sunday scribblings: adult

What are your thoughts on adulthood? What do you want to be when you grow up? Are you scared of being an adult? Have you been forced to be the adult in a relationship? Do you have an adult child who won't grow up? Are you glad to finally be an adult? What do you think?

It's quite ironic that this is the question/topic since I've been doing a lot of thinking about this whole growing up thing for a bit.

I'm actually really looking forward to being an "adult" as I begin my final year of college. Now, my definition of being an adult may vary from the definition of others. I can't wait to be financially independent, done with school, in my own apartment.
I can't wait for the day when I purchase my own car; when I can buy things for a real apartment and home someday instead of for a college apartment (and therefore cheap, mostly).
I can't wait to pay my own bills. No seriously. I know that's completely weird but I can't wait. I mean bills that are not school related.
I can't wait to buy my first real suit, go to my first real interview.
I can't wait to be married and to have my own family and alllllll the stuff that comes with that.

I can't wait to grow up! I can't wait!

Growing up is WAY overrated. However, the years after college are the best ever. Those first years of independence and "adulthood" are beyond comparison. They are my all time favorite years of my entire life. Granted...I was living in Boston at the time...... ;-)
