Age, Maturity, and Problems

The older I get, the more I realize how much age doesn’t define maturity or common sense. I’ve seen and heard and experienced so far heartless, absurd, rude, (and whatever other terrible word you can think of) things people have done. I won’t say I’m the best human there is in the world, and I have my faults too. But sometimes, I really just want to grab people by their shoulders and shake them till their selflessness comes out. I sometimes wish people would just realized, “like wow, shit, the decision I just made was effing messed up”. And, that they would do something positive about it to remedy their decision (and I’d hope people would do the same for me when I screw up).

I’ve also learned that we can’t control everything. I’ve relinquished my grasp on a few things in my life. And then I see things spiraling out of control. I guess it’s just all about finding balance on remedying the problems in our lives.

Edit: I realized I’m also terribly impatient and want to get problems resolved in a timely manner. I always forget that the world operates on it’s own time - not just the timeline I put onto myself.

I think one of the craziest things to think about is that nearly all on campus design positions / lead design positions at UCD are taken up by my fellow design classmates/seniors. We all literally started with minimal knowledge of the field and we’ve taken over the campus within 2-3 years.
