Never Grow Up

I became a grown up before I even grew up.

A few years back, I turned 18. So many things happened during that period in time. Can’t remember most. The most memorable, however, can never be forgotten.

How can I forget the first time I got my driver’s license and picking up my friends (in anything that has wheels)? Who can forget graduation?! Or the first day of university? (it was nerve-wracking. everyone looked so old!)...

So many exciting things.. So many new experiences! I never felt that way before - Such a high!

I know what you’re thinking. You probably think that those events were not so “exciting” (maybe even boring?).. but, you see, the thing is, I’ve always been a careful girl. Mature. Responsible. Takes care of her siblings. The one that rarely does anything wrong (yeah, right). The polite one. The A-student… need I go on?

Fast forward a few years, and a few mild highs, and here I am, still responsible, and trying to figure out what to write about. A friend of mine read something I wrote, and recommended that I start my own blog. I want to write about my adventures.. My electrifying life! I want to write about all the crazy things I did as a teenager, but I can’t remember doing anything crazy! Oh my God. I’m boring!

Anyway.. I’ve always loved writing, it’s so therapeutic.. And sometimes when I have a lot on my mind, the idea of having someone listen (in this case, read) about my life, is so refreshing.. So.. So new! Could this be my new high? Can I release my crazy (and sometimes immature) inner-being? I may not be so boring after all, right?

And on this note, I'd like to quote some lines from the lyrics of Mr. Robbie Williams,

"I hope I'm old before I die,
I hope I live to relive the days gone by.."

I really hope so.. I really, really do..

Because this young girl is all grown up.

And I don’t want to grow up.. I really, really don’t.

Not every day has material for blogging, but you hit the nail on the head - most of us write because that is what we were born to do. :-) Welcome, Lady.

:) - always say am "18 till I die" - i guess it's ok to have those experiences at a young age even if some of them are difficult - outcome would be great :)

Keep writing!

thank you for the encouragement! its true, i just cant make myself write when i have nothing to say. sometimes when i have a lot to say, i'll just scribble it on a peice of paper.. i never leave home without my pen and notebook.

Wow, so young and yet so bright! I have always kept this "Never-Grow-Up" mentality and it helps keep me sane. One does need to keep some semblance of one's inner child-like curiosity in life. Do keep writing.....
