Author's Note: I wrote this while reflecting on college life, and how it's different (read: better) than what high school was like. Ah, nostalgia... thanks for reading.

The Old Life
You miss the old life
for about the first three
seconds that you're gone
before the new way
starts to kick in.
Once you get there
and take a look back
you realize that you
don't miss the old life
all that much any more.
Because, anyway, it's gone.
