The Circle Game: Life Moves Fast

“Life goes by pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Ferris Bueller

What makes you a grown-up? At age 24 it’s something I’m constantly wondering these days.  Graduating college?  Getting a “real” job?  Marriage? Babies?  Honestly I’m beginning to think that there is no “a-ha” moment and you just kind of stumble into all of those things and just hope for the best – but I suppose it’s probably different for everyone.  What about you?  And if that “a-ha” moment does exist – what are some songs that reflect on that point in life when you realize that – whatever the trigger – it’s happened?
