Freshman Past, Freshman Present
Let’s admit it. We have made and done a lot of stuff in the past that we regret. We have also done a lot of stuff in the past that we will surely never forget. Though in the midst of all this nostalgia about our so-called important events like breaking-up, standing up again and so-on and so-forth about the relationship stuff, there have been a lot of things that have changed. Think about it for a second, what were you in your past years? And to put more emphasis in the change, what are you now?
Well, lemme tell you a little background of what has happened to me in the past which is a bit personal but heck, I’ve shared a lot of personal stuff with y’all in the past right? ;) I just hope I don’t regret writing this down! Just kidding!
Anyway, it’s been almost four years since I’ve ended my freshman year in high school and just recently, I’ve just ended my freshman year of college. Upon a bit of analysis (or reflection, whatever you call it), I’ve found out that almost everything about me has changed. For example, my height and my inability to play basketball! Back then I was just this 4 feet 11 inch boy that hardly knew anything about playing basketball and now, I’m this 5 feet 5 inch guy that can regularly hit mid-range J’s with a slight consistency (I still suck though). But as I’ve said in a post I’ve done back then, there’s still this certain essence or role in a person that doesn’t change whatever the hell you do. And as you might have guessed, I’ve found out mine. It isn’t gaming. It isn’t video-making, sports, writing or music either. It’s telling stories and sharing my life. I never noticed it before but after taking some stress of my head and being nostalgic for a moment in time, I’ve realized that inspiring people and making people move-on has truly been my role and I doubt that it’ll change anytime soon.
Anyway, enough of my life and more on the observations.
In our current time, life’s been hard. Technology continues to improve and improve. Innovation’s taking a huge up-heave. Economy’s getting crappier and crappier. Education is simply becoming some sort of bad yardstick for intelligence and potential and love has been but an aging tale of fantasies and inconvenient lies. And subjects in school are simply become a pain in the butt. God, a lot has really changed in the years! And as we age and as we realize the different ironies this life has to offer I hope we don’t forget that our parents age too. Albeit a lot of the youngsters these days don’t even pay dividends to those that gave them life so yeah, that’s another change too. In addition to that, the general taste of musical rendition in the world is asunder. Imagine that in a span of four years, there’s actually been four (according to my belief) huge changes in musical taste for us teens! From Pop to Rock to Soul and now Party Music (which I can’t seriously compared to true RnB)! Heavens, what has the world become?! If back then it was a little off, and now it’s as good as a broken glass what might happen in the future years to come?
Well, let’s hope Freshman Future can answer that. And I hope the real change comes soon. A change that’ll hopefully benefit mankind.
