Wordy Wednesday: Still Miss Yesterday

Hey there! I’M HOME FOR WINTER BREAK. Of course, I still have a term paper due Friday and a take-home final due Monday. But at least I’m working on these with Sammy curled up at my feet?

I also took a break from schoolwork yesterday to send a bazillion emails and wrap a bazillion gifts and eat a bazillion carbs, so things are going pretty well.

ALSO, over the weekend I had a new post go up on [art]seen, the event review blog I write for at U of M! I previewed Star Wars. Check it out here.

This week’s Wordy Wednesday is a poem.

**********

Yesterday I found myself
a place I’d been a thousand times
but I didn’t recognize a
single face there

It was still the same street,
with the same displays,
same concrete, but still
something felt different—
I realized it was me

And I’m not sure I like that,
not sure I want to see
what happens next in this
growing up thing

Last week I was,
who I’ve always been.
How is it possible now
I was someone different then?

And the world keeps changing
and it’s really scary,
and as happy as I am with today,
I still miss yesterday.

**********

Thanks for reading! (Finals are done on Monday. See you on the other side.)
