When you excitedly tell your millennial coworkers that you got Guns N’Roses tickets and their response is, “Is that a band?” Sigh.

When you get excited to pay your bills and manage your budget each week. When putting money into your savings account brings you way more joy than x,y,z frivolous passing fancy you saw at a store. When you try to enlist your friends in “financial freedom and empowerment” adventures and they realize you mean budgeting and bill paying. 😕

You start saying that Marvel Avengers movies are your guilty pleasure, whereas when you were younger, it would just have been something you liked.

First post!

 

You are out for your cousins 21st birthday and a round of patron tequila comes out and us “older cousins” are like “don’t worry I have Advil” and another chimes in with “I’ve got the Zantac” 

Younger me would just be looking for some limes!!

When your choice of neighborhoods based on school/daycares, grocery stores, parks/playgrounds… not on how cool it is. 

(FI and I are planning to start a family next year and are window shopping for a new neigborhood)

When you tell the little punk rock girls at work you’ve had your nose pierced since 1974.

Omg, this just happened.  

When you see a commercial for a cooling knee pillow to put between your legs so your hips and back don’t hurt when you sleep on your side, and you think that would be nice to have.
