Growing up I always wanted to be Robin Hood. I watched the movie (with Kevin Costner & Morgan Freeman) so many times that I could recite it by heart. For my 8th birthday, my mom bought me a bow and arrow, and I would walk around the neighborhood with it strapped to my back, patrolling.
A decade ago I roamed around the college streets of Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas. Just a young freshman at the time, I could never imagine I’d be back on campus over a decade later with a walk down memory lane.
At 18 one is still invincible, at the age where not only can they never envision their life in 10 years, but simply the notion being 10 years older is so far away it’s almost inconceivable, repulsive.
