we all have been to different experiences in life and i know it's a good feeling to be a child, innocent and carefree but when was the time that you said to yourself that "i have to grow up and take life seriously"?

I think I have experienced that a couple of times but, even up to now, I don't know if I have really 'grown up' at all.. For example, the bills were too high one time and I was just using the computer browsing the net. I kept on hearing my mom asking my brother and sisters who were already working if they can give something for the bills and most of them had a hard time giving some since they too would also like to spare some for themselves. That's when I though of looking for a job and finally giving some of what I would earn for the bills. Using the computer consumes electricity as well as raises the phone bill due to the internet. I guess I'd be taking life seriously if I know where I'd want to go or as others would say, a career. Up to now, I'm not even sure where I'm going or am I even moving at all (-_-")

I realized that I have to grow up for many times, 1. When I was child, and I was too short to reach something in height. 2. When I found myself being eliminate from several oppertunities to involve in, only because of I was small. Somewhere by height and somewhere by age. 3. When I get threaten, beaten by some elder person, ( think of taking revenge but found myself not capable due to less energy. 4. Also in these days when I act like a kid and somebody make us realiaze that I am still kid in some of the ways. what do you say, m I wright ? AB_Singh
