I spend way too much time doing things like tax. Do you find that? You don’t feel like a grown up yet but somehow you’re dealing with HMRC and attending parents’ evening.
I’ve been feeling lately that I *should* be acting more like a grown up and living less like a student. And yet, here I am still making it up as I go along. Do you get the same feeling?
Maybe turning 35 will magically transform me into the kind of person who has their finances together or maybe I’ll still be ramshackle when I’m 70. I think perhaps the real trap about being a grown up is that you’ll somehow be different to the person you were when you were a child. And I never could quite summon the enthusiasm to tidy my room even then.
When I was in Salt Lake City earlier this year I had time for a quick portrait photo shoot with Audrey Wagner King and Izzy Hudgins. Audrey did my hair and make up then I headed outside to meet Izzy for photos.
There is quite possibly nothing I enjoy more than playing with cameras – on both sides of the lens. Despite having only landed in the US a few hours earlier after a particularly grim flight I totally felt renewed to be gurning and giggling with Izzy.
I guess might never grow up and that’s fine by me. So long as I can keep dressing how I feel and messing around I think I can cope with all the tax forms.
