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

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

5 Of The Most Thrilling 'My Favorite Murder' Podcast Episodes

From a man hiding in walls to a crazed vampire murderer.

Do you take long road trips and need something else other than the 17 songs that you play on repeat? Do you have a weird interest in serial killers, conspiracy theories, and unsolved murders? Then turn off your Tim Ferriss podcast, (no offense Tim, I love the heck out of your content) and turn on "My Favorite Murder."

"My Favorite Murder" podcast is a true crime comedy podcast that is hosted by America comedians Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark which started in January 2016 and has only got weirder and better since.

This podcast has debuted as number 25 on the iTunes podcast charts and eventually reached number three on April 27, 2018. They have hundreds of episodes to choose from, but there are some that are a MUST listen.

1. Episode 137: Gloogle 

This is my personal favorite because of how eerie I felt when listening to this. It's about a man that hides in this girl's house and stalks them while living inside the walls. He plays tricks on them, writes creepy messages on the wall, and basically makes them think that they are going insane themselves. I recommend listening to this when driving at night to make the experience 10x scarier.

2. Episode 10: Murderous TENdencies 

If you are a squeamish person, I don't recommend you listening to this one because it's pretty disturbing. It's about Richard Chase, also known as the Vampire of Sacramento who would often drink his victim's blood after killing them, and did other various acts that were inhumane.

3. Episode 150: How Dare You Kelli 

Karen and Georgia cover the hanging of Alice Riley and the murder of Reyna Marroquín. They go into detail about how Alice is the first woman ever hung in Georgia. Shortly after she gave birth, she was executed, and apparently, her ghost still lingers the area and multiple sources have seen her.

4. Episode 136: The Uninhibited 

In this week's episode, Karen and Georgia uncover the frightening murder of the well-known New York architect, Stanford White. He was brutally murdered on the roof garden of Madison Square Garden, a building that was one of his greatest achievements.

5. Episode 130: Mike Is Right 

I also personally enjoyed this episode because this story was mentioned in American Story Horror Coven (watch ASAP if you haven't watched already. Karen and Georgia explain the execution of Czar Nicholas II and his family, which ended the three-century-old Romanov dynasty.

These are just a handful of the hundreds of episodes that Karen and Georgia explain in their witty and comedic ways. I feel like after you listen to these episodes you will be hooked right away, and "My Favorite Murder" will be your new favorite podcast to listen to.
