No, not THAT kind of adult edition; there will be no nudity in this post. I’m talking about being a grown up & having responsibilities + bills to pay, and answers to questions like “when are you getting married and having babies?” and “what are you doing with your life?”
I know I’m not the only one who loves receiving mail, but hates when it’s all bills I need to pay. And lately, it just seems like all of the bills are piling up and growing. I swear, they’re multiplying somehow. Blah.
I also feel like I’m at a point in my life where people are buying houses, getting married, having babies + getting pets to only increase bills and responsibilities….
Guys. I feel like I’m NOT EVEN CLOSE to having those feelings. I’m sure my anxiety doesn’t help either, but like… go away with growing up!
I’m 29 with the mentality of a 22 year old; I feel like I still have a few more years before I need to start figuring shit out. I know where I want to be in a few years (or rather, where I’d LIKE to be in a few years) and I’m working towards those goals. I’m not rushing to become a functioning member of the adult tribe just yet. I still have little personal dreams & goals that I want to accomplish. And it doesn’t matter to me how small or silly they are, I don’t think I’ll be able to call myself an “adult” until those dreams + goals are achieved.
It kind of bothers me when people are in a rush to grow up, too. I’ll overhear teens talking to their friends about things that shouldn’t even cross their minds until they’re 20! Talking about wanting kids and how they want to trap a man by having a baby with him – yes, this was an actual conversation I overheard while doing groceries one day.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!? SLOW DOWN.
Classic case of tortoise and the hare, here! Slow and steady wins the race (I’m totes the tortoise, incase you didn’t get that the first time). Ugh.
I’m taking my time to become an adult.
Deal with it, world.
