The last few weeks have been… frustrating. I don’t air my laundry on the blog, so I won’t go into details, but I think I may have grown up, just a little.
The situation was between the infamous “us” and “them”. Of course I think we are right (who would route for the other team?) – but regardless of what “they” did, I not only stood my ground, but I held back excess, non-necessary, emotional language. I am one to fly off the handle. I will stick up for what I believe in and have gotten in trouble for this in the past. I have, on occasion, acted before thinking (I know that those of you who know me are shocked by this… or not. really not.) This time, I planned for the worst, got the worst, and stayed cool. I responded like an adult should have (even though my inner 15-year-old self was screaming at the top of her lungs).
Only time will tell if it worked, but I maybe I realized that I am an adult now. Maybe. Eh – I am not ready for that quite yet. Maybe a young adult… that at least has “young” in the title. And I get to read ‘Harry Potter’.
Now if I can just get water.
