Oh, Awkward Life Phases!

I’m sure I’m in the middle of an awkward life phase right now….but first…*insert drumroll here*

A writing update!

Yes, I haven’t written in a while. A long while. Yikes! But I was thinking and for right now Cafeteria Lady and BookWorm are going to take a break, for I don’t know what to do with them. They’re there, and I’ll bring them back when I find them a purpose to fight for, other than just to fight and look cool. I’m gonna be cool though, and still post Nightmare Chasers every other Friday, and (hopefully) poems every Sunday. Along with that, I’ll start posting reviews of things…like books, movies, shows…stuff like that. I’m reading a lot, and so, I should let my opinion be known, yes? Maybe? Perhaps?

Anyway, work’s going well (it’s only been 2 weeks). Right next to where I work, there’s a book store, and you can bet that’s where half my paycheck is going. I went there a few days ago in hopes to get my hands on Volume 3 of the reprinted Sailor Moon manga, but they were out of volume 3 and had 4-11! I was so angry that I walked over the the Marvel comics section and bought The Superior Spider-Man and Avengers Arena instead! I decided that since Marvel comics started their Marvel Now, it would be a good time to get back into what’s currently going on in the Marvel Universe. I shall return with my thoughts on those so far with reviews.

Back to the title subject…the awkward life phase. Now I know, you all know I’m young. And even though I haven’t given you my actual age, I’ve given you a range, and I’m sure you have all of your thoughts on what my age is. But I believe this phase can happen during any of the ages on my range…I’m starting to feel that even though I’m an adult, I’m still being taken care of.

Now I know that I still live at home, so yes in that sense of course I’m taken care of, but I mean in daily things. Like we have friends of the family that I sometimes spend time with, and a few days ago, I went to the mall with them, to get their help on buying a present for my grandparents anniversary. While driving there, some guy made a terrible and dangerous move on the road, and my uncle (well, the friend of the family – yes, we’re that close) told me never to do something like that and was giving me a lesson on how to always look back again before turning onto a busy street.

I get it, they care! But I think I’m in this phase of growing into a true adult. Because I must say, even as a young adult, you’re still growing and learning who you are. I swear, when I look back at myself 3 years ago, I’m much different. And that was just a 3 year period. How it’s awkward? Well, you’re at that age where now, you have a driver’s liscence, a job, friends, a social life, and even maybe some bills or some type of payment. You’re an adult! (Albeit a young one). But why are your parents (or family or whoever took care of you) still all over you? Why are they still reminding you of things or doing your laundry (if you live at home), or buying you things when out together? Cause you’re still their kid, and you’re not as old as them! (This is my way of saying you don’t feel the need to have them around cause, let’s face it, you got this, and yet they’re just always still there!) Like, truly, I was out food shopping for a party, and my mom sent me text message reminding me that when I went to get avacadoes, make sure to look for the softest ones. Pfft! I knew that. (Actually, I was going to grab the first bunch I saw.)

I feel like this was more of rambling than an update, but that’s what’s going on. Will there be a new chapter of Nightmare Chasers up Friday? Let’s hope so.

    It’s a hard age…I vaguely remember it. I have faith that you will be just fine. As a parent I have to tell you…it doesn’t matter how old you are you will always be somebody’s baby, and sometimes a mother just can’t help but remind you of that. 🙂

Talk to me baby!
