One of Sheldon’s best moments on the show. I seriously died of laughter.
Sometimes I wonder if I truly have matured over the years. More specifically, during my undergraduate career. Of course, I am more mature today than I was 10 years ago. I use to think boys and vegetables were icky. Boy, times have changed!
Most people I have met and come across all believe that the time of your life starts during your college years and that you experience significant changes in your life and character. Does this actually apply to everyone? What significant changes happened to me?
I like to think that I have changed, for the better that is. I have grown and learned from mistakes I’ve made, decisions I’ve come to regret, actions I wish I had taken. I am still flawed, nowhere near being perfect. With these changes, I think I have matured also…
With maturity, comes more responsibility in my opinion. Ever since I received my first job as a junior in high school, my responsibilities have increased as each year passed. It started off with paying for gas to get to work, then school lunches, activities and adventures with friends, things you do as a high school student. I then began taking on the responsibility of paying for my family’s phone bill by myself, car insurance, my apartment’s utilities, credit card bills, and so much more. Not only have I matured, I’ve also learned a sense of priority and the value of money. I am proud to say that I have worked for everything that I have. I don’t depend on other people to get me the things I want. If I want it, I will make it happen somehow. I have always been an independent young woman and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Sure, I’d like someone to take care of me for once but my parents have done that since birth and continue to this day. My drive and motivation to succeed stems from the hope that I will be able to repay them for all that they have sacrificed and done for our family and to eventually care for them through sickness and health.
Most days I have my act together and may come off cool and collected. Internally though, I’m running at 150 mph. I’m overwhelmed a majority of the time with an endless list of things to do but ironically, I enjoy it (though I won’t always admit it). If you ask any one of my friends or colleagues, they’ll probably describe me as crazy or very hard-working. I like being busy because boredom definitely kills. I don’t enjoy unproductiveness and inactivity. Of course, there are days when I watch an entire season of some new show I discovered or I hibernate for days. Those moments are highly deserved after living the life and schedule I lead, FYI. Time is of the essence, and there simply isn’t enough hours and minutes in a day to do everything.
I can’t imagine what kind of person I would have become if I did not go against my parents’ wishes in my decision to work as a high school student. Since then, I have always held a job of some sort and paid for my own way and helped to support my parents.
Working. Employment. Financial obligations. That’s just one aspect of maturity.
Till next time, there will be another post to continue this idea.
I have been LOOKING for this post for SO LONG cause I wanted to watch Wish Upon a Star again! :D But I only have internet when I’m at Starbucks and I don’t really want to watch a movie here, so I’m attempting to load all 9 parts in different tabs so I can watch it when I get home. We’ll see how it goes.
MY LIFE IS COMPLETE AND JUST SO MAGICAL RIGHT NOW
TIGER CRUISE OMG
