8 Weird Things I Enjoy Now That I’m An Adult

I have fully accepted the fact that I am an adult. I’m 23, feel like I’m still an insecure 16 year old, but somehow work a 9-5 job, pay bills, and have to figure out how taxes work like yesterday. Here are 8 weird things I enjoy now that I have accepted adulthood:

  1. Grocery shopping
    I like checking all of the nutrition facts and shopping local, like I’ve gotten weirdly passionate about it.
  2. Coupons
    I save $6 on a $30 purchase at CVS and it was the highlight of my day.
  3. Having a day to get my errands done
    I spent my Sunday cleaning, running errands, and doing laundry instead of being hungover and miserable…
  4. Working
    I often have flashbacks to when I worked part time at a movie theater in high school and how horrid it was.
  5. Not going out
    I really enjoy not drinking every weekend, like a lot. Like, how did I ever do that in college?
  6. Cooking dinner
    I get so excited when I actually make something healthy instead of scarfing down a Taco Bell burrito in my car (I still do this sometimes though).
  7. Paying off my credit card
    I should be sad to see all that money go, but I’m actually just happy I make money now.
  8. Being boring
    Call me lame, boring, a wet towelΒ – WHATEVER! I just want to lay in my pj’s after work and eat ice cream. I don’t care!

  1. I agree with all of these except the credit card one; I like to make money and keep money. Spending it is a pain. Maybe it won’t be so bad once my student loans are paid off and I have more money to throw else where. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

  2. :))) Definitely! I thought I’m the only one! I am not as eager as I used to be about going out…can’t I just lay in bed. Wine is cheaper at home…and more…and cozy πŸ˜€

  3. OMG YES SAME. I spent two weekends out: one back home and one in Seattle, and it made me SO exhausted and frustrated throughout the week because then I had to figure out how to get chores done with work. Then this weekend I had all to myself I spent it cleaning and going grocery shopping and watching Netflix and it was amazing.

  4. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I can totally relate. And yes I enjoy being an adult. Yes there’s alot of responsibility but it’s worth having your own time and all that. And I would choose being boring over the alternativeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜.
