I have two things that I want to discuss with you guys today.  1:  I have been a bit youth obsessed lately.  2:  Most of my epiphanies/revelations take place during Glee.

I don't know why all of a sudden I'm really obsessed with youth.  Maybe it's because I feel like I woke up and just started feeling my age.  It takes me longer to look fresher, and it certainly requires a bit more products (ummm...hello erase paste from Sephora you magic maker).  I just feel like I get run down more quickly and I don't bounce back as fast as I used to.

I look at my sister and I look at her life and how free she is.  She has a really strong group of friends and they're always doing fun stuff:  going out dancing, shopping, out to dinner, bars, or just hanging out at each others houses.  They'll go on random road trips to nowhere and have amazing adventures.  I would never trade my life for hers, partially because I don't have the energy to keep up with it, but it makes me nostalgic for the times when I was like that; for when I used to burn as bright as the sun and I had my whole life ahead of me.  Mistakes were turned into legendary stories.  Decisions did not need to be made.  The world was open and I was ready for it.

I'm so glad I had so many wonderful, wild and carefree experiences, but that doesn't mean I don't ever wax nostalgic for those times.

When I first started at work there was a group of girls that I was so close with.  We would hang out after work and just talk in each others classrooms.  We would go out to dinner, see movies, go for coffee, and hang out on the weekends.  It was a blast.  As time has gone on, we've moved to different grades, different classrooms, made new work friends, gotten married, had kids, broken up with boyfriends and just generally moved on.  We're still close, but on a peripheral level and sometimes I get nostalgic for the easy way our friendship used to be.

What are you nostalgic about?
