13 Signs You're Barely Making It As An Adult, As Told By Winston Bishop

"Saturday is a day for sleeping and I won't let you take that away from me."

13 Signs You're Barely Making It As An Adult, As Told By Winston Bishop

Working full-time has its perks, especially if you love your job, but as you get older and start doing more adult things, you realize how precious time is. Your life becomes a little routine and you get home and all you want to do is eat, get in bed, and fall into the black hole that is Netflix.

If you're struggling with being an adult and working full time, you're not alone. One of the best characters from TV that would relate to this would be Winston from "New Girl."

Here are 13 signs you're barely making it as an adult as told by Winston:

1. When someone asks you to hang out during the week after working a long 8 hour day

2. Crying every Sunday night because the next day is Monday

3. Spending all of your paycheck on snacks from the vending machine

4. You feel obligated to prove that you're an adult to people younger/older you

5. People younger than you come to you for advice when they start to get a taste of the adult life

6. And then they start complaining like you do and now you have something to bond over


7. You're getting to the age where you no longer settle just to get into a relationship

8. You start to practice self-care

9. You're on your third emotional breakdown today

10. You have so much to do but you're physically and mentally exhausted and trying to force your brain to shut off for a bit

11. You've gone on so many interviews that you're burnt out and not really sure how to sell yourself

12. Someone starts telling you about dieting and you're like

13. You struggle with how to spend your free time

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
