What would you do if you survived being hit by a bus, would you live in fear or joy? Fear of being so close to trauma? or joy of being lucky and surviving? Tony (from Skins) seems to be acting on the former.
I was just rewatching some episodes from the Skins series (UK) and it just hit me (no pun intended)! Two and a half years have flown by since I last watched Skins. But not only that, two and a half years since I was in high school; two and a half years since I was lusting after smelly teenage boys. And now here I am, in my bed in an apartment with friends I have accumulated only within the past year. How does time fly by so quickly? Why haven’t I taken the time to reflect on these moments and cherish them while they last? I’m sure I will be somewhere fantastic in two and a half years time, but will I look back on this moment and see it as lost? I sure hope not. I always try to really encapsulate the happiness I feel in the moment and enjoy it and store it for times when it is lacking. Looking back on my past, I’ve been blessed with so many great opportunities and people but only few really stick… do you know what I mean? I live for fleeting moments and once in a lifetime experiences, but do you ever wonder which ones are meant to last?
Just some food for thought for everyone! Also, if you are an angsty teen and want to start a new series, definitely check out Skins (UK)! 🙂 Enjoy xxx
