"Mozart composed his first symphony at eight years old. Shakespeare was married at eighteen and completed his first play at twenty six. My grandmother carried life in her hips at fifteen and had three declarations of young love by the time she was nineteen. My grandfather had barely gotten over puberty when he took his first trip- a tromp over unknown countryside with a gun on his back and a stained uniform as his only clothes. I am twenty and all I feel like doing is falling asleep until the Earth’s completed another revolution of the sun."
