For those of you who are adults – do you feel like an adult? At what point in growing up did it hit you that you’re a grownup? Officially and all?
I’ve never been one of those self-assured children (or adults) who have their ducks in a row at all times. I feel more confident now about most things. However, I still have moments of social anxiety, awkwardness, and uneasiness. Still, in general, my 30′s have been good. Quite good really.
It wasn’t until recently that I’ve succumbed to the notion that I’m all grown up, an official adult.
The moment it hit me... the moment I knew that I’ve officially become an adult happened while watching Hunger Games. Josh Hutcherson. Don’t get me wrong, ‘Peeta’ is cute – but a heartthrob? No… not so much. He’s a baby. Oh geez – Of course he’s a baby. This movie is marketed to teenagers.
I wonder if my mom had a similar moment when Crystal and I were ohhing and ahhing over ‘Zach’ and ‘Slater’?
