Growing up as the youngest I had always envisioned this unattainable maturity. I always thought that once I reached a certain age I’d have my act together. Obviously, however, as the youngest child there was always someone ahead of me. Therefore, it became an unattainable goal to reach because just as I was reaching that level everyone else was already on the next level.
The reason I mention this is because I thought college would be the moment when I finally felt I reached this maturity. This would be the time where I would know everything and get my act together. College, especially when I was younger, had this connotation that this was where everything changes and gets real. Up until about now, this notion had never really hit me.
But it just did.
