WAIT! STOP THE CLOCK! i'm not ready to grow up yet...

Okay, I think I might barf. Seriously...

So first off, know that I am NOT judging anyone. I don't think anything less of anyone I mention in this post, I PROMISE!

One day I was sitting in the office cutting out paper hearts or something and these girls I'm with start talking about the wedding. I was EXTREMELY confused. Who gets married in high school? Then I found out it was some people that I knew. One that I've known since forever! I was pretty blown away. Then I found out that they have at least one kid... again, BLOWN AWAY. Right then I think I would have thrown up except for I hadn't eaten much so I needed to keep all food inside of me.

Then my neighbor across the road comes home from his MISSION. That means he's 21... no big deal, except that IT IS A BIG DEAL! This is a kid I've known my entire life. Now he's all grown up and preparing for marriage and junk. That's cool and all, but he's twenty FREAKIN one!

Then my neighbor down the road gets married. She's an adult and has every right to do that. But it was so weird seeing her with her husband at their reception. Isn't she still a little girl? My goodness.

Then I'm just barely sitting here playing on facebook, which I haven't done in a long time. And I see this name on my wall updates that I don't recognize. So I click on the name and BAM it's a girl I've known for so long! Turns out she got married last month and has an adorable baby girl.

One of my best friends is moving out and away! She'll be gone, just as quick as the day she appeared in my neighborhood ten years ago or so. WTM? She can't do that! She's what? Ten still? Honestly!

She's not the only one moving out and away, this other kid I know is doing it too! I know he's still about five, mentally, so he should really just stay put...for a long long long time. Maybe forever actually. He can't possibly be old enough to move out on his own! but he's doing it anyway!

WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED!? It's like I blinked and BAM everyone is all grown up! I can still remember being little with these people... and that's amazing because I can barely remember what I did last week! I am so not ready for this. I'm ready to sit back, relax and watch a little "te-vy." I am in no way ready to watch my friends grow up. Nope, not at all. No way, Jose. (Got it Jose? NO WAY!)

So if you'd be so kind as to stop the clock, I'd like to get off for a while.
