Getting old(er)

It's already the second week of my second semester and time is flying by. Sometimes I think I can't wait to graduate and not have to worry about homework and paying tuition. And then I realize that there will be bigger things I'll be worrying about: money, parenting, paying bills, money, jobs, fulfilling a calling, etc. So life isn't going to get any easier. 

The longer I'm here at college, the more I'm beginning to realize that life will never be the same again. I will never get to be the carefree kid I once was...how sad. I occasionally (...often) wish I could go back to being a kid. But then I remember everything I have learned and my newly aquired independence :)  And the many things I don't miss, like being super chubby and having crooked teeth.

 I'm trading in my childhood and carefree days, and in return I'm getting adulthood and responsibility. Is this fair? I haven't decided yet. I'm stuck between used to being a kid and becoming an adult.
