Grey … the color of our brains and the limbo between black and white. That’s where I am, stuck on the verge of doing something great, feeling like I have so much potential bubbling inside me, and I’m just waiting for it to boil over and summer on the outside. Did I picture my life at 25 how it is now? No. Probably because I idealized my life at age 12 and thought 25 was so far away, but it’s hard telling my 12-year-old self she was wrong.
Forrest Gump may have been right when he said “life is like a box of chocolates,” but I wish that box was a Whitman’s Sampler – equipped with an instruction manual!
