When I was 7 years old I equated anyone with a beard to being a grown-up. At 11, when I realized some classmates went through the stubby neckbeard phase in middle school, I figured anyone who drove a car had a certain level of maturity. Now 21, I understand that the illusion of grown-ups having everything under control is just that: an illusion. Despite a well-mastered grown-up facade comprised of maintaining steady jobs, paying bills on time, and saying "no thanks" to mouthwatering desserts, I don't believe anyone ever reaches an age where they feel they are truly grown-up to the degree of always knowing what to do in every situation. But that's not a bad thing! Looking into the future, here are some of the things I don't think I'll ever outgrow:
They're delicious! Not only do they come in different flavours, but there is such a satisfying feeling that comes from punching the straw through the shiny aluminum opening. I'll drink to that.
It's so meditative.
3. Playing Outside
Even though I might not play kickball like I used to, I think I'll always enjoy exploring the outdoors.
Props to those who only eat three times a day at mealtimes, but I'll take my 10:00 gummy snacks, thank you very much.
Breaks are important. There's a reason we have intermissions at plays and pauses during long speeches at conferences.
6. Sugary Cereal
Perhaps not every day, but once in awhile there's nothing better than a bowl of Fruit Loops.
I could watch Looney Tunes every Sunday morning from here on out no problem.
8. Blowing Bubbles
Here, I was originally talking about blowing bubbles through a plastic bubble blower and watching them float through the air before popping. On second thought, this one has a double meaning: bubble gum bubbles.
9. Finding Shapes in Clouds
A car! An elephant! A tree!
10. Bubble Wrap
I just can't resist.
