Uh oh – I think I might be an adult.


A few months ago I had my twenty-sixth birthday. TWENTY-SIX. Now I know in the grand scheme of things this is still pretty young but I have to admit, it did hurt a little when I had to update my WordPress bio. Often I feel like I stuck at twenty-two, like I am still just a university student preparing to navigate the “real world” for the first time. And even though I don’t feel old, I am beginning to notice a few things in my life that seem to point to the fact that I am officially an adult. Here are a few of those things:

  • I now have to tick the middle age box on a form or survey (it’s SO sad)
  • I was really excited to get a free sample of Vichy Liftactiv face cream
  • The highlight of my week was getting 20 bonus Air Miles
  • I make my bed regularly (well, semi-regularly… I am on a bit of a hiatus right now.)
  • I dressed up as a red Crayon for Halloween, and not a slutty red Crayon, just a plain old adorable red Crayon
  • My friends are having “on purpose” babies
  • My Facebook news feed is littered with pictures of said “on purpose” babies
  • I was ecstatic to receive my Blue Cross card in the mail
  • My mom collects books to read to her grandkids one day (I am neither pregnant, nor trying to be)
  • I actually have to pay for banking (I miss my Leo young saver’s account)
  • My boyfriend jokes that it might be time to trade me in for a younger model (at least I hope he’s joking…)
  • I struggle to pull a double header (drinking hard two nights in a row)
  • I make a mean chocolate chip banana bread
  • I wish I owned every single product Spanx makes (this might have something to do with the aforementioned banana bread…)
  • I own a tankini (I really need to stop making banana bread)
  • I no longer eat cereal for dinner
  • My Visa limit is more than $500
  • Eating pancakes for a week to save money for drinking seems like a bad idea
  • I don’t get ID-ed when I order wine at dinner anymore (thanks A LOT Mike for pointing that one out…)
  • I’m starting to think open bar events are both a blessing and a curse
  • I’m sitting at home on a Thursday making a list of all of the reasons I think I might be an adult instead of drinking 25 cent high balls at Palamino’s

So there you have it, I think I just might be an adult! What are some things you’ve noticed that have made you stop and think, “holy shit… I might just be an adult”?

  1. The fact that you are now 26 years old makes me realize I “might” be an adult.
    Here are some favourite sayings which may comfort you….
    – How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
    – You are only young once but you can stay immature forever!
    – You can never be lost if you don’t care where you are going….
    – Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be!
