Young for My Age?

Sometimes I wonder if I should be more mature by this point in my life. I hate admitting that, but seriously, I'll be twenty-five this year and I still don't think of myself as a "real adult." I always thought by the time I was this age I would be a lot more mature. Here are some examples.

  • I didn't think I'd be having to save my money and worrying if I spent too much money on a cup of coffee or something.
  • I didn't think I'd still be worrying about going on first dates.
  • I didn't think I would still be eating tons of Easy-Mac and Soda and Candy and the other things that concern me.
  • I didn't think I'd still be up all hours of the night writing papers and reading textbooks.

Maybe I have unrealistic expectations. My life is a lot of fun, and I have it pretty good. I don't know; I just always thought being "grown up" would feel different.

P.S. Don't judge me for my music link. This song came out when I was in high school and got me through my first heart break...

Don't worry, I'm 45 and still don't feel like a grown-up sometimes.

Also, I thnk you'll know you're grown up when you could care less if someone judges you for your music link!

Enjoyin' the blog, keep it up.

regardless of age, everyone has day when they feel young and possibly immature. Also, everyone had a day when they feel like a grandma... LOL

I am 2 years away from 40 and I still feel young. I stay up late. I still write papers for grad school. I still do not have my dream classroom. As long as I keep evolving I can still be young at heart!

So can you!

i live in my hometown, and am still friends with several people who i went to school with. we often sit around and talk about how we still feel like we are in grade school and we're just playing at being grown up. i thought it might change when i had my daughter, but, she's 18 months old now and i'll be 28 in 2 months and it still feels the same. my mom always told me that you are only as old as you feel, and she lives that way too. i guess that's one reason why i don't worry about it too much. you're growing up just like the rest of us.

I'm 22, so yeah, still young- but it freaks me out sometimes that I'm an "adult" now. I mean, I have a real job. I'm engaged. I have a RETIREMENT account. It's just crazy!

I mean, things are fine- but I don't feel old enough for it all, if that makes sense.
