Be young and free, that's what they say but being a third year student, I came to wonder what life is after college. Since i'm studying far from home and living alone, being an adult is all that I'm not but is trying to be. I tried making a list of things that I think makes a teen an almost adult.

1. YOU LOVE COFFEE
Before coming to the university I have never had a cup of coffee but now coffee is the only thing that fuels me. The smell and taste of hot coffee early in the morning is all that I need for the day and it is the only thing you need since you're saving your allowance.

2. YOU STRESS ON DUE DATES
Ah yes, due dates, deadlines, and more deadlines are what makes you crazy. From endless paper works and projects to payment of your rent (even though I'm still asking from my parents because I'm still a student and i have no job and also I spent most of my allowance on buying foods)

3. YOU ENJOY BEING ALONE
Well, because of all the negative things and the stress that came to my life, I came to love the idea of being alone. To unwind and let myself be just me. To meditate and reflect on things I have done.
