The journey into adulthood

I reckon you change more between the ages of 19 and 23 than you do any other time before that. In your teens nothing about you intrinsically changes because you live at home and so any changes you make are really just changes in your look, as your lifestyle is still 'my mum looks after me'. When you leave home you're thrust into adulthood and you have to realise that you only live once, so playing around with serious personas or saying you're the kind of person who won't do this or won't do that might restrict you in living to the max, so you slowly mellow your teenage extremity and go with what you're most comfortable with. One of my favourite transformations out of folk I've known that long is straight edge vegan youth crew pudding-bowler with love of french post-hardcore and first person in Britain to join Myspace to shirtless alcoholic ginger rock pig big-shot photographer who eats steak borritos with both hands and could care less about seven-inches. Well done Megs.
