Why the name?

I’ve often pondered about the fact that I am a 32 year old adult, and yet I feel like a child still. When exactly do we ever feel like an adult? Truthfully, I just feel like a big kid with more responsibilities.

Do we really feel like an adult when we turn the legal age of 18 or 21, depending on your location?

Or perhaps it’s when we get our first full time job?

Or our first utility bill?

Growing up seems like such a wonderful thing when you are young.

“I will be an astronaut when I grow up!”

But when exactly is that? When exactly do we grow up? Or perhaps it is when we have a young life that we are then responsible for? Is that when we grow up?

So this is why I have named this blog such. Other than wanting the freedom to write, I also wanted to document my own journey of growing up. What is it that defines growing up, adulthood or perhaps it’s just adult-ish?

  1. Yes. I totally get where you are with this adulting thing… Have you read the book “Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps” by Kelly Williams Brown?
