While hashtag fans on Twitter have found yet another way to keep themselves busy, it made me truly drown into an introspection. You know when you've just stepped into adulthood, you're almost always not entirely an adult. It takes times and you gotta recognize the signs. Those signs that will let you know that you've changed, for the better or the worse.
Sign #1 : Some Opinions Change
You will suddenly notice that some of the stupid things you deeply believed in would no longer look so wonderful or worthwhile. For me that was Avril Lavigne and baggy pants. Ew!
Sign #2 : Some Opinions Crop Up
You will start taking interest in current news and will start reading papers, not just the TV guide part. You will then feel the need to talk about what you have read and sometimes you will dare disapprove of someone else's opinion. Some people might start being impressed by who you have become.
Sign #3: Having short or long term projects will seem natural
You will start setting objectives, yeah not just those regarding the next beer party or holidays. You will look forward to completing your studies so that you could start working, buy a car, build a house, get married, have kids.
Sign #4: Commitment will look cool
No more wandering about. No more finding that the opposite sex is too weird. You meet the right person and you feel like committing.
So dudettes and dudes, are you a grown up?
