    I’m 35 and most days I STILL don’t feel like a grown-up. I feel like a balder, fatter 18-year old who someone foolishly allowed to have his own bank account. I don’t know very many people my age who don’t feel this way some or even most of the time, and the people who don’t feel that way I generally find pretentious and elitist in the extreme. Also, I think they are lying.

      Thanks for the comment Brian! On the one hand, I am glad to know it’s normal to never truly feel like a “grown-up,” no matter what your age. But on the other hand, it makes me a little nervous I could always feel uneasy about whether I’ve got an “adult-like” handle on things. I’m hoping there is a balance at some point though where you feel secure with the fact that you feel insecure.
