What's Your Favorite Aspect of Being All Groan Up


This week’s Chalkboard Question is: “What’s your favorite aspect of becoming All Groan Up?”

What's Your Favorite Part of Being All Groan Up

The comment of the week for last week’s question on what TV character you wanted to be growing up goes to Jocelyn! The three of those characters combined together would’ve been a pretty kick-a combo. Definitely Prom Queen material.

There’s definitely some serious perks to growing up. No more curfew. No sharing your car with your two younger sisters. No homework assignment due tomorrow that you start at 10 pm the night before.

So you tell me in the comments below, what’s your

favorite aspect of growing up? It’s the Chalkboard

Question of the Week.


What's Your Favorite Part of Being All Groan Up



  1. Carissa

    Well this depends on if we are referring to “groan” or “grown” – I like being all ‘groan’ up because I am more entitled to a good groan here and there as opposed to when I was 8 with little care in the world… If I think about one of the greatest things about being all ‘grown’ up, I would have to say it lies in the realm of learning how to answer some of those ‘why’ questions you ask when you’re 8.

    And to be honest, I like not having to wake mom up to tell her I’m home 😉

  2. Paul

    Carissa – Not having to wake your mom up and not having your mom wake you up. Both serious perks! Now I just have a baby to do it at 2 am, and 4am, and 6:30….hmm…

  3. Kate

    That I can eat not only icecream, but cake too, for breakfast whenever i want 🙂

  4. Andrea

    Same but with microwave popcorn 🙂

  5. Robert

    i don’t know what my favorite aspect is but the thing I miss from being little is forced naps!

    • Carissa

      Agreed Robert!!

  6. Flameheart

    Freedom! Lol. It’s the idea that you control your own life. Even if that’s scary sometimes, it’s also amazing.

      And lying in our beds, many years from now. Who would trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to tell our parents they may make our curfew but they’ll never take our freedom! (Not sure if I pulled that off 🙂

  7. Name

    I think my favorite part is becoming the “responsible one.” I recently started a grown up job at a office and I pay my own bills. Going to school full time and working a lot is stressful, but in a weird way, its wonderful. I’m busy with responsible things. I hated this at first, but now I’m starting to like it. Working sucks sometimes but its rewarding too.

  8. Annika

    The best thing about being a GROAN UP, is the right to have cookies and cream ice cream for breakfast, yet not doing it because you’re actually becoming the ‘responsible’ person your parents tried to create throughout the tough teenage years!

  9. Marika

    Perspective! Growing up I’d hear “Don’t sweat the small stuff,” but it’s only with age that I’ve caught on to just how many things count as small stuff and how few are truly crucial. What a relief!
