It’s weird, I don’t feel any different, but since turning 18 I’ve had this overwhelming feeling of responsibility. I think now that my moving date is getting a bit closer the pressure is really on, and I’m definitely feeling it. I don’t feel old enough to be moving out. I’m quite happy here in my little nest.
Lately I’ve been trying to fill up all my time catching up with friends and it’s just making me a bit more anxious for the future. A particular Admiral Fallow song keeps circling round and round my brain – will I still know these people in a year? I know that the people who matter will still be there but it’s always a shock realising who is actually worth your time. This summer has really been my ‘coming of age’ so they say (anyone remember that TV programme? I loved that) and I’ve realised a lot of things about the person I am and the people around me.
This post has ended up being a tiny bit more sentimental and depressing than I thought it would be, do not get me wrong I am beyond excitement for the future and this absolutely massive step in my life but it’s only natural to have that little niggle of anxiousness.
In other news, I’m going to London! I realised I hadn’t actually mentioned it on here, but my boyfriend and I booked up just after my birthday and I can’t control my excitement. I’ve been to London once before but I don’t quite remember it and I’m pretty sure it rained. Our only major plan right now (well the only thing we have booked to do) is the Harry Potter Studio Tour, but I’m sure there will be plenty of sightseeing and shopping too. Any recommendations of shops, restaurants or places to see?
