Adulting


I said I would try to be more consistent and honestly the timing is perfect to talk about this subject; and that is adulting. What does "adulting" mean? Practically its behavior seen as responsible and grown up. In my household it's hearing my mom constantly say "tienes que cojer cabeza ya tu no tienes 15 anos, ponte para lo tuyo" which practically means I'm no longer 15 years so I have to get my shit together. Annoying as it was hearing her always say that she's totally right. Once I turned 20 I felt like I had to have everything together, not knowing where to even begin to build for my future and now being 21 I can finally say I have a plan of where I see myself in a couple years. The older I get the more I realize how fast time goes, and how it doesn't wait or stop for anybody; which is honestly what made me realize I needed to get it together. My mom as annoying as she might be sometimes has literally been the best mom anyone could ever ask for, but part of becoming an adult is also realizing that I won't be living with my mom forever and need to financially be able to take care of myself and I could proudly say I am doing just that. So many more things make me so proud of the person I am becoming and that is because I've finally grown up. Although at times I won't deny I act like I'm 5 years old but that's called balance because being a so called adult is tiring. Going back to why I said writing about "adulting" is perfect timing because of the way my life is now compared to a year ago. Last night I went out for drinks with my friend and got home at 4am because "la calle me llama" and I was just having way too much fun to get home at normal hours; the only problem was I got home so late and I worked at 9am and like the adult that I am now I didnt let that phase me, I casually woke up at 7am to get ready and did my job, because although I am an "adult" now that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. A year ago I would go out get home at the same time and sleep all day, which doesn't sound bad after a night out but I much rather go out and struggle getting up to go to work than have no job and be home all day. I don't know how I did it all the time, looking back I feel like I wasted a whole year doing nothing but never again. Time is valuable and I have high standards for myself not including my expensive taste in fashion and in everything else in general I have to keep up with so learning to be responsible was the best thing I could have done for myself.
