10 Things We Hated In Childhood But Can't Get Enough Of As Adults

I would kill for a good bath now.

Things change as we grow up, and I don't mean puberty. There were sooo many things we hated as children, the world seemed out to get us, and though it still seems that way, we can process those thoughts a little more rationally.

Vegetables aren't as evil as the seemed. And thats why the first item on this list of things we enjoy not is...

1. Vegetables!

Especially salad! And some roasted asparagus or brussel sprouts, my mouth is watering.

2. Naps.

What we would give for a nice nap now a day...

3. Romance.

No more cooties!

4. Siblings.

They're a little more tolerable now :)

5. Parents.

Somewhere along the way they became less embarrassing or you realized how much like them you are... even though you may still not admit it.

6. New food.

Our menu has expanded beyond chicken nuggets... to spicy chicken nuggets!

7. Alone time.

Being alone sucked in childhood! It usually meant we were bored or had been banished to our room. But now! Alone time is precious.

8. Personal hygiene.

Now showers are the best and combing/brushing hair is soooo soothing.

9. Baths.

Our parents had to drag us kicking and screaming to wash off the mud we'd worked so hard to dirty us with. Now though, a nice bath (especially a bubble bath) is the perfect ending to a long day.

10. Cleaning.

Keeping things organized and neat so you can find it is the best feeling!

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
