11 Undeniable Signs that You’re Now a Full-Pledged Adult

Remember when you’re the youngest in the work place, or better yet, when you were still looking to get hired on your first job? Remember your teen years when you felt invincible and you didn’t have to worry about responsibilities nor taxes?

Those years are long gone, and non-physical signs of aging are starting to show. Congratulations–you’re becoming your parents.

1. “I’m too old for this shit” is becoming your life motto.

Things that could have riled you up before now seem so nonsensical. The same things that set you off years ago now seem so petty. And when the young ones are being all hyped and agitated around you, you end up muttering, “I’m too old for this shit.”

2. “Kids.”

3. You can’t believe you have colleagues who entered college after you graduated.

Your bones might no longer be able to handle all the drinking and dancing.

8. You meet people in their 30’s and you still consider them young.

Gone are the days when your parents, aunts and uncles think you’re too young to be part of the conversation. You’re now part of the family tsismisan.

Breaking news: You now talk like your parents. It may be hard to believe, but your childhood is more than a decade ago.

Definitely Backstreet Boys are way better than One Direction, amirite?

It may be difficult to accept, but welcome to the adult world.
