Adult Life in the Perspective of a Youngster

Grown ups have it so easy and have it all figured out. I can’t wait until I’m an adult and I have full control on my life. I mean, look at my parents. They are happy. It seems as if waking up is easier when you’re an adult. They are awake at six in the morning, all energetic. Mom prepares our lunch boxes, while Dad makes breakfast and wakes me and my siblings up. And let me tell you, the process of me waking up takes forever. Oh how I wish I could become an adult as fast as possible. So after we have breakfast, my mom loads the dishwasher and after that she gets ready for work. 

Now, I’m not gonna talk about what my parents do at work, because I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s pretty easy. They’ll just do everything at work and get it over with by the time they’re home. I never saw them do any office work at home. On the other hand, I have to study for exams, do my homework, socialize, work on school projects, etc. On top of that, my parents make money but I don’t make anything. Actually, they don’t let me spend a lot of money because apparently, to them having a job is more tiring than being a student. Ugh my life won’t get easier any time soon! 

When I get home after a day at school, I take a nap for around an hour or an hour and half because I’m so tired. But Mom is immediately in the kitchen making dinner. That’s because adults have more energy and don’t feel tired like us. After dinner, we all help around the house, because according to my parents we’re not tired enough after school and should all help out with cleaning up. It’s weird how fast they forgot that being a student is really draining, both physically and mentally. 

When we finish dinner, Dad usually helps us if we have homework or some school related work. And then when it’s all done, maybe we watch something with the family until it’s our bedtime. But of course, adults don’t have that either. They can stay up as late as they want. There is no one to boss them around. I envy them for that.

Anyway, one day I’ll grow up too and I’ll do whatever I want. No one to tell me no or to tell me what to do. I’ll stay up or sleep in as much as I like. I won’t brush my teeth regularly. There won’t be any homework to do. These years will be the best years of my life.
