I think about how I used to work with adults and silently judge when they were too crippled by fear to try and learn or do anything of their own accord. These days, I'm a bit more understanding. Being an adult is downright scary.
I got summoned for jury duty on the day of Halloween. I was dismissed, but that's terrifying!
I'm not saying that getting older has made me have an aversion to trying or doing new things. No, I absolutely love doing that still! I just can't seem to find the time ever! Being an adult and having the consistent schedule is a saving grace! I got a promotion recently, and I thought I had a grip on adulthood, but not even close!
Weekends are so precious, and you just get so tired sometimes from everything else, that you just don't want to do a lot, or when you do find the precious sliver of time to go out and explore, you want as little burden as possible.
Do you have any idea how long it's been since a coffee outing? Ages, it feels like. A Disney adventure is soon coming up, and hopefully that revitalizes these old bones, but for the time being, I'm really taking on this whole grandma persona.
