Is It Acceptable To Own Stuffed Animals When You're 21?
Start writing a post

I've always had way too many stuffed animals. From a young age, my parents would buy me stuffed animals for almost every occasion. I'm not sure if that's because my mom was living vicariously through me (she loves stuffed animals) or if that's because I always asked for them. Either way, I grew to love stuffed animals with a burning passion.

Now I'm 21 and I still own a bunch of stuffed animals. I've grown so attached to the ones I received when I was a child that I can't bear to let them go, and for some reason I keep buying more.

So I just have to ask: is it acceptable to own stuffed animals when you're 21?

After all, it seems somewhat weird that I'm old enough to go to bars but will still end up coming back to a room with stuffed animals at the end of the day.

And if I haven't grown out of stuffed animals at this point, will I ever?

I'm not sure if this is a position others find themselves in at 21. While I like to think having a few stuffed animals isn't weird, I can't help but wonder if it actually is.

My mom keeps saying I'll grow out of it one day, but I think she might be wrong about that one. It's nice to be able to hold on to the little bit of childhood naivety that I have left. I guess I'll just keep loving my stuffed animals until someone tells me to get rid of them (which I probably won't do anyway).

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to remember why it's so amazing?

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.

9 Things Tall People Are Tired Of Hearing

Yep. The weather is fine up here... I've totally never heard that before.


Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.
