Growing pains?

At lunchtime today we had some small pondering about when was grown up - 21, 22, 23, 24 or is it not age related?? This discussion included the 4 pillars of grown-up-ness - car, live in life partner (we are very PC), mortgage, proper job.

The main reason for the discussion was that most of us are now approaching having 3 of the above, some lucky ones having all 4. but we don;t necessarily feel properly grown up. Maybe this all changes next week when we get paid and we have responsibilities....or maybe its a gradual process or morphing from students to adults.

Thoughts?

Hmm nice one...

Maybe "grown up" isn't as "grown up" as we thought when we were kids- but I guess that if you live on your own +/- life partner, drive your own car, go to work and in general arrange your own life, then you are a grown up.

My dad always said you're not grown up until you're at least 25. I like that, it makes me feel young.
