Every thought you’ll have that proves you’re turning into your mom
You inspect fruit before purchasing it
I used to define being an adult differently. I always thought you just knew you were there when none of your interests made you happy anymore and you stuck to a routine because it's the only thing you knew how to do. Now that I'm here, I know it's so much more than that.
Here's every thought you’ll have that proves you’re turning into your mom:
You look forward to grocery shopping – A full fridge? Name a better duo, I dare you.
You appreciate having just one, single drink – Hangovers aren't as fun anymore.
You save the 'nice, sturdy' bags from the store – "Look at how many cans it can hold!"
You start saying things like 'I don't know about thaaaaaaat' – Even though you used to roll your eyes at her rampant skepticism towards anything and everything.
You enjoy the taste of bitter things – Coffee, olives, alcohol, disappointment.
You no longer know a single musical guest on SNL – What is a Musical.ly?
You get psyched about going to Crate and Barrel – Anything home decor related excites you in a way it never has before.
Buying shelving units is the best part of your week – Just organizing things in general makes you feel really warm inside.
You bully yourself into getting your flu shot – After a long call with her, TBF.
You realize people are going for handshakes not high fives – Sometimes you mix it up on them though.
You listen to podcasts for fun – Never thought you'd see the day.
You know the channel number for CNN – But not Disney Channel.
You suddenly like North Face – Anything that'll keep you warm really. You're tired of being so cold all the time.
You know when you need a new toothbrush – Without anybody else telling you.
You shop for practicality when it comes to shoes – The old you wouldn't have been caught DEAD in Teva boots.
For some reason you also like mayo now?? – You knew your adult palette would show its face eventually.
You log into LinkedIn before logging into anything else – Twitter is always second though.
You finish entire tubes of chapstick – You're not made of money, OK?
You inspect fruit before purchasing it – Who are you? Nancy Drew?
You book your haircuts in advance — You know, instead of just walking in and hoping they have a space for you.
You understand not purchasing a pet on a whim – After years of watching my mom walk that dog I made her get, all I can say is I'll literally never do that.
Same goes for tattoos – But you still think they're cool AF on the DL.
You also know Gnocchi with meatballs isn't a meal to brag about – It's still pretty lit though.
You know people don't just 'get rich' – All of the whispered fights at the dinner table suddenly make so much sense.
You realize you have to unlearn a bunch of shit other adults taught you – They didn't have any idea what they were talking about either.
You can fall asleep literally anywhere – Car? Dinner table? You name it.
You now understand that bitchy girl in middle school had shit going on at home – Kids aren't just born evil.
You panic when you sleep in late – Used to love sleeping until 4 in the afternoon, eating and then going back to sleep again.
You take a cute selfie and wish you had MORE clothes on – There are too many youngins following you.
You get excited about the thread count in your sheets – You didn't even used to use bed sheets.
Shower beers have become shower coffees – OK, sometimes still beer.
You can no longer run on 4-6 hours of sleep – Not that you want to.
You set alarms on your days off – Even though your body would wake you up anyway.
You fill online shopping carts and then CLOSE the browser – Like you know what you need versus what you want and it's insane.
You understand Microsoft Word isn’t free – And you'll be the one paying for it soon.
Too bad you still get ID'd though.
BEHOLD: Pumpkin Spice Booze, because Pumpkin Spice Lattes are over and they haven’t invented Pumpkin Spice Cocaine yet
Catch me snorting nutmeg

There is nothing wrong with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Like astrology, Lush bath bombs, and any novel written by a woman, PSLs are in a special club of things that are objectively good and fun but hated on by dudes and girls who haven't yet realized that dudes who hate those things are garbage. But…

So You Think You Were Born In The Wrong Generation
When girls were girls and men were men!
by Amanda Ross
Times are tough, I get it. We have to swipe through Tinder for dates, pay $4 for gas, and don't yet have the ability to keep YouTube music playing which we scroll through Twitter. These crippling hardships have lead some people in our age bracket to develop a subset of Pick Me Syndrome, in which…
