19 Unconventional Ways You Know You’ve Reached Adulthood (Even If You Still Feel Like A Child)

November 13, 2016

Ill be honest: most times, even at the ripe ol age of 33, I dont feel like an adult. Its probably the not-married/not-a-parent thing, but also the fact that I tend to have some lets call themimmature interests and also still goof off like a teenager.

But there are definitely times in my life (and theyre becoming more and more frequent) where I do or say something and its like, ohshit. IAMan adult. That happened.

Basically, you know youre an adult when

1. You cant remember a damn thing. Why did I come in this room? What was I looking for? Where am I? Who am I?!

2. You buy less beauty products focused on young-people-problems like acne/breakouts and focus more on anti-aging thingsBECAUSE WRINKLES.

3. Sure, buying clothes, shoes and bags is fun but have you ever been to HomeGoods?!

4. Hangovers last approximately 72 hours.

5. You start taking probioticscause you heard theyregood for digestion.

6. Going out and socializing sometimes feels like a chore, also whys this bar so friggin loud?!

7. Oh, the party starts at 11pm? Thats cute; have fun.

8. You say things like,When I was younger we didnt even HAVE GPS systems (seriously, I just said this to someone recently)

9. Bills. SO. MANY. BILLS. Ones that come in the paper variety via regular mail or electronic ones that arrive via emailtheyre everywhere.

10. Your idea of good comedy on television is The Daily Show.

11. You watch things like the MTV Music Awards and wonder who TF these kids are and also WAIT HOW IS THIS EVEN CONSIDERED MUSIC?!?

12. You wave bye-bye to your once-fast metabolism and now suffer the consequences of eating unhealthy (seriously, one bad night of eating and your jeans wont fit the next day).

13. You watch ALL THE DOCUMENTARIES.

14. You say asinine things like,Its too late for me to have coffee; Ill never sleep tonight.

15. After a long week at work, you rush home on Friday nights JUST to plop on the couch in sweats and order takeout. #Bliss

16. Unlike your childhood, sleep has now become your best friend. Your best friend who you dont see enough, who you think about often and who you want to spend time with more than anyone else.

17. Dressing for comfort > dressing for style.

18. Youre always cold. Can someone lower the AC in here? Can you toss me that blanket?! Being an adult means being freezing, always.

19. EVERYTHING HURTS.
