Ain't life grand

Its weird how we think when we grow up and don't have as many rules, life will be so much more fun. Well it isn't. I mean all through high school I had a midnight curfew, and I remember thinking on numerous occasions that once I'm in university I will be out all night doing exciting things not worrying about curfews, calling the folks, etc. Well, I was out a lot but somehow it wasn't hugely exciting.
But there are other things as well. My parents would always wake me up for school at about 7 in the morning. My first couple weeks at school when I could sleep in as much as wanted, I would always get up at 7 anyway but I'd force myself to lie in bed till about 9 trying to convince myself that I was getting so much rest and having so much fun. Of course its another thing that eventually my schedule changed and now I consider getting up at 11 early.
But I still like growing up. Not because I have less rules now, but because life is just so much more exciting. I can get exciting jobs, go to grad school or law school, travel, buy a car, buy a house, get married, etc. Life is so fabulous right now, I feel like I can do anything with the rest of my life. I really hope I can hang on to this optimism forever.
