It's My Birthday + Some Weird Reflections

I'm 15 today, and it's honestly a bit hard to believe. This birthday really crept up on me, I've been really busy lately, and I suppose I just haven't put much thought into the fact that I'd actually be turning 15 today.

That 15, the one that means I'll be going to college in 3 more years, the one that means I'm already halfway through my freshman year of high school. Age is a funny thing, our perception of it is forever changing. Ages I have yet to reach look so distant, so unfathomable, but once I've reach them, they feel so normal, so regular, both young and old at the same time.

I remember a time when high school seemed so foreign, such a large, scary, thing in my future, but now I'm a high school student, and I go to a high school everyday, it's normal, though, sometime I still have little freak-outs about how close I am to college and leaving home. Haha, I'm not sure where I wanted to go with this piece, if I ever really wanted to go anywhere, anyways, by the time you read this I'll be 15, what an odd thought.
