It is that time of year again, I made level 36 in Real Life.
I mentioned last year that I’ve never really felt like an adult, despite having been supporting myself for more than a decade. I always expected to feel more mature (somehow) after college or after marriage. I thought becoming a parent would finally be the change that did it, and I do feel more adult now, in some ways, but I’ve also come to appreciate my childishness more. Being a father has given me more responsibility, but it has also given me a chance to re-experience the world from a fresh perspective.
Now I’m off to enjoy my vacation day and play video games. Yup, I’m totally an adult.
