9 Things That Make You Realise You're Turning Hella Old!

9 Things That Make You Realise You're Turning Hella Old!

Your twenties are the weird transitional years where you go from ‘Woohoo, look, I am adulting!’ to ‘Urgh, no, I can’t do another day!’ But then, you also often challenge each other to ‘shots, shots, shots.’ All in all, it can be a confusing state to be in. So if you’re wondering you’ve crossed the young threshold, let me help you folks out. I am sharing with you a couple of things that made me realise that I am turning hella old in my twenties!

1. The first thing I think of when someone says weekday parties is NOPE!

I mean, really, the only reason I will actually go is because they’ve got wine...and some fried goodness. If that's not turning old then I don't know what is!

2. My childhood TV channels are shutting down!

I will not get over Channel V shutting shop in my twenties. Not in this lifetime, at least.

3. My Facebook feed has wedding pictures (and not even just during the season).

I am sorry, but whatever happened to drunk night pictures? Where did these family portraits come from? Ugh, adulting, you're making life worse!

4. Instead of thinking of what to wear, I actively think of excuses not to go.

Um, my pet Iguana just ate my sock?

5. I have LIC premiums to pay and taxes to file!

Adulting is when you actually start planning for your own death.

6. I will choose Jimmy Choo over Sarojini Nagar boots because I am thinking long-term!

That’s right, I am thinking long-term about my boots.

7. ‘I’m so sleepy!’ is my go-to response to everything.

I could sleep 10 hours and still be sleepy. I could sleep the entire weekend and still be sleepy. Go figure!

8. Spontaneity annoys me.

Who do you think you are? Tom Cruise? Just make regular plans like regular people! Calling me a few hours in advance and expecting me to say yes is not even cool anymore. And for this, I actually thank adulting!

9. I am genuinely enjoying writing this article!

I mean it feels like everything in my life was leading up to this moment! I would like to thank my parents and friends for their unconditional love and support…

Ah, well. Don’t worry you might be turning old but as they say, age is just a number (and mine will remain somewhere in the 20s all my life, I’ve decided). *wink wink*

Happy adulting, y’all!
