The Troubles of Growing Up

April 28, 2009

untitledso…I am 19, legally I can smoke, drinking, have sex, vote, drive a car, watch the 18movies ooh and buy matches, though I did get asked for ID for buying matches the other day in CoOp, but sam the sales man said he would remember me next time for any further purchasing of matches. Thanks Sam.

Anyway the point I’m trying to make is dispite being viewed by most people and our government as now being a responsible adult, how is it i still feel like I should be at school. I don’t think I’m ready to be let loose on the world, who knows what damage my small girl feet might cause. Yet saying that I am sooooooo desperate to be free, to be grown up (whatever that means). My boyfriend tells me I’m a beautiful young woman. Trouble is I still feel like a girl. I wonder if their is a day you wake up and like TA DA your a woman! Probally not…maybe I don’t recognise the person I am becoming yet,

oh well suppose i will just have to get over it that.
