Who knew that being an adult could be this much fun! Although sarcasm oozes from my tone and I sometimes long for those carefree days of my childhood, I am somewhat comforted by the growth that has occurred from childhood to womanhood. Many of the things I used to do as a young girl, I wouldn’t dare do as a woman; but of course that’s a part of growing up.
While each of us go through different growing pains and have different ‘ahh-ahh’ moments that declare our adulthood, I think we can agree that some of these things serve as our ‘girl you know you’re grown’ moments. From having a circle of married friends to learning to save before you spend, check out these sometimes overlooked signs that you’ve come oh so far in age and wisdom.
You Cringe At New Music and Reminisce When You Hear Some Of The Music You Used To Love

While there are times when I am out socially and it doesn’t bother me, more times than not I cringe when I hear some of the foul and overly-sexual music others are dropping it low to. So when a ’90s jam comes on, I get excited (and happy on the inside) because most music from the past I would consider my ‘jam’. I’ve decided that this taste in music is easily chalked up to me getting older and wiser.
From constantly talking about money, cars and…well, you know the other one (*sad face*), many rappers go through that stage where they only talk about ignorant ish. Whether it’s to garner mainstream fans or because that’s simply all they’re into, it has become the regular routine. But there comes a point in life when every player has to grow up, and that usually occurs when the once making-it-rain-in-the-club bachelor meets the right woman and starts a family. Or so we hope. A handful of rappers we were once lusting after, waving our hands to in the club and singing their lyrics in the car that we couldn’t say outside of it, have subtly grown up before our eyes. Check out our list of rappers who we are glad to see have decided to get some act right for all the right reasons.
