You know when you're growing up when buying the weekly shopping for your mother
gives you a strange feeling of satisfaction.

You know you're growing up when you have to think about breathing.

you know you are growing up when you stop "listening" to love songs and start "feeling" them!!
There is Pleasure in the pathless wood..
There is rapture on the lonely shores..
There is society where none intrudes..
By the deep sea and music in its roar.
I love not Man the less, but Nature more!

You know you're growing up when you start to see just how full of it everyone is.

You know you're growing up when you stop being bothered by how full of it people are and just accept that some people are just the way they are.

Pro-tip: because my first instinct is to procrastinate anything I see as an obligation or responsibility, asking me for a critique is a good way to make sure I never give you a critique.

You know your growing up when instead of wishing to "be one of those singers!" You ARE one!
Be creative… this:

Will you be the person who happens to take care of my heart? The person who holds onto my eyes and softly caresses my lips? Will you be the reason behind my every move? Beyond all of that, will you be the very person that I want to spend my every breath with?

You know you're growing up when you start looking forward to school (and that kid you like)
