So I was invited out to Trivia night by some girls that I work with. They had told me that we would all be the youngest people in there by about 20 years. Well sitting there waiting one of the girls in the group celebrate their 25th birthday, it hit me. Wow almost 27 and these people have graduated college. They are on the road to their dreams. I am lucky I am doing it now but if I knew then what I know now, I would not take those moments for granted. I know I am only two years older but two years is a big difference in your 20's. You see things that you didn't then. Your eyes are more open and so is your mind. You appreciate things differently. Its just weird. While some at the table graduated in history and foreign politics others at the table are graphic designers and webmasters. Such a diverse crowd and so open to what you say. Its different but I was able to sit back and take it all in. Listen to each conversation and think wow these people are really our future. Now living up here I feel better knowing that at least some of our age group is educated. Some of our age group cares about the world and what is going on. (not saying that Texas doesn't, they just don't talk openly about it) I really can't wait to get into the college scene and start listening more.
