I’m just chilling on my couch at home, not doing my research paper…
I haven’t felt this unproductive since freshman year.
I do not live my life in fear, because I believe that every action, every word, and every person that you meet in life has entered your life for a reason.
That is the one thing I don’t like about the way my parents live.
They are safe.
They are fearful.
They are prudent.
It’s funny how when I come back home for holidays, my life automatically changes back to how it was before I left college. Something about being in Sugar Land and being in my house makes me feel like I’ve gone 2 years back in time. I don’t like that.
I have a completely different and independent life in Austin, and that is who I want to be treated as. My parents always tell me that I’m always going to be their baby when I come back to Sugar Land. They need to know that as I grow in Austin, I also grow out of my life in Sugar Land. I’m sorry I can’t think that I am their baby anymore, even if they never stop thinking that. There will always be that dissonance, and I will never be able to help it.
