“When was the first time you really felt like a grown up (if ever)?” (from 365-days-of-writing-prompts)
I guess the fist time I really felt like a grown up, was when I was fifteen years old (I matured early) and I “ran away from home”. I decided to hitch hike across Canada to British Columbia. In hind sight it really was not the most mature thing I could do.
The freedom I felt was fantastic. I really felt self-confident for the first in a long time.
Of course I had no idea that I was on a big manic high – Until I returned home and crashed into a bad depression about two weeks later and quit school, and had my first thoughts of suicide. I should have looked for help then but I had no Idea what was happening.
I don”t remember feeling too grown up then.
Stay tuned for the rest of my travel across Canada!

I practically live off of pills as it is. 18 in the morning and 16 at night.
If I could take another to take care of my nutrition needs too ⇒ Bring it on!
For a recent WordPress assignment to write about what is messier in my house. I whole heartedly nominate my computer desk. It is a multi-purpose flat space that allows around 40 percent to my computer, and around 60 percent for every other pierce of work I need to do, or was done but not filed-mailed-scanned-destroyed.
Looking at it now, I still have a broken table light sitting there a replacement. I bought the lamp, thinking I was environmentally conscious. It is a led lamp that apparently draws less power than a regular incandescent one. I had it for 2 weeks when it started flashing. I found this was very disturbing to my work,. I should turf the thing, but I have no place to recycle at my apartment building and to throw it out in the trash would be wrong.
As I further inventoried my desk, I have found bills that need paying. Empty pop bottles, again, waiting to be recycled. For some strange reason I have s candy thermometer beside my non-functioning lamp. Then the necessities; speakers. monitor, keyboard a mouse pad and mouse, head set (broken but fixable), internet router, and various other wires and stuff.
Not quite ready to wrap the thing up in caution tape; but close enough.
