30 Signs You Are All Grown UpAdulting can be really hard and probably should come with a certificate of competency.

Graduating from a uni student to full blown adult, you no longer cook two-minute noodles with the kettle.

You’ve upgraded to stir fry using posh hokkien noodles. And a wok! You even know what that is.

Adulting can be really hard, I often wonder if it should come with a practical and theoretical examination where you are awarded a certificate of competency.

Our tastes change, our knowledge increases and our cynicism grows along with a very random, spontaneously sprouting hair from the jawline. Where did it even come from? How long has it been there? Why did I never even notice it before it grew long enough to use as fishing line?

If you’re reading down the list going ‘OMG that’s me, you’ll know you’re all grown up.

Welcome to adulthood…

30. You collect plastic bags.

And store them in plastic bags. You might even fold them into special origami triangle shapes with a little pocket on the side to tuck in the loose ends.
