I'm not an adult because...
I don't own throw pillows - Honestly I don't see a purpose for these. Like... I'm gonna put them on my bed or couch and then when I want to lay or sit... they go right on the floor! These are pillows with literally NO purpose except to look nice. I'm not ready for that kind of responsibility.
I don't go to happy hour after work - I'm a nanny, so often times "happy hour" is long over by the time I get off work. I feel like having a 9-to-5 is a crucial part of general adulthood (though tons of real adults rock other working hours, obviously) but since I don't have that Monday-Friday "daily grind" I don't get to be "adult enough" to hang out at Chili's at 5pm in my work clothes. Also... my work clothes are yoga pants.
My towels don't match - I have tons of bath towels in multiple different colors. Some of them are actually beach towels that I use as regular towels. I have no use for hand towels, as I can grab one of my randomly strewn-about towels or even dry my wet hands on the yoga pants I wear to work.
Neither do my dishes - I don't have a matching set of bone china from France, partly because I have not made a wedding registry, and mostly because I don't think I'll ever want bone china from France. I wouldn't mind having a matching set of tableware, but if and when I do, they'll likely come from Target.
My "life savings" is just the money left over from my paycheck each week, if there is any. That European vacation ain't gonna happen any time soon, even though I wish it would.
I've never rented a car or flown on a plane by myself. That will change very soon, but as of this exact moment, these are two adult things I have avoided at all costs.
I don't really have a 5 year plan... except I know I want to get a "big girl job" soon after graduation. After that, there is no real plan. I expect life will continue to happen to me, and I'll go from there.
I've never hosted a dinner party - Dinner parties just sound really expensive and so much work. Entertain yourselves people! You can come over, I have Netflix and wine, and wine is practically a fruit plate, right? By that logic, pizza is a salad. We're eating healthy!
I don't find errands "relaxing." Occasionally I hear people (especially moms) saying that they had a nice peaceful day going to the grocery store, dropping things off at the post office, and hanging out at the DMV. How is this a thing? I'm definitely not ready to have kids if escaping to the DMV sounds like a treat. No way.
I like too many "kid" things - Yes, I know you can like kid things as an adult, but how many adults regularly hang out in onesie pajamas eating Lucky Charms and watching The Little Mermaid? Not many, I would guess. If you are that kind of adult, hit me up. I want to be your friend. I have coloring books.
Are you a real adult?
If not, do you relate to any of these things?
