The advantages of growing up

Dear Optimists,

Even though I’m now an adult and can do what I want…I still get a thrill out of it. It feels like I’m doing something I’m not supposed to do, like I’m somewhat a bad girl for doing so.

My eyes always flick around when I’m doing it, because I know it’s not okay, I know I shouldn’t be doing it.

But one of the best things about moving away from home is the fact that you can have cake for breakfast.

  1. I love being a grown-up. You get to do whatever you want, go wherever you want, and have no one to answer to! You get to have your cake and eat it too…usually for breakfast. 😉

    1. Exactly! I like being an adult as well, mostly because I keep the child in me alive. This is also why I want to wait to have kids – I’m not done being one just yet.
