Hey blog perusers! How are you all doing?
As the title of this post suggests, I’d like to talk about growing up. Well, my growing up specifically. Recently I’ve realized that I’m crossing further over the threshold between childhood and adulthood. When you turn eighteen, everyone says that you’re an adult. The truth is, it’s really not cut and dry like that. You can turn eighteen, nineteen, even twenty, and still feel like you haven’t gotten to that point where you feel like an adult. Becoming and adult really depends on the amount of responsibility you take on, and how much of your life you put under your control.
I’m currently working two jobs, which is new for me, and I’m running a full week of classes, which is also new. Having a job is a lot of responsibility, but I feel like that responsibility is something I’ve needed. I’ve tried to avoid taking classes every day in the past as well, but now I find myself not minding it too much. Having so much to do keeps me productive when I normally might not be. The most important thing about all this is that I feel like I’m always progressing. I think that’s a feeling one can easily lose, but it’s a really great feeling.
On the road to becoming more of an adult, I’ve stopped to take a look at my finances. In the past I’ve never been great at saving my money. I decided the other day it was time for that to change. I decided to add a savings account alongside my checking account. Now all of my earnings from work go straight into my savings. Making that decision made me very proud of myself.
On a less exciting note, I received my first jury summons the other day. I have to call tomorrow and see if I’m going to be serving. As with most people, I really hope I don’t have to. If I do, I’ll just look at it as another step into the world of adulthood.
