The thing is, I never intended to grow up. In fact I was very wary of it and tried to avoid anything that was considered ‘adult’ or required any real level of maturity.
Then this year happened.
And looking back, I’ve grown up. It took me by surprise because I never wanted to. I just adapted to try get through and now, I’m not a child anymore.
And all of a sudden I can’t get back to my childhood. I can’t get back to feeling excited about Christmas. My gift list is two bulletpoints long and I can’t see when this happened.
When did I grow up?
