Time is of the Essence

Completely casual today. This outfit I took out on a casual stroll with me down the mall. The stripes and the colors remind me of the U.S flag, a print that is on many people's fashion radar at the moment. Simple patterns like these actually call for clash I think.

I feel very youthful in this outfit. Speaking of youth, I have been doting upon the concept of maturity today. I know I actually woke up one day feeling more mature than I did yesterday. But how do we define it? I'd like to think of maturity as a completely human concept. Other animals seem to retain their pattern of thinking throughout their lives, but humans change. That's because humans are capable of thinking at higher levels - we're able to think about our thinking - all thanks to our fickle-friend, the frontal lobe. Animals, of course, don't have this higher cognition we do. I believe that maturity is when we abandon our base-level thinking such as I'm hungry, I want that, I'm bored to higher-level processing. I saw a child today who was crying over a toy and the adults rushed to soothe him and alleviate his seemingly burning and desperate desires. When the boy grows up, he'll look back at this incident and shudder at how immature he was. This is why as we grow older, we encounter less embarrassing situations.

But I might be wrong. What do you think?
