Today was my 20th birthday, and I’m over-excited about the fact that I’m no longer a teenager. (Also, 365 more days until I can legally drink! But who’s counting, right?!)
I remember reading an interview with Hayden Panettiere in Seventeen magazine back in 2009. I remember the interviewer asking her what it was like to finally be 20. She said that now that she’s 20, people pay more attention to her opinions and take her more seriously. I agree. I got extremely annoyed being labeled as a teenager even though I was clearly and legally an adult. But those days are gone now.
Meanwhile, I’m enjoying articles this one. They make me feel like I’m a step ahead of the pack. (Serena Dyer is an incredible human being, btw.)
Yesterday afternoon I found a few childcare positions for the UT Austin daycare. Even though I have years of experience working with children, those years of experience have taught me that I love children, but I don’t really enjoy “watching” children. It’s draining and routine.
