Youth is something that we all take for granted; once we're older youth is nostalgic.
When I was younger I couldn't stop staying the phrase "I wish I was older" because I was so obsessed with the idea of growing up and adulting. It's ironic because now I can't help but think every so often, "I wish I was younger." I don't think it has hit me yet that I'm 18 years old and technically an adult. I don't feel 18 because I still live a pretty sheltered life; I don't have to work to provide a living for myself and I'm still in college, learning, growing and changing. I know that I still have the luxury of acting like a child in many ways and for that I am extremely grateful. I also have my parents to thank for this because they are the ones that have provided me with so much.
