Call for Submissions: OMG I’M THE ADULT

A perfect example of a blog that’s brilliant in it’s simplicity, OMG I’M THE ADULT is currently looking for submissions of your story about the moment you realized that you weren’t a kid anymore.

Whether it happened when you started your first post-college job, bought your first home, or simply the first time somebody called you “Sir,” the moment you suddenly notice that your all grown up is a huge milestone in anyone’s life. So, why not go ahead and share your story with the rest of us? And let’s not get too down on the idea of growing old. Because honestly, I’m a firm believer that being an adult is way more fun than being a teenager if you do it right. There is evidence to support this theory.

    Mine happened when I was married and expecting my first child and knew that some one was depending on me. Instead of it if it happens oh well attitude. It makes a difference knowing that some one survival depends on you and you grow up.
