This is a Misplaced File
Taking your time
Enjoying life and making the most out of your energy and independence
Exercising the right to liberation and freedom
Needing the constant companionship of pals and true friends
Admiring sheer beauty but maintaining distance (crushes, flings, etc.)
Gaining a lot of flattery and new acquaintances
Engaging in new things and enriching one’s self-esteem and personality
Realizing your dream, revolutionizing the word “adolescence” and reaching the depths of maturity

Thoughts while reading this in 2014: I was an idealist and a bit crazy (gaining flattery?!? seriously?!?!). My thoughts and actions weren’t always in sync.
Side Note on the Misplaced Files: The Misplaced Files are poems, thoughts, rants, and musings that were written on pieces of paper, notebooks, napkins and textbooks from 1996 (freshman in high school) to around 2005 (fifth year in college). All rough, random and unedited – posted in varying chronology as an effort preserve what might otherwise be lost in a fire or by the very act of my mom cleaning out the closets.
