turning 21 next month

I am not going to lie; turning 18 sounded fun, but the thought of being 21 next month is making me a little nervous. I mean, do not get me wrong, it it exciting but scary at the same time. Once you turn 21 you are finally legal everywhere around the world which technically makes you an adult. I moved out from my parents' house when I was 19 so I suppose you would think I felt like an adult then, but I didn't. Even now when I am 20 (omg, it is weird writing it down) I do not feel like a complete adult. I still get ID'd anywhere I go, I have a baby face and dress like a 12 year old, so why should I act like an adult?

Maybe the thing that scares me is the fact my mum was married when she was 20 and had me when she was 21 so I feel like I haven't achieved much in my life. I don't have a stable job, I live off student loans and eat cereal for breakfast; is that what real adults do? Whenever I was little I thought that by the age of 21 I will have my own house (rented), a dog or two and will be planning my wedding soon but the reality is completely different. I like the stage I am at. I live with my boyfriend in a little flat and I couldn't be happier. I don't feel like I am ready to grow up. Can I stay this age forever, please?

I have been talking to people about this lately and believe me, I am not the only one who feels that way. Your 21st is supposed to be the greatest night of your life. You go out drinking, wake up hungover and cannot move for two days straight due to the headaches; nice way to enter adulthood.
