of so much. Life zips by us so fast and though its cliche, if you blink, you might miss it. You have to always remind yourself to hold on tight and throw yourself at living head on.

*apologies for any typos or incoherentness, writing this on very little sleep from my cell phone.
