The Exciting and Not So Exciting Parts of Growing Up
I love my independence! I love living alone, away from parents! I love being able to pay my own bills! Of course, I love paychecks and any additional side income I can get!
I do not love figuring out the fine print. What I mean by the fine print is figuring out what medical insurance covers. Or how much my hubby’s contacts are going to be. Or who my in-network doctors should be.
I love having my car! Who doesn’t like to drive wherever and whenever they feel like it!?!
I do not love the way my parents see me. They want me to grow up, and stay a little girl at the same time! So even though I’m an adult, stopped depending on them a while ago, they still want to treat me as a child. This awkward stage of being in the middle is so not exciting.
I love having my grown up job! It is awesome! Even though I get tired, it makes me feel accomplished.
I do not love the period after lunch when sleep tries to get to me. When I really wished there was a nap room.
I love taking care of just myself (and hubby, of course, but he’s mostly independent). This much needed “selfish” time is needed for my development. I have to say that I don’t mind not having someone else to be responsible for at the end of the day. I don’t think I could handle a pet at this point.
These are the exciting and not so exciting parts of growing up.
