10 Reasons Why Adulthood Isn't For Me

Recently, I've been feeling like my imminent 20s are fast approaching, especially since I'm in to my last 6 months of being a teenager. Although I'm looking forward to being 20, I do not feel ready in the slightest. In my past year and a half of official 'adulthood', I've had more mishaps than I'd care to admit. Although some were cute and klutzy in a 'look at this mini-adult trying so hard at life yet failing' kind of way, I feel like the world becomes more unforgiving when the clock strikes midnight on your 20th birthday. With this in mind, I've pretty much decided that adulthood isn't really for me so I thought I'd comprise a little list as to why.

  




1. Like when I was a toddler, I still require daily naps to function and without them the risk of a tantrum turns from 'quite possible' to 'severe: take cover'. Crying in the staff toilets because you haven't had a nap that day is not a very adult thing to do.



2. I view cooking as a very definite waste of time. In the rare occasion that I do make food for myself I feel cheated that it took me a whole 6 times longer to make than it did to eat it. I'm nearly 20 you know, my life is ticking away and there's simply no time to waste slaving over a stove. A packet of crisps and a freddo are a much more time efficient (and potentially delicious) equivalent.



3. 9-5 days enrage me. How dare I have to be apart from my bed for such a long time? I have worn shoes and a bra for a solid 8 hours now, take me home.



4. I'm an adult now, which means I have to converse with other adults. Conversations no longer consist of the grown up coming up with all the conversation starters and questioning you about your life. Now you feel obliged to ask Mary about her kids and when she's finally finished telling you, you'll probably feel the need to make a mental note to never ask again.



5. I still get Tango Iceblasts/Fanta Frozens at the cinema. Even though my slurpy noises and subsequent blue tongue make me look 5 years old I am so not ready to give up their icy blue goodness.



6. I don't know how to do anything. How does one go about getting a mortgage? Exactly where abouts in the printer does this magenta ink cartilage go? How often do I need to bleed my radiators? These are the questions that keep me up at night.



7. I get stuck in my clothes far too often. If I live by myself who's going to help me when I can't get my dress over my head or my zip gets stuck? I'll either have to get really friendly with my neighbours or buy clothes with velcro and poppers only.



8. Now I don't want to give you TMI here but one of the main reasons I'm not prepared to be classed as an adult yet is that I'm still waiting for that pivotal moment in my life where my boobs actually grow. I am so not okay with accepting the fact that this is as good as it's going to get. Can I try puberty again just one more time please? I think I was doing it wrong.



9. I can't park. Ever. Reverse park? Nope. Parallel park? Don't make me laugh. I'll just abandon my car over here and hope that no one's watching.



10. If I ever hear myself being referred to as an adult or a lady it just doesn't feel right. I'm sorry but I think you've got the wrong gal.




Hopefully some of you can relate to these too because if not I really need to take a long, hard look at my life. Are there any reasons why you guys aren't ready for adulthood? Thanks for reading!

  1. Haha this made me laugh! Girl, I totally feel ya. I turned 22 in August, and I seriously having a midlife-midlife crisis. But to be honest, I wouldn't be 18, 19 or even 20 again if I got the chance.
    But yeah... I still don't know how to adult, but I've managed to keep myself alive the past year of living on my own. If I can do THAT, you can turn 20 and own it ;)

  2. I can relate to every single one of these and I'm 24. It's strange though as much as you don't think you'll be prepared, the older you get the more natural 'adult things' become. For example up until like a year ago all I could make was toast and now I can make a three course meal! It all just takes time and it's weird how you become an adult without actually realising you have or are doing it. You're so young though - don't worry it will all come in time! Oh and there is no age on an ice blast at the cinema - I don't care if i'm in my 40's a mixed ice blast will always be my treat haha!

    1. Aww that made me feel better! A three course meal is definitely impressive. Oh yes ice blasts are the best, my future kids will be embarrassed when I buy one for them and one for myself!! x

  3. This was really funny! And it's good to know someone else feels the same way about cooking as I do. Also, I'm 27 and I'm still waiting for my boobs. Not cool. xx
