i think i only truly realized it today: i am a grown-up now.
i'm not sure when it happened, and i'm not sure if i like it, but there's no turning back now.
i have a college degree and an amazing husband and an apartment and a crazy cat and a corporate job and lots of bills and responsibilities. i have to balance my work life with my home life and my family life and my social life (i'm still learning). eventually there will be a mortgage and a baby and after that a million other things, big and small, that will change my life.
my only hope is that i will remember to appreciate this life, live it to the very best of my ability, and enjoy this crazy ride while it lasts.
