I turned 25 this week. The toughest part I think is realising that I have adult's responsabilities, but i sometimes think like a child... I could still play with Tonkas and enjoying it! And a fart still makes me laugh
It's when you realise that you don't care much about what people are thinking that you know you're getting older. When I was in my teens, I would never have listened to Simon and Garfunkel, or hug my mom, or wear a bicycle helmet, or refusing a beer, etc. Only the losers did that! Now that I'm older, I don't care anymore about what people think of that. And at the same time I realised that people might actually think these behaviour are good ones!
That's what getting older means to me: having the liberty to do things I did'nt have the right, or didnt take the right to do when I was a teen.
But don't worry, hair are not soon to grow in your ears! That's a bad thing about getting older... it frightens me.
