I don't really like christmas - sure, when truth be told, I don't really mind it either,
I just cannot for the life of me see what the big deal is about...
Back home, you see - it's always the same: Mom works overtime; my little sister all grumpy and being a tit,
leaving my father and I to deal with the decorating. And well, when you leave something of that importance to a couple of cynical sarcasmfeeders with no sense of holiday spirit - you are doomed to fail which ever way you look at it.
The tree is up and done (really fugly looking too if i do say so myself) on the 23rd - and hopefully taken down as soon as possible.

Now I migh be wrong, but it seems to me like the presents are the true meaning of the holidays. Mind you, eeevery christmas chipper in this world will disagee, nut if you look away from the opinions of slightly elderly ladies - and really take a look at what christmas has become, it would seem I am right.
After all, nothing causes more stress than the christmas shopping; people making sure they have all they need for each and every member of their family and friends. So i have to ask myself, If it is the though that counts, wouldn't these people settle for a little less, with a little more consideration - instead of turning such a holiday intoo a shopping marathon, or worse; a gift competition?

All I know is that this christmas I will stick to my humble abode, eat good food and do what I do best - deal with it!

What does it actually mean to grow up?

Most people would say that you grow up the day you leave your inner child behind - and move on.
But if that is so, how can so many adults live their entire life in such a childish state of mind?
And better yet; if it is not in fact so; then exactly what is it that brings about this transition.
 

As a young child, I as many other children would set myself goals and expectations; anticipating the arrival of this moment. At first I thought it would be as I hit puberty; but as is the case more often than not; puberty came and went, and I still remained the same.

For that reason, I was sure it would happen during my first relationship… after all it takes commitment, dedication and patience to be that close emotionally to another person. But time went and came – and if anything I only felt less committed, with a faltered dedication than ever before.

At last I though it would be when I lost my virginity (to put it bluntly).. I was always a late bloomer in these kind of things, so it would only be natural if my lack of experience made me feel as childish as I did at the time… But my first times came, and went; and I did not feel any less incomplete.

 Today I am wiser, more patient and independend; well on my way to adulthood. And I know now that my own process of growing up, is more than anything based on experiences  - and what you make of them. When you can see past you own mistakes; try to improve yourself without loosing who you really are; then I believe you have come far.
