10 things that happen when you become an 'adult'

1. You spend far much more time than you would have thought thinking about things like whether you have locked the back door or not.

2. Your Facebook updates are slowly changing from "OMG LOLZ @ *insert BFF's name here* how much FUN was last night *monkey face*" to "Can anyone recommend someone to fix the dent in my car by this Friday?"

3. Your screenshots folder on your phone is filled less with savage conversations to more with bathroom inspo, engagements, pregnancy announcements and the occasional meme.

4. You actually start to find your parents funny, and not in an embarrassing, OMG no you did not just say that way, in an actually you're kinda cool and why didn't I realise this much sooner way. 

5. Your siblings will continue to annoy the hell out of you until the end of time.

6. Hangovers feel like near death experiences, and take a good couple of weeks to fade into distant memory before you can do 'Wino Wednesday's' again.

7. Wino Wednesday become an actual thing. 

8. So does social drinking for that matter. You no longer drink to get drunk, oh no, you drink because 'you fancy a glass of white with your dinner'. (Do we qualify for the cast of desperate housewives yet?)

9. Hot drinks start tasting a whole lot better, coffee and tea have become essential needs, contributing to basic daily survival. 

10. You start liking the clothes in Next. And no, they have not lowered the age of their target demographic, you're just getting old and morphing into a younger, ombre haired version of your mother. (But remember, parents are funny now - it's OK)

  4. "ombre haired version of your mother" hahaha I literally thought this today! Great post!

  5. People get easily fooled by glib salesmen and good advertising gimmicks into buying underwear in place of sexy adult costume. Customers must educate themselves regarding the difference between lingerie and sexy adult costume.

  6. I haven’t any word to appreciate this post.....Really i am impressed from this post....the person who create this post it was a great human..thanks for shared this with us. Beau

  7. Excellent information on your blog, thank you for taking the time to share with us. Amazing insight you have on this, it's nice to find a website that details so much information about different artists. 24 hour truck tire repair

  8. Because the brain always attempts to finish out what was done to it, it transforms the abuse survivor into the rescuer he himself once most needed and the pity he feels for others becomes the transposed emotion from himself to them.

  9. No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, thus he/she needs
    to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained
    over here.

  10. Schooling can be incredibly taxing for the adult learner - but is the end result worth it?IXGX
