“Slept in” this morning. It feels like a Beyoncé day. It is imperative that I begin my days with coffee and music. You can thank my mom for that. I know being an adult includes doing things that you don’t necessarily want to do, or socialize with people you’d rather not, but I refuse to give in to that part of adulthood. I’ve been told it’s juvenile and inevitable and just something we all have to deal with in life. My question is why? I mean, I understand paying taxes, etc. so I suppose my issue is with the social aspect of this rather antiquated sentiment. The entire concept seems so absurd. My parents used to tell me “well you know what, if you don’t like our rules, when you grow up and you make the money and you have your own house you can make the rules.” Well guess what guys…. Actually they’re super awesome and I’ve only (jokingly) reminded them of that little bit of wisdom. This thought train is not aimed at my parents — they’re rad and I love them. This train’s tracks have been laid out for those of you that would try to control another person. Another adult. If I don’t want to see you, who says I have to? I’m being serious here for a moment. It is a societal pressure so many give in to that I’ve lost count. If we don’t jive, there’s nothing that says we must hang out with each other (even coworkers can be civil and keep conversations confined to business related topics only, though we all know gossip and drama make an office run. So high school. So plebeian.) So my observation is this: if I just don’t care for your presence, you and I will have minimal, if any, contact. Cheers.
