Yes. With all the drama and heartaches, I became a year older again.
My birthday this year felt quite different. I don’t know but deep inside me, a feeling of having to act maturely takes place. It’s funny how often it strikes me. Even while washing the dishes or preparing the pasta for the spaghetti. I feel it. I have to change now. I am 20.
A sudden sense of responsibility also seem to be pouring on me as if an invisible hand is pushing me towards a task that I am not actually doing before. Can it be called human nature? That feeling when you feel like you have to do something because you are old enough to do it.
But still, the little girl in me will never fade. I still have a lot of growing up to do and today is my first step towards it.
