Playing Grown-up

When I graduated from college and got my first job I was amazed. I was actually out on my own. My first job was working for a Texas State Congressmen. I had some responsibility and was left to my own devices a lot. I was expected to get things done in a timely manner without follow up. I was a grown-up. I didn't feel like a grown up though. I couldn't believe anyone was trusting me with anything. I couldn't believe that piece of paper (my diploma) qualified me to do a job, any job.
I still felt that way when I moved to DC. I couldn't believe I picked up and moved here. I felt like I was just playing the part of an adult and at any point an time someone would figure out that I had no idea what I was doing. That moment never happened.

Now it is almost 5 years later. I don't feel like I am playing the part anymore.I really feel like an adult. I'm not sure when that transition happened. I'm not sure at what point people go from being in that college mentality versus the adult mentality. It's kind of scary knowing that you are on your own, but it's also freeing to know that you don't have to answer to anyone else on your life.
Just food for thought.

Finding the Perfect Dress

I am going to a cocktail party this Sunday. I need to wear cocktail attire. I have plenty of dresses to choose from, but I am torn as what to pick from my closet. I have a burgundy tea length dress, a black tea length dress, and a patterned tea length dress. Ladies
