Its coming round so quick! Usually I count down from January the first declaring its 9 months till my birthday and declare it the first of every month. Until August when I tend do it in weeks. However this year I've been pretty quiet and not said anything, slightly scared at the prospect of turning the big Two Zero. I initially called in Tweenteen as many of my other friends who have already turned 20 have called it. 20 means adulthood, responsibility, maturity, intelligence (according to Nintendo DS brain training), a new decade, 5 years away from a quarter century. However recently I started seeing it slightly differently. I may be 19 in my body but in my head I'm about 13. I'm sure that most other adults probably still feel much younger inside.
I then started to see turning 20 as a good thing. Although I'm not going to be a teenager anymore, thats not such a bad thing. Although there are some good things about being a teenager, the majority of the time adolescence sucks! For one you have puberty, Which is a bitch. Spots, mood swings, awkwardness, emotional, arguments, rebellion, braces, obsessions, hair dye, lots of firsts, lots of lasts, lots of sleep, lots of fucking heart ache and weird eating habits.
To be fair I'm sure not too much is going to change as a twenty year old (like the fact I still look the same as I did at 14) heck probably not till I've finished university but I'll be happy to say goodbye to a few things.
Punky Phase (Although I secretly wish I was still a punk)
