When you turn 18, in the U.S., you are legally considered an adult. When you graduate college, then society really considers you an adult. And maybe when you get married, own your own home, or have kids, you're 100% an adult... but that's TBD.
For the most part, I would consider myself responsible and mature (not to toot my own horn or anything) but to be honest, I don't actually think of myself as an adult. You know, I still feel like I belong at the kids table at family functions.
But even though I don't think of myself as an adult, as I journey through life, there are moments when I am somewhere or doing something and I have a 'Wow, I am such an adult' moment. Real mature thought, I know.
I'm actually trying to learn how to cook. The other night I had friends over for a dinner party where I cooked.... the entire meal, all by myself (see proof on Twitter). SO Adult. (seriously if you know me in person, then you know this is a miracle).
I find myself stumbling onto housewares sites more and more (who wants to recommend their favorites?!).
Going on dates.
And notsleeping until noon on the weekends? That hardly ever happens nowadays.
And wine? I cannot believe I ever actually drank white zinfandel. EW. I actually enjoy wine, all kinds, I don't discriminate ;) I can hear my parent's hallelujah's from miles away on this one.
