Seriously. I'm 27 years old, I have a full time job, I've completed my car payments, rent living space, pay my own bills. I'm definitely not a kid. But I still refer to myself as a "girl" or a "young woman". And I still feel young and out of place in certian situations . . . around people the same age as or younger than me. It's odd.
On one of the unseasonably warm days not too long ago, I walked to the playground down the street with a group of people my own age. We were taking the puppy for some exercise, but we still ended up climbing on junglegyms and swinging on swings and sliding down slides and jumping around. At one point I wondered how that must look to the actual children. I don't remember being that age and seeing groups of adults acting like that. One adult, sure, playing with a child. But five? Without children? Seems strange.
Not that it bothers me. I'm pretty happy with my age and my life situation and my state of mind. But I still think about it.
