At what point do you stop being a girl and become a woman?
That sounded so awkward.
It's just, recently, I've been understanding what the hell Britney Spears was talking about with that song "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman." I used to not get it, you know? I always thought it was like you went to sleep one night a girl that knew nothing and you woke up the next morning and suddenly you were this successful and wise woman and it was just easy and yay.
Except now I'm stuck in this weird place in my life where I'm not a little girl, but I'm definitely not any sort of wise woman either. It's this awkward stage where I'm somewhere in the middle, not quite sure which category I fit in.
Some days I'm all throwing a tantrum over the smallest things and other days I'm all mature and being responsible. Some days I'm in a pigtails and t-shirt mood and other days I feel like a classy summer dress and heels. There's nights like Sunday night when the girl in me is overjoyed about something as simple as kicking (her boyfriend's) ass at bowling, then there's times when the woman in me is all knowing what she wants and is ready to get married and raise kids of her own.
Or is that the girl in me?
I'm so confused.
There needs to be a term for girls/women my age. I mean, really, I would like to fit into a category so I can stop feeling like I need to pick one of the other ones. Anyone with me?
Let's think of a name for this stage of our lives. Ready go.
