Do we ever grow up? Really?
I’m 26. Twenty six! And yet I don’t feel grown up. I feel like I did at 20/21 at uni but just with more life experience.
More knowledge of how to deal with problems, tricky situations and difficult people. More experience in my career, living on my own and being independent, and how to budget. More confidence in travelling and navigating cities, networking and in my abilities.
But I don’t feel older.
Mariah who blogs over at It’s Mariah Jean made me start thinking about all the things I still do, even as an adult. Those little things you think grown ups wouldn’t do, like still counting on your fingers. It made me giggle thinking about them so I had to share with you.
And hey…doing all these things still is totally fine. I don’t think we ever really grow up inside. Age is just a number. We just carry on adding to that wisdom and those fab memories.
Ask my mum what to put on a bite/sting and to check if it looks normal
Can’t decide which cereal to choose in the supermarket…hmmmm Frosties, Rice Krispies or Readybrek
Crave smiley faces, dippers and spaghetti hoops
Catch a cartoon on weekend mornings every now and then… I feel like I’m indulging my inner child with 15 mins of Fairly Odd Parents
Want to be at home for mum to look after me when I’m ill
Don’t know how to do my makeup properly…i just guess what I need
Struggle to open medicine bottles, especially when I’m ill. Come on…The screw cap is hard when you’re feeling so weak!
Drink Ribena and Capri Sun- those tropical ones when out shopping for the day are the one!
Get excited about pick’n’mix…especially at the cinema
Pull faces at Alex when he says something I don’t agree with or he takes the mick out me
Talk about “when I’m grown up”…babies, engagement, where my career is going will all be then
Cry when I return to London. I’m always really homesick when I come back. Just because I’ve been living in the big city for four years, it doesn’t make it any easier.
Wrestle Alex when he’s said something to make fun of me…like when we used to have tickle fights as kids
Get really competitive on Mario Kart Wii. Sometimes I’m a sore loser too
Enjoy a Petit Filous every so often. Ok I do have to eat like two in one go as they’re so small but they’re super yum
Can you relate to some of the above? What do you still do?
