Oh, Tuesday. I’m already aching for the weekend. A couple more weeks and I get a 4 day weekend to celebrate my birthday…I can’t wait!
So after basking in the brilliance and freedom of adulthood in my 7 Things I Love About Getting Older post, I thought it was about time I shared the 7 reasons I hate getting older, too! Wise words:
Why getting older is a bad thing…
2. You’re solely responsible for paying the bills on time. You mess up, and it’s on you. You forget a bill is due, it’s on you. Responsibility! Okay, I threw this in because people always moan about bills, but I enjoy managing money. Lists, lists and more lists!
4. If you live alone, there’s no mum or dad to shout if you hear a scary noise in the middle of the night. Similarly, you have to get rid of creepy bugs that make their way into your home! You can’t call for dad to scoop that giant spider out the window. Your move…
6. You have to get a job or a career. You’re likely looking at a 9-5 thingamajig, and I can now say from experience oh dear god, it’s so exhausting. The tiny specks of hope called weekends just aren’t long enough!
7. If you are single, you’re bombarded with questions about boyfriends or marriage! If you’re not, everyone’s curious why there aren’t babies on the horizon! I’m not a baby making machine, I’m getting my degree! It’s 2015, people!
Oh, the list could go on! But equally, there are many reasons to be happy about ageing! 7 Reasons I Love Getting Older is much more of a happy read, pinky promise!
