|How dare you enjoy the things that you like! Dishonor on you AND your cow!|
It's part of a trend I've been noticing for ages now, that enthusiasm, ESPECIALLY unbridled enthusiasm, is generally seen as something to be avoided. Why? I can't really comprehend the mentality behind not wanting to be excited about anything.
Geeks get a bad rap for being weirdos (which is fair enough), but what's treated as especially strange is their excitement about the things that they care about. It's called obsession and fanaticism, and is perceived to be mentally unhealthy. Frick that. I say, unbridled enthusiasm is smashing! Passion is wonderful! Excitement and wonder is to be desired, not disdained.
You aren't more grown up when you act disinterested in anything. You act like a grown up when you stay true to yourself and your feelings. If you've always wanted to join the circus, and think trapeeze artists are the bee's knees, get pumped up about that! Show your friends sweet trapeeze videos, take a trapeeze class. Have fun with the things you love!

You could wait a million years to feel like an adult, to have those grownup pastimes work their way into your life. The secret to being an adult is that you ARE one(unless there's younguns on my blahg. What are you doing here, younguns?). Adulthood is just a continuation of your life. The changes that take place are put into action by you, no one comes by with the adult stamp and changes what you love (unless I am very mistaken, and they somehow skipped myself and everyone I know).
P.S.: The other secret to adulthood is that you aren't really broke if you tell you bank account to shut up.
|Not today, bank account!|
|It's true, you know.|
Until next time I roll around,
