The End of My Childhood...

I don't know how many of you know this but it's my birthday on Saturday! That's right Jul 18th Which means I haven't updated this blog in, Oh, 5 months? Call me a Slacker if you will. But just so you know, I have an excuse. I'm just a child, I'm only 19 years old, still a little teenager. But, as of Saturday, I will not be able to use this
excuse any longer. I will be an Adult. 20 years old people!
What does it mean to be 20 years old?
1) Well it means that at family dinners I will now be considered a "Quazie". A term my Uncle came up with to describe anyone that is no longer a child but still not quite an adult. I have been waiting so long to be able to sit with the
big kids at Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas Bru
nch! I can't wait to sit with the big kids.
2) According to Rexburg Mormon Culture I must now decide whether I would like to start working on my Mission Papers or Start Finding my "E.C." (One of many mormon acronyms; standing for 'Eternal Companion') When I return home and people realize my age they will ask, "So, Annie are you dating anyone?" Depending on my response the post questions will either be, "Oh really?! Well, Are you guys planning on getti
ng married?" (it won't matter if I tell them I've been dating for 1 week or 1 year) or the next question will be,"Oh you're not? What are your plans now? Mission?" Phew... this is a lot of pressure!
3) Means I will go from looking like this to looking like that...
Yikes! Apparently that's what I'm going to look like when I'm old. Dang it! So much for aging gracefully.
4) I have to be responsible. I can no longer blame my mistakes on my age.
Anyway, I'm not 20 yet so I can blame the lack of length on my age.
