In This Thread, We Talk About Things That Makes Us Feel Like "Adults"

Ok, this is totally a spin-off of the "In This Thread, We Talk About Things That Make Us Feel Old" thread. I joke with my mom all the time about things that make me fee like an "adult". (And yes, I meant for that to be in quotes!)

- I got my own Safeway card recently.

- I just bought something off of a wedding registry for the first time. This will be the first time I was invited to a wedding and it wasn't part of an invitation for my whole family.

Oh, and here's a post from one of my favorite blogs. This one is called "This is Why I'll Never Be an Adult."

This thread makes me feel old.

Reading "Safeway" makes me feel old because I haven't been inside a Safeway since I was a kid. I know where Safeways are located but haven't actually noticed one in years.

I figured someone would say that. Oh, but that belongs in another thread...

A lot of my friends are already married and for some reason that doesn't phase me, but the kids do. It's still weird to me that people I grew up with have children now.

Also, answering "24 in less than a month" to the freshmen who ask how old I am. I look young (I think it's the babyface) so they frequently think I'm one of them.

I'm around about "system failure" already. But...things that make me feel like an "adult" (whether I like it or not):

Getting my taxes done in a timely manner.

Voting!

Took my daughter to her first day of Pre-school today. I feel old AND like an adult! There's no way I'm a grown-up!

I feel you. I sat in the emergency exit row and the flight attendant came up to me and said "Oh honey you have to be over 15 to sit here".

I'm 23.
