i never feel like i'm getting older until i arrive home.

i spend most of my time around people who are college age: either college-student-age or college-professor-age. It is often oh so easy to forget that there are people below the age of 18, or between the ages of 22 and 45. I forget home, where people are born and grow up and get married and have families and die, I imagine a world of immortal teachers and students. I think this is why I think I want to stay in school: the mad blended tidal force of denial and illusions, idealism and fear.
