29 Things I Think Adults Do

I missed the point when I turned into an adult. Actually, there are still times when I have to ask other people “Hey, adults do this, right?” Feeling woe-begone and frustrated the other day about my lack of groceries and total lack of motivation to go buy some, I started the reverse to-do list:

ALL THE THINGS I DID NOT DO TODAY

  1. Workout
  2. Shower. At least I didn’t workout
  3. Read the news.
  4. Pay credit card.
  5. Buy groceries

This small list quickly morphed into IF I WERE A REAL ADULT, WHAT WOULD I BE DOING, but that title was too massive, so it turned into

THINGS ADULTS DO

[DISCLAIMER: I don’t consider myself a real adult, so let me know if things need to be added/taken off.]

  1. Laundry. 
  2. Fold and put away laundry. Not the same as the process of making clothes clean.
  3. Clean. 
  4. Eat healthy food. Good breakfast, Snickers for lunch. Can’t win all the time.
  5. Go to bed at a reasonable hour. Ha. Hahaha. 
  6. Have productive Saturdays. This last Saturday I went to Bikram and then watched 5 episodes of SVU. I’m judging myself. 
  7. Call their relations on their birthdays. May have added this one because I remembered to call my dad for his birthday, and I need as many points as I can get here.
  8. Do taxes on time.
  9. Meet deadlines with more than 27 seconds to spare. 
  10. Go grocery shopping.
  11. Put away groceries. Have you discovered that putting things away is not my strong suit? “Freeze ground beef” is an item on my to-do list. 
  12. Buy fruits and vegetables.
  13. Take vitamins.
  14. Have a meal plan. That’s a big nope.
  15. Have a budget.
  16. Have an organized closet. This is really just a New Year’s resolution to be honest.
  17. Do not drop expensive things. My iPhone. 5x a week. No wonder it only works half the time.
  18. Be prepared. Specifically in the tampon department. Gets me everytime. 
  19. Spell out every word in your text messages. If you are over the age of 15 and you say “C U soon” I will not see you soon.
  20. Have a stance on something. Health insurance, birth control, the Sudan, baby elephants. Something.
  21. Floss.
  22. Exercise.
  23. Do the dishes. Before the sink becomes apocalyptic. 
  24. Cook.
  25. Crock pot.
  26. Read. I’m aiming for the news and hitting fiction. Baby steps. 
  27. Make the bed.
  28. Have a morning routine. My current routine: Hit snooze 3 times. Turn off alarm. Fall back asleep. Awaken naturally in a full state of panic 15 minutes later. Do not shower. Do not pass go. Do not eat breakfast. Do not collect two hundred dollars. Instead, stand in front of closet and debate on clothing choices for the day. Be unable to find keys. Be exactly one minute late to work. 
  29. Think about marriage. I’M NOT EVEN A PERSON YET STOPPIT

Super Useful Fantastic Shopping Sites

To be 10000% honest, I should be packing out my closet for my move to ChiCity, but I felt that this blog post, if not more important, was definitely less stressful.

Ok. So, that being over with, I am about to give you The List. This is my daily “hey, let’s window shop online and try not to buy anything because there are really good prices” list of websites that I check.

1. Tobi
Awesome website that features 30% off their new arrivals. And let me tell you. YES. They have fantastic dresses and tops, and they regularly get colored skinnies in. Check this out, or just go bury your head in the sand.
If you haven’t heard of iDeeli, go there now. It features designer clothes and other items (I mean, you know, top of the line Hello Kitty mixers and the like) at major discounts. All you have to do is go to the site and click the “Sign Up With Facebook” button. Don’t pass this up.
Yeah, don’t know how you say it, if it’s Urban-og or Urban-oh-gee, but they have way low prices, especially on shoes, my favorite item. Just a word of warning: when buying cheaper shoes, try to stay away from the shoes that have the add-ons–studs, sparkles, and the like. They are more likely to fall off and kind of ruin the look of the shoe. But for basic shoes, go to town!
You might go to this site and think I’m crazy. I mean, I am, but not because I shop here. They have great prices on club dresses. Need something to go to a concert in and not worry about it getting ruined? Go here. Don’t ever be afraid to check club wear/lingerie sites for awesome dresses and shoes. Sometimes they have the best deals and the best shoes.
Kk chicas, these are the websites. Use them wisely and with great abandon.
I have to go finish packing. GAHHHHHH.
