Realization: I’m Growing up Wayyy Too Fast

I’m not only saying this because time is flying by faster I ever could have imagined but because I’m more mature than I may have wanted to be at this age. My friends are freaking out and celebrating because they are all turning 21 this year and some are turning 22. I on the other hand am about to turn 20 which is a blessing and a curse. It’s good because I have that little extra year and all of my friends.

It has its downsides though because I am anyways and I mean always being called the baby. I also am continually invited to things I can’t go to. One of my favorite country singers (be thankful I can’t hear the groans or profanities because I’m sure some people have their own opinions about country) was performing at a bar down in Nashville but you had to be 21 which I am far from…

Then there is the fact that I seem to be more mature than other my age or just have an old soul in a way I guess. I mean if this says anything, I started my retirement account at 18 lol. I also love classical music and when I have the time read about 2 books a week.

There are just so many things I could talk about with this but I just had to talk to someone or just get my thoughts out there and out of my head.

I spend too much time thinking and it just makes me think of everything I’ve done in my 19 years and how I wish I would have done and learned so much more. With that said, I probably ahead of some people in the things that I have been blessed to do and I can’t be grateful enough. At the same time though I keep thinking about everything. Take high school for example, I have missed playing soccer and all of the team breakfasts, dinner, parties, car washes and everything else. I just keep thinking about everything I used to do because time is flying by at sonic speed or something.

I hope you all can relate to my little rant.

Have a great day and thanks for reading!

    there is so much pressure to grow up quickly at this age when in reality we need to stay as young as possible for the longest time x
