If only I had some A’s to go along with these Q’s

30 Sep

To be successful you have to be dumb enough to think you can change the world and smart enough to know how. –Clint Borgen.

As it turns out, when I ask myself what I want to be and do when I grow up, all I can think about is changing the world. And then I immediately wonder at what point someone becomes grown up. Are there requirements to grown-upness? Like, do you have to have a career instead of just a job? Do you have to be married/commited to someone with an equal or greater amount of grown-upness?  Does your closet have to be a certain size and contain certain grown up things? Do you have to have such grown-up things as emergency savings accounts and credit cards? Do you have to own a house? What about pets? Do pets have anything to do with grown-upness? Is grown-upness really all that necessary? Are naps authorized?

    Naps are absolutely authorized, even better with a nap-worthy partner. Also, every woman should have professional clothes (and shoes!) that make her look sharp.

    Sigh. Yes, yes, yes. I’ve been thinking about stuff like this a LOT lately.

    Naps are a requirement for happiness and grown-upness is not necessary for happiness. That’s all I have.

    i don’t think naps have ever been more important in my life than they are now (well, maybe as a wee tot). naps are the best thing ever.

    also, i’m nearly 30 and just bought a hello kitty folder for work. i’m not ready to be a grown-up!
