signs you're becoming an adult

A strange thing is happening, I think I'm actually becoming an adult. I know you technically become an adult at 21, but I'm just now starting to feel like one. And at just 3 months shy of 23 it's about time. I always said that I thought 22 would be the age that you should really be considered an adult because most people have entered the working world by then, but up until now I felt like a teenager playing pretend. Some days I still feel like an imposture, but slowly those feelings are disappearing. The following is a list of things that have happened to me recently that really made me stop and realize I'm not a child anymore.

you actually have to file taxes (PS don't forget today is the deadline!)

your go-to snack is no longer a snack cake but Greek yogurt

you hear about teenagers doing something dumb and shake your head saying "kids these days"

you look people up on LinkedIn instead of Facebook

you have dreams about investing in the stock market and saving for retirement

your idea of a fun Saturday night is reading a book in bed before falling asleep before midnight
