to say goodnight to your sleepy face in the lullaby of our favourite song
It’s been been a long time since twenty two
You looking any better
But then again I don’t remember
I’ve accumulated so much junk through the years.
Spent the last 5 days after exams picking through the countless boxes and drawers. Aghast at the amount of things that I will never use again… yet heartbroken at the prospect of losing these sad, forgotten things forever. There’s probably a story behind each and every one of these knick-knacks, and there must have been a time in my life when it had borne some importance.
I suppose I have changed. I have moved on. Proudly I say this; while shattered by the heavy reality of it.
From now on, only the simplest, most essential of them all gets a place in my life. Time and again I’m reminded of the trueness of the age-old adage ‘quality over quantity’, a piece of timeless advice that in my hasty days of youth have ignored repeatedly. Oh how I pay for it now. Not anymore though - a cluttered life, without clarity and purpose, isn’t quite worth living. I will remain faithful to just a few. Just a few.
Today, Emma Watson graduated from one of the most prestigious Ivy League colleges, Brown University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. She may be best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the movie adaptions of the Harry Potter series, but this young woman was determined to acquire an education—while simultaneously starring in 4 films (two of which were the last installments of the Harry Potter franchise). I just wanted to take a moment and praise Ms. Watson for her accomplishments. You don’t see her in the headlines for drug involvement or rehab or what have you. No. Some associations tied to her name include modeling, designing eco-friendly clothing, education, promoting positive body image, and supporting schools in Africa. To me, this is the epitome of a great role model not only for young girls but for anyone. To borrow a clichéd saying, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. Besides, English literature is pretty darn cool anyhow.
