I’m growing up, and I can relate to this one MGMT lyric, from a song I used to listen to at parties, so much more now:
Yeah, I’ll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone.
I like my life now. I don’t miss being single or broke and I definitely don’t miss the general insecurity (financial, emotional, mental) of being younger. But sometimes it feels like there is too much going on, too many people who depend on me, too many projects that would stop if I didn’t do the responsible thing all the time. I’ve tried to write about this, but nothing describes it better than that one line.
Does anyone know what I mean?
