Kingston’s Journal: How I’m Recapturing Lost Youth

A photoshopped memory is better than no snapshot at all.

Auditioning for a talent show yesterday was no big deal to me. The kung fu demo I did was something I’ve done hundreds of times before, sure I’m a bit rusty as its been a while, but still.

What is important is auditioning is something I’ve never done before. When I was in high school I never had the presence of mind to get up on stage and show people what I could do. I performed plenty in front of complete strangers, but in front of school mates, I’ve come to realize I didn’t want to be brought into the limelight and be the talked about person in school.

I’ve always wanted to be the wallflower, same goes for never asking a girl out to prom. I’ve realized these things 6 years too late. The best that can be done now is to have the foresight now to do what needs to be done to prevent any further regrets later in life.
