16 Signs You're Nailing This Adulting Thing

Let's face it, sometimes we all need reminding that we're not totally failing at life. Sometimes it feels like all ya want to do is go back to being the age of 12 when your biggest problem was which pjs to take to the next girlie sleepover. Just think, you'd never even heard of an ISA account back then. Simpler times eh?

There will always be days when all you feel good for is a netflix binge and family size bag of m&ms but mostly babes, you is doing okay. You're being pretty successful at this adulting business and here's why:

1) You dress appropriately for the weather; you take an umbrella when it rains and a coat when it's cold etc. No more wearing a summer dress for a night out in November = no more hypothermia. You totes got this! 

2) You eat avocado and kale and broccoli voluntarily. You are a health goddess darling. 

3) You have a spare phone charger because you’re PREPARED. That's right. 

4) You now get drunk on decent wine, as opposed to tesco value vodka. Get you. 

5) You no longer upload 250 photos to Facebook every time you have a night out... Which used to be three times a week. Ain't nobody got time for that.

6) You bitch about your friend’s political views, rather than their questionable choice of partner or hair colour. You so mature now. 

7) You’ve got spare stamps in the drawer. And they are first class. Who even are you?! 

8) Your work contract is permanent. High five babes. 

9) You no longer have to throw away pants cos you totally misjudged your period. Look at you nailing life girl. 

10) You can go to the cinema or to a restaurant on your own without worrying about being judged. You is a strong, independent woman, or man for that matter. 

11) You probably prefer Costa to a bar and you ain’t even ashamed. Hot choc for life.

12) You can’t even remember the last time your card got declined. And you’re making rent. Woah, who is this sass queen?!

13) You have a Holland and Barrett loyalty card and you ain’t even sorry.  

14) You can spend about four hours drooling over kitchen wear in the fancy cook shop and about ten seconds in River Island. Cos what the eff am I supposed to do with metallic gold leggings? 

15) You’ve eaten in fancier places than Pizza Express and they didn’t chuck you out. You must actually look like a real life adult. Nailing this shit. 

16) You’ve already achieved some of your dreams. Sure, that dream may be the fact that you have a holiday to New York booked but, hey, your bank account is still functioning. Look at you going somewhere in life. 

You have SO GOT THIS.
