7 Warning Signs That You’re Becoming A Grown-Up

You can’t stop the march of time, or the accumulation of birthdays; but you can join me in the fight against growing up. I used to think that deep down inside I was 12, until a friend told me I reminded him of his 8-year-old. I took that as a compliment.

An article that appeared onĀ Buzzfeed recently listed these undeniable signs that you are becoming a grown-up. If you’re with me in the fight to resist, pay careful attention to these indicators:

  1. You find yourself in constant conversations about buying homes, square footage, interest rates, and whether or not it’s a good time to buy.
  2. You find yourself getting jealous of your friends’ vacuum cleaners, knives, and coffee tables.
  3. You stop sharing even remotely embarrassing things on Facebook.
  4. You understand you can’t show up to a party empty-handed.
  5. You make an effort to keep your place clean, even if you have a cleaning lady.
  6. You can’t remember the last time you even considered asking your parents for money.
  7. You cook something to bring to dinner parties, instead of just grabbing something from the grocery store on the way.

Whew. According to this list I think I’m still safe for a while longer.
