    Sometimes I wish I could be selfish

    and irresponsible. I always have to do what has to be done. Always must do the right thing and put my own desires last. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for having the ability to do what I do and for everything I have. I just dream of taking off on a whim once in a while...

    No More Stress Pls.

    I am the one who makes sure the bills are paid, there's food on the table and work overtime when possible to make sure there's enough money coming in to do all this. I go through much stress in trying to make ends meet where my partner will just walk of a job if he doesn't get...

    Out of my trio of friends,

    I am the responsible one; the one who organises days out, get-togethers, parties etc. you name it, I've had to plan it. Don't get me wrong, they're both fun and awesome people, just I wish I could sit back and relax once in a while.

    So what if I'm the oldest!

    I'm still a person. I can't control others anymore than they can control me. My sibling doesn't listen. Oh well it's not my problem. If the kids at camp don't behave, that's all right they'll deal with the consequences. Just don't make it my problem. I do what I want. And when...

    I'm tired of being the responsible one,

    the sensible one. I don't want to be the careful one, the cautious one, the reliable one. I want to jump into new experiences, follow my dreams, live a life full of wonderful adventures.....when will I get to be carefree and live those dreams?

    Grow Up!
