"I used to stay up until 4am with a drink in my hand, music on, surrounded by cackling friends. I stay up till the same time now but with an empty coffee cup as my company. Deadlines after all. I used to get excited by which boy liked my picture. Now I'm excited when my local stocks the pomegranates I love. I'm not boring. I'm just exhausted. Growing up is fun. Right? Or at least it'll come good. All this effort will pay off in the end. That's the idea anyway, that's what I've been told. Look how happy all these adults look."
