Growing up is cool and all, but some days I don’t feel like “adulting.” It’s a word. If we’re being honest, lately, most days I don’t feel like adulting. I know very well that I’m not fully on my own yet and that my responsibilities don’t scream at me when they want food (i.e. kids), but you can’t deny the “valuable” life lessons you learn when you go to college/live on your own. Sometimes those valuable life lessons are simply learning to keep your head above water on a Monday of all Mondays. That would be yesterday, for me.
For instance, did you know how much money paper towels cost? I mean, the good kind (Bounty), of course. And toilet paper…did you know someone has to buy that for you? It’s always fun to run out and use tissue paper. Luckily I had some of that.
Other valuable lessons from yesterday…
-The medicine cabinet isn’t always stocked with Tylenol, Advil, Aleeve, Tums, Pepcid, Band-Aids, and your mom’s hugs. I had none of those yesterday.
-No matter what time of day, the post office is so busy. WHY?
-Don’t procrastinate getting gas. <10 miles is not good for stress.
-Apparently not everyone wants to watch Sports Center at the gym. I guess I’m in the minority there.
-Eating too much of any one food (even your favorite food) sometimes causes an unhappy stomach.
-The crockpot is a saving grace on days like this. Will post an update soon but, spoiler alert, I love it.
-Bugs don’t kill themselves.
-Whole Foods cures all. Particularly, their Kalicious smoothie (see above).
-Even better, a solid afternoon nap and delicious dinner can make you forget your rough Monday ever existed.
