24 Reasons Why Being An Adult Is Great


Because it's much better than teenhood

I'm nearly 20 (omg) and I'm so happy in myself, I have a job and I love my life. And after seeing Kyla's post on why she loves being an adult, I thought I would jump on her bandwagon and do my own post. Do give her blog some love as I've been reading her blog since forever - and it's amazing! Ok, back to the post, here are all the reasons...

001: I can go out wherever I want in London and meet up with friends - even in the evening omg

002: Treating myself can be more than once a month because I earn my own money yaay

003: YESS I earn my own money and I have a job that I love

004: I feel like my tastes as a newly blossomed adult are pretty rad, especially with interiors

005: I can have coffee whenever and wherever I want (ie. at home and at Starbucks ON THE SAME DAY)

006: I feel so happy within myself, I'm on my way to accepting myself and so glad that the school days are over...

007: I've had the opportunity to meet so many lovely people as an adult so far and I'm so grateful

008: I can on impulse gorge on pasta and/or pizza and my parents can't complain


010: Eating chocolate every night is a blessing

011: Here's to being able to buy my own concert tickets with my own earned money woo hoo

012: Also, here's to the fact that I'm going on my own with friends to see The 1975 at the O2 yaaay

013: I can choose my own bedtime (ie. 10pm - wow I'm sooo wild!)

014: You can continously learn new things in the real world and not just in school

015: Now that I'm older I find it easier to appreciate the little things like having dinner with the family

016: I get to choose what I wear and how I present myself. Lazy Oaf, Primark and Zara all the way!

017: I'm not restricted in my creativity and I have the means to express that in anyway I can

018: Doing *some* house chores are actually pretty fun! (changing my bed and hoovering - but don't let my mum see this...)

019: You have no one constantly judging you within a confined space day in day out, and fully expressing yourself as a young adult cannot be more important

020: I have the chance to actually have better music taste than my 12 year old self. Yes to Marina, Mars, The 1975 and Twenty One Pilots!

021: No more benchball or rounders in PE - you don't know how happy this makes me haha

022: I can actually get good at applying makeup and not look like a panda - a nod again to having money to buy good products

023: Dyeing my hair as an adult is the best thing ever and I have the choice to choose whatever colour I want - as long as my mum approves hehe

024: Bordering 20 is where the real fun begins, so here's to the fun times as a young adult woo hoo

  1. What a positive and happy post! Absolutely love it! Although we often complain about adulting wrong or having to adult at all it's a pretty great thing. Totally with you about drinking all the coffee and also a HUGE lover of Lazy Oaf! They are one of my favorite brands! Earning your own hard-earned money is also one of the best feelings in the world! :D
