6 Times You Realized You’re Actually an Adult

Turning 18 always seemed glamorous. That was until I realized that I’d officially be an adult. Now, at 19, I’ve realized that I’m not ready to have to adult, but it’s too late now. I may not think that I’m old enough, or wise enough, to be an adult, but I have caught myself doing adult things. Whether I think I’m ready or not, my time to be an adult is here. I’m sure whether you, like me, are not ready to adult, you’ve done the following things, and you’ve realized you’re turning into an adult.

Doing Laundry

Doing your own laundry for the first time. For me, it was terrifying. If you make a mistake, all of your clothes are at risk.

Favorite Social Media is Facebook

“Facebook is for old people.” If that statement is true, count me as an old person then. Because of college, Facebook has become my favorite social media platform because it allows me to stay in contact with everyone in my life.

6 Signs You Are Turning Into an Ex-Party Girl

There comes a time in every girls life where they just don’t feel it anymore. The feeling that I am talking about is the party girl feeling. The same old house parties start to get dull and staying out until 3 a.m riding around your college town takes more out of you than before. Then you start seeing the same faces at the same events and that is when you know you’ve made it to the regular crew. Here are six signs you are turning into an ex-party girl:

6. Dress it down

When you are first introduced to the college party scene, you are ready to leave your mark — so you had a dress for every occasion with the matching heels to go with it. On those nights out you were feeling yourself and your mark was left for quite a few people to appreciate. Now the tables have turned. You know before you go out who will be at what event that is happening that night. Now instead of pulling out your special dress, you turn to your most comfortable pair of jeans or yoga pants that you pair with your favorite comfort colors t-shirt. Yet you will find yourself staring at your lonely dresses and your neglected heels wishing you could put them on. It’s a sad day for your closet.

5. No Friends Zone

When you went out, you knew any and every person that was at that party, and you didn’t have to worry about who you were going to arrive with because you were always the one that people called when they wanted to head someplace. You always had that good friend that you would crash with after a memorable night of partying and then wake up and get breakfast with. Now that you’re hopping off the party bus, you start to ask yourself if you even have real friends. You scroll through your phone’s contact list and every person that you would call would rather be partying or drinking — they would never be up for Netflix, a bottle of wine, and a deep dish pizza. Crazy right? To add to that feeling of no friends, you find yourself hanging out with the same two people all the time.

4. Fear of Missing Out

When you’re a fresh party girl you feel like if you don’t go to every single party that is thrown then you will automatically miss out on something. Being an Ex-Party girl you’re not worried about missing out on something whatsoever. You’re at that stage of if it happens, then it happens or if I’m suppose to be there, then I’ll find a way to be there eventually. What we are concerned about missing now is time with bae and growing that relationship or whatever else has happened to catch your attention.

Your First Real Job Interview Explained By Jess From New Girl

There comes a time in all of our lives where it is time to become an adult.  However, some of us are more prepared to enter that world than others.  But for most of us, we graduate college and don’t really know what to do from there.  We try to enter the real world as best as we can, but we are highly unprepared for that next step.  As we try to move forward in our lives and careers, the first step is to apply for real world jobs.  Now this isn’t the job you return to seasonal like in high school; I am talking about a full time, business attire, adult job.  If you are lucky enough to get passed the application process, a new beast emerges for you.  The interview.  This is not something that college taught us, but it is the learning process that you need to excel.  One of the few people that may understand this first struggle is Jessica Daye.  She is quirky, awkward, and doesn’t quite know what is going on but that is what makes her exactly like us for our first interviews into the real world.
16. When you first get a call for an interview and they ask you if you are interested.  Of course you are interested because you have been out of school for who knows how long and are beginning to have a life crisis so you start to beg.

15. When your friends ask you why you want this job: Basically because nothing is going right in your life, and you are hoping this job will magically turn you into an adult, no matter how boring and professional it is.

14. When your friends are helping you prepare for the interview and they basically tell you how you should not be yourself at all.  You may be wonderful and weird but that’s not what they want on your resume.

13. When you are getting ready for the interview but not ready to be an adult so you just sit there. For a long period of time contemplating life.  Trying to figure out how to stop being an adult before you even started.

12. When you are worried you show up and either feel under dressed or over dressed for that job, but there is nothing you can do about it.  So you just have to be confident and act like you know exactly what you are doing.

11. When you are trying to prove that you are an adult but you make it clear to everyone that you just aren’t.  But that’s okay, you must keep faking it until it actually becomes part of your reality.

10. When they ask why you left your old job and if they can call for a reference.  Whether you left on a good or bad note, you do not want your potential new boss to speak with your manager from Abercrombie about your potential.

9. When they ask you how well you work with other people but your leadership style isn’t the most traditional, so you try to explain it anyway.  (Sometimes what works in running your sorority chapter doesn’t work in the real world apparently)
