“Being 27 is parallel to being a newly post-pubescent teenager; so many feels, so many conflicting emotions, so much self-inflicted pressure. At some point, it’s just easier to pray you make it to 30 in one piece and resolve to figure it out from there…”

This is your youth, and it won’t last forever. Do the things you’ve always wanted to — tell that boy that you like him, tell that girl that you’ve loved her all along. Dance every dance, sing along to every song.

Are you prepared to be disconnected from “news” of the world that constantly refreshes with nothing real to report and from “friends” that share banalities to make you feel less alone? Are you prepared to be alone? Are you prepared for the quiet—the deep quiet—and the tiny new sounds that come with it?
