adulthood is not defined by age.
you know you're an adult when
when you party and drink
but it's the end of your dreams
when you're happy you live alone
but you'll end up getting a loan
when you open your mail, waiting for a Christmas gift
but in reality, it's only the electricity bill.
when you want to be a published writer
but you continue serving coffee, like a good waiter.
when you finally start to appreciate sleep,
when you finally start to appreciate family.
