Trying To Act Like I Know What I'm Doing

It is official...
I am an adult.

I have waited so long for this moment to arrive.  To finally be old enough to have a proper bank account, to enter TV competitions, to be taken seriously as a human being...

But, to be honest, I don't really feel any different.

And, actually, (surprisingly), I don't really care.

I thought that I was ready to grow up, become an adult, be independent, but now I realise that I'm still just that naïve lost child who just wants to spend time with her family, and sing along to Disney songs, and just be loved.
And I don't know if I'm ready to lose that part of me just yet.

So, although I can now legally buy alcohol, and count as a supervised person at a swimming pool, I'm not yet all grown up as an 'adult' supposedly should be.

I'm just standing here, trying to act like I know what I'm doing, when really I'm just as clueless as the next guy.  And, honestly, I couldn't care less.


  1. Happy (late) birthday!

    I see you left a comment about doing The Senior Year posts on TBC.. I'd be delighted if you were still interested in contributing! We haven't got a plan yet because there are only 2 confirmed contributors, but please e-mail me at and you will (eventually) receive a group e-mail with more details :)

  2. Hey! Belated Happy Birthday! Yay I'm still alive! =D Stalking and reading the past posts just to catch up on all I missed, I guess (totally not creepy)... Um, again, belated happy birthday! Hope you had a great day (it's sooo late, but yeah).

  3. Hi Andrea! Welcome back!!! I have literally just seen your new post, and was trying to think of something to comment on there when I saw your comment here! Thanks so much for the shout-out - gratefully appreciated - and the 'happy birthday' (I had a lovely day)! :D
