Stop This Train

So I turned twenty on April 3rd, and I don't think I ever felt so young. Some of my friends are talking about marriage, having babies, buying houses, buying cars... I just never thought how scary life gets when you get older. My sister's talkin about investments, large purchases, and all these financial words that I SHOULD understand (seeing as how I worked in a financial management company all of last summer), but I don't. The whole world develops a new vocabulary each year you get older, and I DON'T HAVE THAT UPDATED VERSION.
Haha, but I suppose life does get more exciting. The things that used to bother us as a kid aren't very important now. Its nice to know that in some ways, I'm growing up, even if day-by-day I don't feel it. I know twenty's not really that old (it's the new "fifteen" according to Nico), but I know there are a lot of responsibilities that come with not being a teenager anymore. 

I'm a... a Big Girl Now... hahahaha

And I know that God has a lot of work to do in me too.

So, now that I know I really can't stop this Train, its exciting to know that I'm on my way to becoming the woman that God wants me to be. 

Hopefully my art will do some growing up too. ;)

Don't stop this train
Don't for a minute change the place you're in
And don't think I couldn't ever understand
I tried my hand
Janine, honestly we'll never stop this train

That's an awesome picture!!
Each of them look exactly like you!

I wonder what the 5th or even 6th character of you would look like.
Maybe you won't be holding on to the hand of your previous self.

Perhaps one that's standing tall and looking straight ahead..or maybe even one that's looking up?

Who will Janine be when she hits another milestone...hmmm lol

Anyway, keep blogging! I think I'm your number 1 fan here. LOL
