Writing Prompt: All Grown Up
When was the first time I really felt like a Grown Up.
This is one question I asked myself time and time again,but came up with no answer. I remember I had finished my education and started working in a school. You would think I should be grown up,I did too but my mom did not think so. How can that be, well I asked my mom one day if I could visit one of my friends, in reply she said yes but I must be back within the hour. Technically at that age I shouldn’t ask for permission,rather tell her I’m going to my friend’s house and will be back whenever.
I was twenty-two then. Now I really have to think hard and wonder when did I really consider myself grown up? I think when I left home and started teaching in a school outside my home town.
Thankfully I did start to feel I was grown up when I was my own boss,I did not have to take permission to go somewhere.
