Today is the last day I’ll be on, except for Sundays, until Easter.
I love Kant, I do. Mostly because I realized while reading *Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals* that I agree with his approach to ethics and find his ideas intriguing. That being said, I didn’t imagine my 26th birthday would be spent writing a paper on his ethical theory for my Ethics class. I also found myself amazed that I went to church on my birthday, something I never would have done even a year ago. But, I also found myself amazed that I wouldn’t want to miss gathering with my extended “church family” for something so trivial as sleeping in on my birthday.
This new found sense of responsibility, community, and long-term goal oriented action in conjunction with some other things I’ve noticed lately leads me to the conclusion that I’m finally an adult, or something. Who knows? Anyway, I’m getting older (and drunker, but I digress), and it’s not as bad as I thought it would be when I was a stupid and rebellious child (read: 20 year old). I actually kind of love it…even the not-so-fun, scary parts.
