    Still Very Unprepared

    I'm 28 years old, but still very unprepared for the adult world. I wasn't even prepared for the world of children when I was a child, & certainly not for the world of teenagers when I was a teen. Now that I'm 28 years old & have technically been an adult for ten years now, I am...

    I'm Terrified.

    I'm terrified. Partly because I leave for college in three short months. Partly because I have been experiencing a LOT of adult situations (ex. working 30+ hours a week, having to do my own laundry, make my own meals, etc.) But most of these things are because of the college...

    I am not an adult yet.... I feel like I'm floating in a void of uncertainty, and no-one seems to be able to tell me what the best thing to do is.  I crave knowledge and experience, and I don't want to be limited in my understanding and endeavors. It scares me the way emphasis in...

    Seventeen.

    I am on the cusp of being a grown up. Doesn't it sound funny, when you think about how little experience you actually have, about how little you know about responsibility, about how small the vastness of high school has really been? And now that I've graduated, and I'm about to...

    I use to have this feeling from a very early

    age, that is about 10 years old - even before I entered secondary school. (In the UK from 11 years up) As a lad I use to think how will I earn enough money to provide for myself and others when I become adult? What is it like being a parent? What will a wife be like etc etc...

    So technically I am an adult,

    but since I turned 15 almost five years ago I was dreading my 20th birthday and now that it's only a few months away. I'm freaking out. I don't know that I can handle the pressure of full on adulthood.
