20 Things We Ask Our Dad In Our 20's

20 Things We Ask Our Dad In Our 20's

I promise this is the last time I ask you for money.

Growing up, I always heard how I was the spitting image of my father: sarcastic, stubborn, and always right (or at least we think so). I have always believed that my dad was my superhero. He has always been the man that could fix anything and had an answer for any question thrown his way.

I am now in my 20's and my dad is still that same man. We surely don't always see eye-to-eye on everything and often times most of our serious discussions end up in arguments, but he still knows best. He's the funniest, strongest, and most intelligent man I know. He's my hero without a cape.

My mother has been my go-to for when I need a shoulder to cry on or I'm having an emotional breakdown and need to hear someone belt out into song and dance; however, my father is who I run to when I need to toughen up or when I need to be told to "rub a little dirt on it." Sometimes, a girl just really needs her father.

I no longer live at home, but I call my father at least twice a day with every life question known to man. Here are 20 questions we still ask our dads in our 20's:

1. Is it okay that I'm 500 miles over on my oil change?

2. What does it mean when I try to start up my car and it stalls?

3. One of my tires keeps losing air, should I get it patched or just fill it up?

4. They said they can't patch it and I need to buy a new tire...do you have money?

5. My shower drain is clogged, what do I use to unclog it?

6. That didn't work,will a wire hanger do the trick?

7. My power went out, how long do you think my food will last?

8. So I shouldn't open the fridge?

9. So you're saying I need to eat all the ice cream tonight?

10. What is malware?

11. Okay, now how do I get rid of cookies and threats on my computer?

12. Dad, why are they even called cookies?

13. I know you just sent money last week, but can you send more? I'll pay you back.

14. Can you look over my essay for school?

15. Can you help with my FASFA?

16. Wait! While we're at it, can you help with my taxes?

17. What soap do I use to clean my car? Is there a certain way to 'wax on, wax off'?

18. My clothes aren't drying, what do I do? and the filter for the dryer is where...?

19. What should I major in?

20. Have I told you how much I love you today?

I Don't Miss High School, And I'm Not Sorry About It

The yearbook was closed and has been closed since I received my diploma.

High school: It's said to be the best four years of your life. However, I discovered that they had been the worst four of mine. I don't miss high school, not even for a split second. Why would I miss a place where everyone pretended to be my friend? Why would I miss a place where everyone knew everyone's business? Why would I miss a place where people had no better way to spend their time besides talking about each other and subtweeting each other? (Yes, I'm guilty of that, too.)

When I first walked through the halls of my high school, I was that lost, ugly freshman girl who thought it was necessary to look good every single day of the week. As the years went on, I was still a little ugly but had some type of "glo-up" each new school year.

I was never the student to be picked for anything. I ran for student council my freshman year and lost because it was a popularity contest, so I didn't run again. I played softball, but my talents were underappreciated, so I didn't come back my sophomore year. I tried almost everything offered at the school and could not find out where I fit in. Now that I look back, I'm different than everyone else I went to school with and I really don't fit in with who they are.

In high school, there was never anything to do. You couldn't drive until junior year, so bumming rides off of the older kids or walking everywhere was the most common form of transportation (because no one wants their mommy and daddy dropping them off). When the older kids finally got their licenses, it was a cool thing to jam out in the car five nights a week. Just driving around and wasting gas — why did we think it was fun?

The rumors and the pettiness in high school were overall ridiculous. No one can be themselves in high school without feeling uncomfortable about it. Everyone will judge you for whatever they can. I don't miss high school at all: Not the sports, not the students, not the place, not the food. Nothing is missed or worth looking back on. The worst four years of my life are over.

One year in college has been better and filled with more memories than four years in high school.

High school sucks. Point blank. Yearbook closed.
