It was good to have a goal.
Some things were easier then. For example, no one had invented multitasking.
Some things were harder. At least now I no longer have to decide whether to keep studying Sanskrit (nope), become a cobbler (good heavens, not anymore), break up with so-and-so (yes! what was I thinking? yes!).
I get to keep tons of memories (& pounds from all those hot fudge sundaes) but they weighs less than the brooding quandariness of my early adulthood.
So happy on a sunny Sunday.
