“I miss being 20…I felt everything so strongly.” -My Dad
As I approach the end of my teenhood, (I turn twenty in about a month) I think about what it really means to be young (a “young adult”). Yes, I feel everything very strongly…it’s like all my senses (hearing, sight, smell, taste) are all the same, but my emotions are heightened. When I’m sad I am so miserable I can’t stand to live, and when I’m happy I’m so elated it’s like time is frozen. Being 20 is like being a raw piece of meat, and everything you feel you feel SO HARD. Not to mention everything is a contradiction when you’re twenty. I’m sensitive, but I have a thick skin. I’m an easy going person, but I’m always feeling anxious. I’m a free spirit who always needs a gameplan. What’s wrong with me?!?!?!?!…..I’m twenty.
