Guys, sometimes adulting is hard. I mean, I right? In fact, sometimes it's just so rough that I can actually relate to this graph from a well-loved blog post from Hyperbole and a Half: This is Why I'll Never be an Adult.






My friend from college, Travis, introduced me to this gem of a blog {hint: you might have seen it too, as it sparked the wildly popular "ALL THE THINGS" meme!} and sometimes re-reading it gives me both solidarity with other "faux-dults" and a sense of "ok, you've read your cartoon, now let's get some grown up stuff done." It's a balance, people.

Anyways, this week I feel that I was really on the incline part of the "adulting" scale and was feeling like bullet point #2 up on that graph! And it got me thinking about all the stuff that makes me feel like I'm doing adult stuff. {P.S. I blame it on all the paperwork etc. that I'm currently wading through}'s ALL THE THINGS {wink} that make me feel grown up-esque:

1. Requesting my medical records from my doctor


2. HAVING a doctor


3. Knowing how much I have in our HSA account AND getting excited that we can get another pair of glasses


4. Knowing what HSA stands for


5. Looking in the "Books" section for my coloring books rather than the "Toys" section {btw I totally scored by receiving an awesome Harry Potter coloring book from my friend Meghan this Christmas! Thanks, Meghan!!}


6. Owning {and not starving to death} an adorable little kitty


7. Knowing what my thermostat is set to in order to preserve utilities


8. Actually enjoying sparkling water


9. Getting ridiculously excited about things like office supplies and snail mail

10. Staying up as late as I please catching up on all my shows {and then immediately regretting it the next day}

11. Planning actual trips/vacations/fun times and getting to be in charge of all the things I do

12. Going somewhere only because it was a Groupon or I have a gift card

13. Reading...just because

Any other "faux-dults" out there? What are some of your moments of "huh...I guess I am a big kid now"?! Have a great weekend, kids!
