Gettin' Grown

For the first time in my life i can actually feel my growing pains.
The pains of gettin' grown.

I am traveling the path between who i used to be and who i am becoming.
the person i used to be has been naturally easy to let go of and i am quite comfortable letting the person i am becoming move on in.

I am now officially a "morning person". not by choice. But rather because i just get tired early and then my body wakes up early.
(Oh, and all of this is aided by the fact that Jonathan is the happiest ray of sunshine the morning has ever seen). so i too, am coming around to the idea.
For the first time in my life, i actually owed money to the IRS for my income taxes. ! which i am sure is what happens when one is found somewhere between a young adult -- and dare i say -- AN ADULT.

Thoughts that have never crossed my mind have as of late:
Do i belong in the Misses or Ladies section?
Am i too old to wear pig tails?
Could i plant a garden?
Is it inappropriate to have Ugly Dolls, pez dispensers and musical monkeys in my office?

As I wrap up my first year as an internship supervisor or as my interns like to say "Boss" -- i realize that i am no longer "that kid". That hungry kid who couldn't get enough.
And lately i have felt a slip in my creativity... or at least in the way i find it. It is just different than it used to be. Just as with all things -- Gettin' Grown is not easy -- but i am embracing it.
