15 Signs You're Transforming Into A 'Real Adult'

15 Signs You're Transforming Into A 'Real Adult'

"Being an adult is the dumbest thing I have ever done"

1. You pay your own bills (on time)

From rent, car payments, and insurance to coffee orders and credit card payments, we pay it all now.

2.  Your metabolism changes

I think about a chocolate shake and my a$$ jiggles for a week.

3. You suffer from back pain and other various types of body pain

And other various types of body pain. Knee pain, neck pain, stomach pain, my whole body is in pain.

4. You handle your sh*t on your own

Because you're an adult now and can't call mom and dad every time a road block comes up.

5. Your bedtime changes

You used to be able to stay up until 6 a.m. But now you can't make it past 9 p.m. Any night of the week.

6. Your alcohol tolerance isn't where it used to be

You used to be able to down 14 shots of tequila in one sitting and be fine. Now after one glass of wine you're ptfo.

7. You'd rather stay in than go out

You've traded your nights out for cozy nights in with your fur babies.

8. You call people instead of texting

Because it's easier to call your friends office phone and ask them for dinner than it is to text them and wait all day for a response.

9. Every time you buy something you think, "That $50 Naked pallet from sephora costs as much as 5 hours of work." 

Is it worth it?

10. You have your very own Netflix account

No more sharing it with mom, dad, and all of your siblings.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
