7 signs you are not an adult

Being a real adult comes with its own set of dangers and pitfalls and unless you know what you’re doing, the world can be a scary place

Investing in alcohol
  • You Have No Idea How To Deal With Breakages

As soon as something breaks in your house, you have a full on meltdown. Spending money on practical appliances never even crosses your mind and if something stops working, you just find out a way to live without it.

  • You 98% of grocery on snacks

The best thing about living apart from your parents is the power to do your own grocery shopping. While you want to start eating healthily one day, for now, you stock up on snacks and chocolate.

  • You deal with bad new terribly

Pretty much every day in your world is a good day, so when things start to go wrong, you don’t know how to rationally deal with them. Your first instinct is to hide under your duvet and hope that everything sorts itself out by the time you resurface.

  • Making a budget freak you out

On the rare occasion that you try and budget for the week, you have a complete breakdown. Figuring out how little money you can actually afford to spend is so depressing that you go back to spending blindly, anyway.

  • You communicate via emoji

If you look at your most recent text messages, it’s pretty likely that an entire conversation has been conducted in emojis. Written language is too time consuming for you and with your closest friends, you can say everything with a simple sign.

  • Snapchat is your life

Most of your major relationships were formed and are sustained through Snapchat. You update your feed at every significant point in the day and your Snapchat followers are the closest people in your life.

  • You invest your money in alcohol

With the amount that you spend on alcohol and nights out, you should be a major shareholder in every alcohol company around the world. You can’t imagine a time when you wouldn’t enjoy going out and for now, it feels like a good investment.
