Something I Read

I just finished reading "Honeymoon" by Amy Jenkins. While I found her writing style to be kind of cumbersome, which made parts of the book difficult to get through, I found this one passage that quite accurately sums up how I feel about being a "grown-up" sometimes.
"I thought about how much I hate the way that when you're grown-up you have to carry your own life around everywhere, the whole time. With no respite, goddamnit. I felt like a pack-horse who'd just faced up to the fact it was going to have to carry the Taj Mahal over the Himalayas." - The Honeymoon by Amy Jenkins.
