Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning - So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (The Great Gatsby, 2013)
So I am packed to go back to college but I’m trying to stay up so I can talk to my girlfriend when she gets out of work. So I was looking through my old yearbooks
Analysis: I was a pathetic 6th and 7th grader… almost no signatures. Then 8th grade I got bold. I had so many friends, mostly through helping through hard times. But, when I got to high school I lost contact with them. I was pretty confined to the football team, people in my classes, and the music school my freshman year. Then Sophomore year I branched out again through helping people. Junior year I continued to grow friends and help others. And senior year I was pretty popular and was the person people asked for advice, my gf at the time wrote the least in my yearbook(not at all). But just like when I transitioned into high school I have lost touch with most of them.
Realization: I helped a lot of people through problems, but either they got tired of me or I just got lazy.
I never hung out with people outside of school hours.
From freshman year to senior year it was obvious how disfunctional my relationship was.
I need to reach back out to people.
I won’t lose touch with people after college.
I don’t want to live a lonely life, with only stories and pride of helping others to keep me up.
I love my uncle Jim. I saw him for the first time since my 28th birthday, last night. We were catching up and he asked if I was still with the small girl. I said no. And he said “Oh good. I was hoping you would break up with her before college, you have so many better opportunities in front of you.” He is so right lol. I’m so happy with Melissa. We have a real relationship.
