New Perspective

What is life? What exactly is it? I think it'd be a good idea that during times in my life, I redefine what I think 'life' is? Maybe after great moments, the many bottoms I'll hit, I'll check in. Rewatching one of my favourite child hood TV shows, One Tree Hill, had me thinking. It's funny because I just realised that all the music I listen to now, roughly 10 years later, are featured on the show. 10 years ago, I would have seen this very episode, this very scene. I guess it just continues to fascinate me how rapidly life changes. The last time I saw this episode, life was very much different. Some would say I was happier, healthier. Surrounded by things I was proud of. In a group of people I wanted to be around. It's scary. 

They say that the sense of smell is the greatest of all the senses when it comes to remembering events, objects, or people. For some reason, sound seems to be more suiting, coming from me. "Glad" by Tyler Hilton just played on the episode I'm watching. Feelings rushed back. I really don't know how to explain it. The people I thought high of, the guy I fancied, all flooded back. How a mastery of notes, specifically ordered, could cause me to feel some sort of way. 

I guess what I'm saying is, growing up is frightening. Are moments like these, the realisation of new perspectives, parts of life? Anyways I think I'll leave it here.
