One little blip that caught my eye:
Sociologists traditionally define the “transition to adulthood” as marked by five milestones: completing school, leaving home, becoming financially independent, marrying and having a child.
So According to sociologists... I'm only 2/5ths of an adult.
Sometimes I feel like an adult... and sometimes I think this sounds about right.
I may be almost 26 years old with a J.D. living 850 miles away from home, but I think until I am actually financially independent, I won't feel like an adult.
As for marrying and having a child? No... I don't feel like I need those things to be an adult.
But on the other hand my friends who are married and/or have kids certainly seem to lead more "adult-like" lives than I do.... (aka my married friends are more boring than my single friends and party less).
So... what do you think.... are you an adult? Is this a good indicator of adulthood?
