Hi guys and welcome to our place! 😀
As all of my spontaneous posts I don’t really know where I’m going with this… For you to understand I was on the subway today and (I kid you not) I was not in my mobile phone. This way I was able to see the humans around me and I happened to overhear a conversation of a girl next to me. This was her phrase:
– Oh… You know… It’s that kind of season where the house is warming up and the fruit does not last more than a few days. For example, those bananas… I even tried to save one of them and brought it to work today, but then when I was going to eat it was already spoiled!
That’s when it hit me! That, my friends, is na adult speaking and I’m completely ages away from that! For you to understand it would take ages to have that kind of thought process! First that the fruit was getting spoiled sooner because the house is warmer, second having the thought of salvaging a banana by bringing it to work so I could eat it! But, even more than that is the facto f speaking about it! Like, that’s the ultimate adult right there and I’m miles away to that point!
Don’t take me wrong… I do have a job. One that I do have high responsibilities, responsibilities that I wouldn’t put myself into if I was in charge of the company! I’m also kind of married… I mean we ARE living together for 1 year and a half and we share house chores so, yeah, basically married… I do play my bills and I even do the laundry… But man, I’m not an adult in the slightest!!!
To be honest, the most thing I do is slothing around in the sofa. My boyfriend comes to me and talks about these kind of important subjects, like ways to save in the rent house, that he has to do this or that for dinner because it will spoil if he won’t and I just say “yes” and continue to sloth around in the PS or PC. However, in my defence I have to come up with all kind of ways to take “nódoas” from my boyfriend’s clothes because that guy just can’t eat without getting his clothes dirty. (And when I come up it’s mainly calling my mom and ask her xD)
So, yeah, I don’t really see myself an adult and here’s why:
It can be about politics, it can be about the last news, it can even be about the banana that is going to spoil. I just don’t have those kind of conversations, neither I know how to start one! You could argue that’s because I’m an introvert, but no! Not in this case! It’s just things that I would never think about in having a conversation and I just hate catching up with news… I mean, if they are not big ones then they really don’t matter to me!
My conversations normally are about gaming, work (that’s adult at least), creativity work (for me is blogging, for my best friend is “mobilia” at the moment( and then the rest is just goofing around! Yeah, I do sometimes have deep and important conversations, but those are not that often.
I don’t know how to do my taxes:
Taxes here in Portugal are not even 10% as difficult or complex as the American way. In fact, most of it is automatic! But, still… I just don’t know how to do it! I have a cousin who is in accounting and I always ask her to do it, every… Single… Year!
But, I know that the thing is not that difficult! And I am from management so I probably would be at ease learning how to do it, but I just can’t put myself into it and learn it!
I’m terrible managing my own life:
This one I understood it in my college years! All my friends knew where they were going to travel next year, or what optional subjects they would take in the next semester, events for the following 6 months and what they were going to call their first born child… Ok, now I’m pushing it! But, the rest is basically true! Ok, maybe this is not how normal college students act, but since I’m from a management degree, probably my teammates had more love for managing than average…
Well, I’m not like that! I don’t even know what I’m going to do next week! Unless it’s the weekend that I come back to my hometown I never really know what I’m going to do and with who! But, guess what? Normally I always do something over the weekend… Of course having you closest friend living in the same house helps, but I’m going further and say that normally we always invite friends over or something like that.
So yeah, I HAAAAAAAAATE managing my own life! Even in work I struggle a little bit everytime I need to come up with a plan! I mean, there are so many things that can (and normally do) change along the way that I really don’t understand what’s the point of it!
I appear and feel I am still 18:
Ok, there are some aspects in your appearance that you can’t change… However, there are others that you can! I always prefer to use snickers (thank god I work in a place that lets me do that), I prefer hoodies to any kind of upper wear and when it comes to pants… Well, those are pretty normal I guess! I also have this Justin Bieber hair… Putting all of this together and tadaaa, you get a guy that seems to have stopped aging when he was 18.
The thing is, I do still see myself as 18. I had a life where I had to grow terribly quick, so even though I’m not an adult I still am mature. So yeah, I don’t think that I changed that much over the last few years… I think the things that I changed the most was be more confident in myself, take life less serious and think a little more about myself and not others.
Concluding, I’m just a 18 year old teen that already ended his degree and his working as a marketing manager (more like a director, since I’m the only marketer here) stuck in a body of a guy with 25, but appears to be 18 😛
What about you? I know some of you are still teens and therefore won’t relate to this post at all, but if you are an adult (or at least you are supposed to) did ever overheard something that just made you think “I still have a long way to become a full fledged adult!”? Comment down below 😀 (Aaaand…. I just remembered that I forgot to water the plants – See? Adult right here!!!)
