Where have you gone my reckless and irresponsible youth?

Did I forget to have it? Sometimes I feel like a 30-year-old waiting to happen. Others keep refraining how amazed they are that a 21-year-old is so self-reflective and so serious about schoolwork and life. I like to think that I am living a mindful and fulfilled life even at the age of 21. There is no reason that my life at this moment should be invalidated because I am just waiting to grow up. I am living.

That said, I maybe take things a little too seriously and should let loose more often. For sure. Taking more risks and having a little more fun couldn't hurt anyone as long as I am just mindful of it. The two can coexist for sure. By no means do I want to get drunk to the point where I don't remember anything; that has no appeal to me. But why not be the life of the party? While I am by no means a 9-to-5 drone, I could loosen up a little.

Now where did I put my dancing shoes?

A reckless and irresponsible youth is in large part a myth.

You don't take risks with alcohol, but you do take risks everytime you write, everytime you share, every time you open a part of yourself to the rest of us.

There are plenty who would consider that reckelss.

Thankfully, you're not one of them.
