LOS ANGELES, CA — According to freshman Leah Wolfe, sophomore Emily Griffiths can add a new item to the resume she probably has: embodiment of adulthood.
Wolfe, who hails from Bedminster, New Jersey and recently celebrated her 18th birthday, met Griffiths in a shared General Education class and has not stopped thinking about the slightly older girl’s full planner and numerous club leadership positions.
“She has it all figured out,” Wolfe said. “She’s held a minimum wage summer job and lives in apartment-style housing. I mean, her floor still has an RA, but it barely counts.”
When asked about her daughter’s adult ways in a phone interview, Griffiths’ mother laughed so loudly and for so long she neglected to answer the question.
Griffiths shared her mother’s apparent confusion. In an exclusive interview, Griffiths, who showed up in stained sweatpants, Nike slippers and half-braided hair, shouted an illegible excuse about “midterms” and ran back to her apartment-style housing.
Wolfe, however, was undeterred.
“I know what adulthood looks like, and this is it,” she said. “What could be more grown-up than a 19 year-old with 48 college credits?”
