I know it may seem stupid, but for the first time since I have turned 18, I really felt like I have grown up. You may laugh, but I have not gone to the store by myself to just get those extra things you need around the house, or used my debit card without withdrawing money beforehand so I would not have to use the "swiper". It is embarrassing I know, but I guess I'm just not ready to become an adult yet. Anyway, back to the reason I started my big confession. Today, my best friend Denise and I washed my mother's car, like completely cleaned it inside and out, and although it may not seem that "adultish" it certainly seemed like it to both of us girls who have never washed the car without our parents before. Then right after that, we both got into the car and drove over to the gas station, used my debit card and paid for gas in my mom's car. So exciting! Then we drove on over to Wal Mart, where I had a shopping list and everything already ready in my hands, hehe. We grabbed a cart, which usually our parents push, and went on our way. At the end I paid with the debit card and said, "How easy was that?" We also went to Safeway to activate Denise's debit card, so we were both feeling pretty proud of ourselves for the rest of the day. Pretty much this entire week I have been feeling more and more like an adult and less like a child, my mom and brother haven't been home, so I have been cleaning the house, doing the dishes, all sorts of things. Although, I do those all the time, this week just seems a little different, maybe it is because I am getting close to college and I feel like I should become more mature, but that should have happened a long time ago. For me, I guess it's just taking a little while longer to grow into a mature, more outgoing adult. I have to tell you though, not only did I feel so accomplished,but I also felt free, free to shop for what I needed and do what I wanted to do. Now, if only I had my own car, haha.
