6 Months in South Carolina
I can't remember which milestone it was exactly - whether I had turned 18 or graduated from college - but I distinctly remember being young and in the fast lane when my Uncle Ray said to me, "Man, yesterday you were just a kid. It only goes faster from here on out." To someone who has been saying YOLO long before it was a tattoo, his words scared me more than I could let on. FASTER? Life could honest to God go more quickly after turning 18, after graduating college? No, there's no way. After those two important milestones, I mean, what else happens? My uncle must have had some exhilarating life where everything went faster because he was really busy or something. My life wouldn't be like that. Each day would be long, and my loved ones and I would live forever.
