would it be nice?

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?

Then we wouldn't have to wait so long

And wouldn't it be nice to live together

In the kind of world where we belong

You know its gonna make it that much better

When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up

In the morning when the day is new

And after having spent the day together

Hold each other close the whole night through

The happy times together we've been spending

I wish that every kiss was never ending...

Wouldn't it be nice?

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray... it might come true

Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do...

We could be married and then we'd be happy,

Wouldn't it be nice?

You know it seems the more we talk about it

It only makes it worse to live without it

But let's talk about it...

Wouldn't it be nice?

naivety is the name of the game for tonights post, or at least the first one.
things come and go. people come and go. my mom used to say "friends come and go, but siblings are here forever." i have never disagreed with the first part of that comment, but some friends do "come and go" while others, the true ones, are with you forever. it may just be in mind or spirit, but they are there.

anyhow, straying form the point.
which, is this: they say "you're only young once." BUT, I feel as if I have not aged a bit (other than physically) since I was in high school. No one around me has aged either. Not family, nor friends, not even Larry King! lol

Yes, things have changed, time has passed and life has gone on. However, I still feel like me, with more experience, more knowledge, and less innocence. It's good and bad. But it is what it is. (Probably the best line ever written or spoken, because of it's honesty.)

But, the point I have strayed from once again. I am just going to be blunt here. Again, it is what is is and if it hurts someone(s), well, so be it.
"Wouldn't It Be Nice" was kinda the mantra of our relationship. That being the first of my serious relationships. How naive. I will always hold a place in my heart for her, and if we met today, both of us single, there might be a chance that we would hit it off. But, for reals-z's, it is what it is. No regrets.

FINAL THOUGHT: I have been far too focused on life to worry about school or work lately. But, is it not life that we are living? School, work, and everything else are mere details that make up out LIVES.

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

It's reflections like that that prove you have aged, or matured perhaps is the better word. Time is a funny thing like that, sometimes you feel like what you're waiting for will never come are anxious with anticipation. But most times, it's too fast...there isn't enough to do what you want in the moment, to learn from mistakes immediately, to make a different life choice that may shift the entire outcome of your future....
I like the mindset of it is what it is (as long when it's in reference to your life in general that it is not said with a subtext of regret). When I wonder how my life would be different, I always think about time traveling movies like Back to the Future. The characters go back to change things for the better but for the most part fuck it up. Life is meant for moving forward because chances are a change in your past, wouldn't be a happier result.
