I don't know which way to go. Any advice?

A Whole Lot Older, a Little Bit Wiser

My sister turned 18 today. We celebrated in advance, and  I was having a hard time explaining to her why turning 18 actually isn’t that cool. (Yes, I’m a total Debbie Downer sister, but I wish someone had given me a glimpse of reality!)

But now, back at home, I suddenly have a list of reasons, starting with ants and maggots and calls to the plumber and oil changes and back fat. I could go on . . .

I remember how badly I wanted to “become an adult,” little did I know what it actually entailed.

I will not bother to wax poetic about how much wiser we are now and self-confident and how we’ve come into ourselves. We all know that’s true. Instead, let’s just have moment of pity and recgonize that growing up is hard to do.
