Turns out I did know about Modest Mouse, but only one song. So I started listening to all the other suggested songs & found one that had a line that stood out to me.
Looking towards the future, we were begging for the past.
Here's the entire song if you want to hear it.
That single line, Looking towards the future, we were begging for the past, fits my life right now so perfectly. I am so excited for my future... for the tentative plans I've made & for the things I'll get to do. Yet, at the same time, I wouldn't hesitate to hit the rewind button back to January 9, 2012.
It's sorta funny really. I have a beautiful, shiny past (keeping things in the 2011 through 2012 vicinity) & I've got an amazingly bright future ahead of me. Working as a nurse and living where ever I want (post coming soon!). I just have to get through the next 3 semesters. I just need to find the happy medium between keeping my sanity & studying my brains out. I know it's doable, but I'm a little unbalanced on that teeter-totter currently.
So here I sit, in Price Utah. Looking towards the future, & begging for the past. I've got to find my happy place here. I've got to accept that this step is necessary in my quest for my bright, shiny future.
Adventure is out there! Maybe it's in my backyard, too.
