The other day I stumbled upon a blog post from All Groan Up called “I’ll feel like an Adult When…”
This realllllly got me thinking about being a “real” adult. I don’t look like an adult. I don’t act like an adult. But my age deems me as being a “Young Adult.”
- I pay my bills.
- I have a mortgage.
- I have a car payment.
- I vote.
- I go to the Doctor’s office alone.
- My insurance is in my name.
- I do my own grocery shopping.
- I have a career-type job.
So when will I feel like I’m an adult? What dictates that “step” from college-teen to entering adulthood to full-blown-actual adult? Is it maturity? Responsibility? Family? Either way – I’m not certain I’ll be an adult any time soon. I have my big girl pants on with responsibilities, work, and bills…
but as long as I still look 18
I will still feel 18
When did you feel like a real adult?
