“Everything matters so much when you’re 16. A whispered secret is an opera. A one word text is epic. A dirty look is drama, drama, draaaaamaaaa. Every minute of every day is so intense in a way that fades with time. I knew for sure that I had gotten really fucking old when thinking about all those vitally important issues from my sophomore year only made me embarrassed for my former self.” (Perfect Fifths)
Megan McCafferty pretty much sums up my entire teenage experience in those words.
I think I can safely say that I officially count myself a grownup. And I’m glad.
