I recently joined Facebook and have found a lot of people that I grew up with. These "peers" of mine and I never really saw eye to eye doing teenagerdom and so it has surprised me how easily I have found myself talking to them and actually feeling comfortable with it. And then I realized something. In my teen years I always felt more comfortable around adults than anyone my own age. Give me a middle-aged lady over a teenager any day. Now I feel more at ease talking to the peers of my teens because they are all in about the same situation in life as me and have finally entered the place I've been in for years- Adultland. I am so glad though to be able to reconnect and develope real relationships with those who share memories of those interesting years. It makes me feel... adult.
