Hey mom, I'm an adult now

Hey guys!
I just came home from my friend's kid's baptism and it dawned on me when we were in the church that I'm actually an adult now. My friends are starting families, buying houses, working, having family vacations. And I'm not there yet, and it sucks. I wish with all my heart that I was mature enought and I felt like I was done with being "just" me, and ready to start my adult life, but I'm not. I still want to travel, become something (preferably a writer), have friends from every continent, dine out 7 days a week for a month (without gaining weight obviously), and just be me. If I wanna drive across the US while listening to music and not wearing a bra, who's gonna stop me? I don't want anything or anyone slowing me down! But at the same time it looks kinda nice with the strollers and cuddles and baby clothes, and the thought of sharing that with my friends, instead of going through it alone several years from now when my friends kids already left kindergarten.

I want everything at the same time and I know I've said to myself "take your time, build a plan of your future life and try to stick to that, but don't do anything of it until you're 25", because I don't wanna sit there at 27, wishing for a year long vacation. I'm taking all the laziness now and then it's all about working hard after that. Which also is stupid because if I had any dreams, why wouldn't I just start working on them as soon as possible so that I actually reach them?!

Other than that, the baptism was fine and the celebrationa afterwards was okay too. The only thing though is when you go to stuff like this while single, you hear at least once "hey this is my... and he's single too, so now you can not be single together". Yeah no, that's not how it works, and I'm also not looking for something right now. If you see a single person at the next gettogether, leave them alone. That's all.
Now I'm gonna watch Airbud 2 with my bud Polly, and hopefully write a bestseller and show myself that I'm actually not garbage.

Love you guys
Love you mom
