18 Going On 80

Eight telltale signs you're way past your mid-life crisis and headed toward "the facility."

18 Going On 80

As my time in college has moved forward and my months into adulthood have progressed, I've realized that I am becoming an old lady. If you knew it was going to happen eventually, but thought it would be at 80, rather than 18, these are some of the telltale signs that it may be time to give up on the bikini style and purchase your first pair of granny panties.

1. When someone comes to your home you basically force fed them and make them drink a beverage.

“I’m sorry, but you have no option. You will eat these cookies I baked.”

2. The kettle is always on the stove, ready to brew a good cup of conversation.

“So, how do you feel about that?”

3. You’re always the last person to know what’s going on.

“What? Susan and Jonny are dating!? When did that start happening?”

4. You bake out of boredom.

“I made this Bundt cake the other day. Why? Oh, no reason.”

5. Your idea of a fun night is staying in.

“It's like a pajama party without the party!”

6. When you look in your closet and you realize you’ve been wearing some of the same clothes for half a decade, yet you have nothing to wear.

“I think the last time I wore this was my freshman year…of high school.”

7. The only radio station you have programmed is NPR.

“Did you hear about the new carrot disease circulating through the Arctic?"

8. Some days, you realize you are just too old to put up with petty crap.

Because you just feel that old.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
