*I'll Give You a Topic...

Are you an adult? If yes, what makes you think so? If not, what's keeping you from adulthood?

Combat made me an adult.

I think I'm an adult because I take care of my responsibilities (mortgage, child, husband), I do not feel like an adult because I have no real career direction in life. I still walk around saying things like "I wanna drive a tank when I grow up" (of course I can't drive a tank, but that's beside the point)

According to the dictionary yes. At 36 I meet the age requirement. As far as maturity yea, however, hopefully there is always more growth(might be confusing getting wiser). Of course I can still be a big kid which I think is good.

Yes, I guess I really am an adult. Despite the fact that my thought processes are consistently juvenile I'm able to recognize my responsibilities and act in a mature fashion to resolve problems. No matter how much I'd rather park in front of the GameCube and play MarioCart.

I guess I'm old enough to be an adult, but when I look at others around my age or older, with careers and goals and GIC's I think "damn ... I am just a child".

And then I talk to my nephew who's 14 and we speak the same language, laugh at the same jokes it even makes me wonder more.

So no, I am not an adult, even though I have a wife and child and a mortgage and ... and...
