“I'm seventeen and I'm crazy. My uncle says the two always go together. When people ask your age, he said, always say seventeen and insane.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Hi. I'm seventeen now.
In the last few days of being sixteen, when everyone's asking you "are you excited?", et cetera, et cetera, I didn't really know what to say. Because, wow, sixteen was such a darn good year. I mean, of course there were days that were just blah, because it's life and that's how it works. But as a whole -- darn good, like I said.
I guess I just wasn't sure seventeen could quite live up to it. But every year is different. And seventeen? It's off to a pretty great start. (Honestly, really.)
Life is full of possibility. There's lessons to be learned from sixteen and new ones to be found in seventeen. And not to sound cheesy (cliches are mostly used because they're true, ya know) -- but living everyday to the fullest is not bad advice.
So the plan? The plan is this: live life & do the best you can.
