You see, Santi made me think that I could do anything. It didn't help that my father supported me as well in anything and everything that I wanted to try. I graduated from college at 25 years old. I hung out with some younger people so, I thought I was younger. My father died when I was 26 years old, almost 27 and I looked about 10 years younger. I worked as a secretary that didn't need a bachelor's to get. I think that this is when I lost my decade. Hanging out as an alumni member of my sorority with younger women diluted me into believing that I was ten years younger than I actually was.
I remember the pop music. As an older person I was hypnotized by The Backstreet Boys and later on, NSYNC. Man, did I love the grunge stuff too! I'm telling you, I was convinced, CONVINCED that I was younger than I actually was. Justin Timberlake's solo album came out 2002. I think that the official lost decade was when I was 23 to 33. I think I just reset and then at 33 I went off with life as if I was 23. In this decade long bubble I had a blast. It was quite the transition!
I'm thinking of transitions now. I can't afford to lose another decade. It's really crazy the stuff that is coming up but I am calm and excited to see what is the next transition. Praise the Lord!
