1) When I realized I couldn’t have more than 3 vodka tonics without feeling like hell the next day.

2) When I started going to bed at 10pm so I could get up and feel well rested for work.  I never used to care about being well rested.

What are you talking about? I refuse to ever feel grown up! Because then comes the feeling on being old… and I don’t want that.

lol oh that realization keeps tricking in…

– when i signed the papers on our house— and with a BOY (fi, lol)

– when i bought a car all by myself (actually without telling fi, oops)

– when i did a literal happy-dance after i found out how awesome my insurance is going to be when i get married.

When I realized that adults:

-sleep on real mattresses that don’t give them back problems

-don’t hit up their friends to help them move

When 10:30 suddenly sounded so late to stay up

when my hairstylist suggested a little “color” to cover the grays. . . I’m only 23, FML

– when I wanted to study in college instead of party

– when I worked two jobs after moving to DC in order to save up more for a condo – I had no life for a while and was fine with it

– when I comparison shop

– Going to be early and no longer being able to sleep in

– when I no longer take political debates/elections personally.  My Fiance takes the outcome of elections and all political debate personally, and I can shrug it off. 

What I don’t have that is also a grown up sign:

– Not having a home full of Ikea furniture

When I had to pay my first mortgage payment.  Though I’ve still never bought my own car (my parents have given me their car on a very extended loan) so that’ll be another “whoa” moment.

I have moments when it hits me that I am grown up, but then I remind myself that I thought I was grown up 10 years ago too!

THe morning where i was brushing my teeth, decided my bathroom was too filthy and I couldn’t live like this any more, and was weilding the toilet brush while attempting to wipe down the sink, still holding my tooth brush in my mouth. And I paused, having the epiphany that my mother would totally be laughing if she saw me now, considering the whining complaints i used to make about how no one cared what your toilet looked like anyways.
