Subject:reinvention for adaptation
Time:12:41 am
i've witnessed, almost from the 3rd person, myself in it's entirety, thrown into a completely new life. i watched as i had to accept the new place - my surroundings somewhat foreign. i watched as i adjusted to a new diet. i watched as my schedule, the times i function, shifted and extended. i watched as myself - the boy made from home and the people that were of my childhood and teenage years - interact with a completely new group of people. for the past 4 months i have been detached, overwhelmed by all that was new, and from that place apart i witnessed myself change immensely. my attitudes, my humor, my dialect - my entire self. and now, in the most recent days i find myself trying to reach myself. floundering in what seems to be my own ignorance - making myself blind by searching to deep for too long on too many occassions. it's frustrating, tiring, exciting, and extremely difficult.

it's time to pull it all together - i've imitated, i've assimilated and in the next five weeks i absolutely must innovate. with understanding what is of the here and now, i can adapt to what it demands: okay so this college life, and these past 4 months was how a high school boy detached from home reacted to it. it's time to be a college guy. it's time to be a musician. it's time to stop being just a dreamer and be a dreamer and an achiever.

in life there are great changes. with great changes come personal revolutions that inspire personal innovations (no matter how big or small).

it is the intellectual "survival of the fittest".

is it entirely possible that we can't seperate the person we were from the person we've become, or at least not entirely? we grow up at our own paces on our own time. some of us enter this new realm of college, and are surprised by the immaturity of it all, the surrealness of the reality that somehow exists. so as much as we assimilate and or innovate ourselves with those around us, it's entirely possible that, in doing so, we're losing a piece of what we were or should be. once you reach that conclusion you realize that the facade surrounding this our "frosh" year is nothing more than a pillow breaking the fall of those who need it. it's a way for those who are not ready for total independence can go away, and return home, changed, but not entirely. is it possible that many of those in college have forgotten those people of their childhood and teenage years in an attempt to become something better? why let go of everything to change everything.
