When it comes to being a kid, it seems like adulthood will never happen, the perks of being an adult are vast, and being a kid is tough. But somewhere along the way those wide-eyed views of adulthood get lost in that transition from youthful bliss to paying taxes. Now this is a constant struggle that adulthood hands us, but is seemingly liberating to any small tyke. What seems wonderful about having McDonalds every day is often a hard reality of adulthood. Take joy in the fact that you can have pizza seven nights a week or take out at 3am. This little thing is surely one to add to your blessings checklist.
I don't know at what point you feel like you're 'grown up' but I can tell you for me, it ain't at 23 years old It's becoming more and more apparent that us millennials are feeling increasingly lost in the world and uhm, avoiding all responsibilities and shunning convention. Maybe we don't ever get to a point where we feel completely grown up. Maybe our parents and all the other 'grown ups' are just winging it too but there are definitely some aspects of my life I think 'this is peak adulting. What's your absolute best and worst thing about being all grown up?
So I have been thinking about this a lot. I wish I could feel the same…my childhood was a nightmare.. I choose not to. But When I think about my children …and how they had an awesome childhood…and they are making poor choices…. I wonder why?
As an adult learner, you might have reservations about returning to school. However, there are actually many advantages to going back to school as an adult. Adult learners come from all walks of life, but they all have one thing in common, life experience. You have the ability to be successful in your educational endeavors no matter what age. You're more focused and driven: You've held jobs with deadlines and time constraints or have learned time management while carting your children from one activity to another.
