Growing on Up

So this weekend I went to a friend of mine's wedding. On the surface a normal occurrence, but lying in bed now it does not feel that way.
This was a friend who I have known for over 6 years. To me that is an old friend. Anyway, now she's married and leading a different life. I don't mean that in a bad way, but by comparison I am still somehow studying and she's married and working. This led me to look around the room at the wedding and see that most people were working. This has two influences, money and work stories. Very different to a lot less money and student stories. I digress, point being I think it may be time to grow up a bit.
Then again, am I ready to be sucked into a consumerist world where one works from paycheck to paycheck looking for security and a place to feel safe. This was another debate that was had on the trip to and from the wedding- security vs freedom. It is human nature to want security, but the way of the world has resulted in this diminishing their freedom.
So anyway, I suppose if you want to learn anything from all of this it is that we all have to grow up at some point but I am quite keen on keeping my freedom!
Be a free grownup
