Can you identify a specific time in your life when you transitioned into an adult?
    #11378201 - 11/03/09 06:21 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

My direction and focus in life has changed completely in the past year.  I've chalked it up to "becoming an adult," whatever that means..  It's the only explanation I have.

My entire focus in life used to be about comfort and leisure.  Something I think most young people can relate to.  My usual interests like friends, bodybuilding, video games, partying.. all seemed to fade away almost overnight.  Suddenly the only things I can focus on are college, careers, and seeing the world.

I knew this would happen eventually, I just didn't expect it all to change so quickly.  I feel like I couldn't go back even if I wanted to.  Can anyone else relate to this?

not pinpoint one specific time/event.  it's been and still is a transition, though the last four years have brought much growth

Same thing has happened to me over the past year.

I am still transitioning lifewise but am about to move to another city in order to pursue my trade.

I think this will probably be the biggest step in my development away from adolescence, physically leaving my friends and comfort zone in search of something better/different.

Everything you posted, rings true in my life right now.

It's happened to me over the course of the past few years.  It's called maturing :shrug:

Nope, I find my growth has just been a steady flow. Building off other experiences, no real sudden drop off into the depths of "maturity" and "adulthood". Sure, I'm a working man that brings home the bread, but I'm still very much a child at heart. My heart still aches when I watch the lion king, I still play capture the flag and hide and seek, I even eat cheese and crackers and apple slices and watch after-school specials sometimes after work. I'll admit, that snack is usually preceeded by a bong chop, and there's alot more questions about the moral intent behind TJ pranking King Bob by putting a woopie cushion under his seat. Extreme political revolutionary in the works? I think so. Even so, I definitely look at the world with the eyes of my inner child, it makes things much more fun. Life to me is a jungle gym!

I'm going to be travelling soon, down the west coast all the way through to South America, with the maingoal of a shamanic ayahuasca experience and that promises to teach me a few things about life and being a man, but I'll always have the tree climbing, frog catching kid in me.

I think for me maybe around 22-23. But I will always have the kid inside me.

I used to be quite addicted to MMORPGs. I played Final Fantasy XI for 2 years during high school and my freshmen year in college. When World of Warcraft came out, I played that for about a year. Generally, I just considered myself a "gamer". I identified with it, and most of my friends were "gamers". Thats what we would do when we hung out. I'd be on my computer every day for over 5 hours or more...playing into the night.

One day, after a rather intense trip on mushrooms.....I just totally stopped all of it. I deleted my WoW account (much to the shock of my roommate who I played with all the time), and almost completely stopped playing video games. I came to the realization that I was using video games as a means of escaping from the real world....as a means of distracting myself and entertaining myself, since I wasn't really that social.

I decided that I wanted to do "real" things with my life instead. I made a commitment to being more active....to getting out of my house more, to making new friendships, to finding new hobbies.

What this realization resulted in was....I began to smoke weed every day, which was way more than I ever used to. I partied and drank much more frequently. I began to loose focus on my classes...and I convinced myself that I didn't even really want to be in college. I failed 3 classes and almost dropped out. Eventually I had to take a semester off just to figure out what I was doing and to get my head on straight.

I can see now how much being a "gamer" was a significant part of my life. It pretty much defined me and my friendships. Once I no longer had that escape to go into, I became severely depressed and lost touch with myself. I was facing reality and my life head on and I had never realized before that playing video games was my form of pressure release.

Its been kind of a long road since then, but I think I've come a long way as a person. I've learned so much about myself, and how I relate to other people. I see all my problems for what they are and instead of avoiding them, I am actively trying to understand them.

I often wish I was still a child though.

I don't think that distinction's necessary at all. I am who I am -- always have been, always will be.

Rather than focusing on becoming more 'adult-like,' I'd just like to work on self improvement. :shrug:

there were times in my life where I looked around and told myself "I have finally reached adulthood" but I have come to realise that I thought that prematurly. I no longer know what it feels like to be a kid and no longer know what is to be an adult.... So to answer your question, I guess I am in that transition period now

I'm 20, and I still feel nowhere near being an "adult." I don't know if I ever will:awesome:. I'm just a kid at heart I guess.

I've been supporting myself for the past 2 years too.
