|"Forever young, I wanna be forever young..."|
Yes, some parts about being a grown up is quite grand; like being able to eat that ice cream at 10pm if you so wish, staying up late if you feel like it, making your own money and spending it on whatever your heart desires, and being able to travel the world. But, you know, sometimes I just don't feel like being an adult and acting my age. Hence, the top 10 things I hate about being a grown up:
1. Making my own appointments
Even though I'm 26, I still don't like making my own appointments, and I also hate that I am now required to go to said appointments by myself.
2. Not being able to order from the kids' menu
I'm sorry, but am I the only one who would rather be eating the chicken nuggets and fries, arranged in a cute smiley face, than a "grown up" meal?
3. Planning for the future
Ugh! Retirement. Investments. Savings. Insurance. Why do these words keep coming up in my daily life, and why do I have to know what they mean?
4. Taking care of myself
No one reminds me to take my vitamins and eat enough fruits and vegetables. I have to think for myself and make sure I don't have some kind of deficiency.
5. Taking responsibility for my actions
No more blaming anything on being "young and dumb".
6. Paying bills
Gone are the days when my name only appeared on envelopes containing a sweet letter and some cash from my grandmother.
7. Cooking for myself
The time I spend every day feeding and keeping myself alive really takes away from my doing-nothing time.
8. Doing taxes
I've never liked math, and no, I don't want to give you my hard earned money! And why should I!?
9. Doing my own laundry
And it's just never as clean and perfectly folded as my mom used to do it.
10. Getting older
Is that a wrinkle? Where did my metabolism go? Do I need glasses? That can't be a gray hair!
What do you hate, and love, about being a grown up?
