The Deathly Hallows

I always wonder if in ten years I am going to feel similarly, about my life and the things I like, to the way I do now. I know that I will always be amazed by certain things. Books, for example, and their ability to whisk one away to different places and times. This was brought on by a recent re-reading of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Similar to the first time I read this book, the end of it has left me feel oddly about the future. I like certainty and the lack of it in this case really stresses me out. I'm at a point in my life where I'm just beginning to deal with real responsibilities. I'll be 19 in about 2 weeks, I'm looking for an apartment to live in next year and one to sublet for the summer, I'm trying to plan a trip to India, I'm trying to figure out how much money I will need to save in order to pay rent and car insurance for the next year, and to top it all off, I'm trying to figure out a schedule that allows me to graduate 2 quarters early, continue working, and retain my sanity. Imagine when I have to pay bills and stuff. Somehow, I've always been of the mind that the "next phase" of my life will be better and less stressful, but I am constantly proven wrong. I need to make an appointment with my academic adviser. Or potentially a therapist. Honestly, though, how am I supposed to concentrate on six more weeks of school with things like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, reading tons of books, and India in the future?
