20 things I still do that aren't age appropriate

Because adulting is hard

20 things I still do that aren't age appropriate
Activist Post

Once you hit college, most people consider you to be an adult. But most things I still do aren't cute for an adult.

1. Whining about needing a nap

2. Taking at least one nap almost every day

3. Letting laundry pile up for my mom to do the next time I go home

4. Not having a job

5. Spending my parents money

6. Giving people the silent treatment

7. Watching Netflix when I know I should be doing homework

8. Having my roommate read 90% of my texts to guys before I send them because "I don't know how to talk to them"

9. Killing a bug by spraying it with air freshener because it "seemed easier"

10. Cleaning everything with Clorox wipes because I don't want to buy different products for the shower, floor, sink, etc

11. Staying up until 2:00 am during the week

12. Sleeping with a light on because I heard a creepy noise and I'm home alone

13. Eating more candy than an "adult" should

14. Still owning body glitter from Claire's

15. Relying on spellcheck for words like restaurant, lieutenant, and meringue

16. Being moved to tears, unexpectedly, by a Taylor Swift song

17. Never wanting to dirty a dish

18. And when there are dishes, letting them pile up before soaking them in the sink for hours.

19. Never cooking a real meal, mainly because I don't know how

20. And if I ever have to adult, I complain about it endlessly

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek.
