It gets very frustrating, how people get married so young in Utah, I've mentioned it several times, but I will again and again. It's depressing that I'm barely 23 and I'm already one of the oldest unmarried people that I know. It's become painfully clear being back at school, I've discussed "Digital Recon" before, and more and more my results have been disappointing. The most frustrating thing is that the situation is perpetual and unbreakable.
The day you graduate high school it's like a giant liquidation sale starts, only with people rather than things. If you don't buy right away, the the quality merchandise starts to sell-out. You can attempt to shop around for a better deal, but if you can't find one you may find that, when you get back, what you wanted is sold out. Of course there are some quality pieces hiding on the wrong rack but they become harder and harder to find. One can always check back from time to time to see if anything comes back in-stock as a result of refund or exchange, but that could take even more time. The problem is that you're under so much pressure to buy right away, because if you don't you may miss your chance.
It's interesting to walk into either of my two classes that are still considered generals and see that about 90% of the fingers I check already have a ring on them. It's a little depressing to think that I'm taking a big risk putting so many of my eggs in Hannah's basket, that if things don't work out when she gets home I may have to either scramble, catch someone the second time around(hey the divorce rate in Utah is above 50%), or go for the freshly graduated. It's something I try not to think about, I would say that is where my "faith" is strongest, that I'll still be able to find happiness regardless of what happens, that I can't force fate.
