Commute, Interupted.

I would like to thank NPR's Morning Edition for their segment on emerging adulthood this morning.

As a 27 year old who can't quite picture herself being married and DEFINITELY cannot concieve (no pun intended) of having a child anytime soon, I am glad to know there is a term for me.

An EMERGING adult.

Basically I will look for any excuse not to consider myself a true for real adult. I'll get there someday though. I promise, Mom!

In local news



The way all the cars are going? That is how I get on the highway. GOOD TIMES.

So I am working from home this morning. Hopefully in a few hours I can hit the roads and not end up fishtailing into a snowbank every few minutes.



And for all my fellow emerging adults (or adults in denial) - some good holiday cheer




Click, Watch, Laugh.

Married, own a house. Still don't feel like an adult.

This is completely unrelated to this post, but I need your fabulous entertaining expertise. If you were throwing a small soiree on New Year's Eve and wanted to serve people a bunch of appetizers instead of a heavy dinner, what would you feed them? Bonus points for easy but tasty suggestions.

Given the weather, I think the *grown up* thing to do would be for you to stay home all day- only kids would go out and drive in a mess like that. ;)

Hmmm... I think I'm one of those too! A coworker brought in her sister's baby today and I was really not that interested... am I a bad female? :o) I get much, much more excited when someone brings in a puppy.

Ahaha Randall I am right there with you...
Puppies > Babies for me as well.

OH and Meg I will put a list together for you and email it tonight!

Meg said...

Cool. You're the best. I just don't want my peeps to be hungry.

That is/was me. Gabe has been talking about getting married for a while (years) now (casually mentioning it) and it kind of FREAKED me out. Not that I don't love him and all that, but it was kind of whoa, lets wait until we're at least 25, etc. I can't lie, although I'm not into babies (yikes!), I am defintely getting into the idea of getting married. I am everything about the article though, close with family, etc etc.

I think it was just comforting to read that other people my age feel hesitant about moving forward to the next stage of their life.

Emerging lifestyle. Hmmm. I tried it on and it fits flawlessly, like a great pair of jeans. I agree, my peers who have children are parents, no longer people :-). I'll take my selish lazy-saturday, spontaneous trip taking lifestyle anyday! My philosophy is that 30s is for family, 20s is all about me.
