As a kid, you must have imagined what it was like to be an adult. Now that you’re a grownup (or becoming one), how far off was your idea of adult life?
Growing up was one of the biggest prize I wanted to get when I was a kid. Watching my dad pulling out a wallet of money for toys, mom deciding her own choice of dinner and so many instances where I felt inferior in the ‘adult‘ category. I vowed I would have my revenge on this world. I, too would have my own money to buy all the novels I want and have my own choice of dinner and most important…won’t get yelled at while I play the music loud!
But since I am close to being adult now, I have realized being grown up is a pain in the bottom. Its not the paradise I thought it was. Its like the saying, ‘The grass is always greener on the other side.‘ I always thought being an adult, I would be the king of the world. No worries and no fuss. But sadly the dream is ending now and any minute I will wake up.
The only thing I wish for now is I get to keep the inner child alive in me (if I grow up…at all!) and have some crazy fun before I get old and wish for it.
