5 Things I Discovered After I Grew Up

Here is a list of 5 things I’ve learned about myself since becoming an adult.1. Green is my favorite color.

Perhaps its my hidden irish descent, but I’ve taken quite a liking to el color de verde. All the shades of green just seem to look good on me, and not to mention all the combinations in which green fits for decorating. Before growing up, black was my favorite color. Turns out, black isn’t even a color at all.

2. I’m allergic to pollen and penicillin.

I was the guy who made fun of those of you that suffered through allergy season. I’d say things like, “Really?! It’s just pollen.” Now I’m in the ranks of the suffering. In fact I thought I had no allergies at all. (As if I were Superman) But a mild case of strep almost killed me.

3. I’m going to be bald.

Now for those of you that know me from high school, you know that I used to shave my head. That was for fashion. Soon and very soon, it will be for necessity. Male-pattern baldness began to set in around 21. I discovered this depressing fact after trying to grow my hair out for dreads. Needless to say it didn’t work out.

4. I actually like vegetables.

Don’t get it twisted, I’m not a vegan or anything. However, I really enjoy all sorts of veggies. Either cooked or raw, veggies adds a great dynamic to every meal. Who knew?!

5. Football is the best sport, EVER!

I was a moderate sports fan, but basketball was my sport of choice. When I grew up and began to pay my own rent, I thought I should be more like the quintessential, red-blooded American man and watch football. I enjoyed it, but my love for the game didn’t take root until about 5 years ago. I started working on a job right at the beginning of football preseason, and if I wanted to be part of the conversation, I’d better pay more attention. Well, let’s just say: even though its basketball season now, I can’t wait for September!

The point is that we are always changing, always discovering things about ourselves. God made us that way. Take the time to briefly share 5 things you have learned about yourself since becoming an adult yourself in the comments.
