25 SIGNS YOU HAVE GROWN UP

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

2 Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.

3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

4. 6:00 a.m. is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.

6. You watch the Weather Channel.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."

8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.

9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@.. kids next door won't turn down the stereo.

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

16. You take naps.

17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.

18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good shit."

21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."

23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking "Oh shit what the hell happened?"

4. No, I still go to bed at 6 AM. Wake up at 1PM.

5. Oddly enough, yes.

8. Where do you get 14? I don't get 14. I'm lucky if I get three days.

9. At my work, they do.

12. Doesn't matter...drive thru 24 hours.

13. Car's paid, insurance is going down.

14. Our furry garbage disposal, never. Always the good stuff, not any of that "dog food" crap.

20. Only if its Berringer, other than that, no.

23. More like 80% personal, 20% work.

And some of these strangely apply to me. Heh.

1. Considering I don't do any sort of illicet drugs, this is true.

2. I've only done that once in my life, and it was 3 months ago.

3. That's only not true when I throw parties, and usually it's not just beer.

4. I can't conceivably get up at 6 a.m. (usually fall asleep 1 a.m., at the latest) I wake up at 7:30 a.m.

6. I don't have the weather channel, but my roommate for the last journalism convention had the TV set to that all the time. But then again, she constantly has her computer on doppler radar; she's interested in what the cloud coverage looks like 24/7.

7. This is almost true with my life now, but it's get engaged and break up.

8. And boy am I proud of my 3-day school weeks.

9. It's always been jeans and a "nice shirt" within my social circles, but then again "dressed up" also is constituted by fishnet stockings, knee-high Doc Martens, and all black clothing, within some of them.

11. My dad and I share dirty jokes all the time.

12. I used to know off the top of my head, but then I haven't had cause to go in and sit down in the middle of the night. Also at the one nearest me, they don't follow the hours marked on the sign. And yes, I usually take the drive-thru since around here is closes at 2.

13. I don't drive.

14. I don't have a dog and my cat eats Burger King chicken fries.

15. I sleep on the couch all the time just because.

16. Who doesn't?

17. For me it's usually the middle.

18. Oh man do I ever feel old while reading this one.

19. A little from column A, a whole lot more from column B.

20. Depends on if it was that price at the winery. Eliminate the middle man (liquor store) and wine can be all kinds of cheap.

21. I tend to order lunch for breakfast anyway, but yeah the whole Norm's lumberjack breakfast for dinner is still something I'll probably be doing for years.

22. This is slowly becoming true. For years I'd been able to drink everyone under the table, but suddenly certain things I used to drink are unappealing. I've never been drunk, but now it seems like my system can only take so much before it feels sick (and not sick in the "Oh God, I drank too much, I'm gonna hurl," but in the "Ugh... I feel like I haven't eaten anything and just had a whole bottle of something" kinda sick)

24. I don't see a logical point to that. I drink at home occasionally, but not with the intention of going to the bar afterwards. Bar drinks are expensive, though.

25. How true this is. When someone says they're pregnant it scares the shit out of me, makes me think there really are bad condoms out there and that I should worry about what contraception to use.

Leave it to the adults on the board to take the questions seriously to a degree.

I pay bills. I work. I support my mom, instead of her supporting me.

1. You actually have to think before you buy.

2. The impulse line at Fry's is no longer so difficult to traverse.

3. You think back to the days when you were broke and happy, and not just broke and stressed.

About 3/4 of that list apply to me or are starting to... it sucks really. Especially the drinking thing, since I just turned 21 a few months ago.
