ever since monday night, i've been trying to understand when i got so old.
i came home from class and was welcomed to the following conversation:
john: hey...jaym...i have something to tell you...
me: this is never good, is it?
john: i had a guy come over while you were in class...
me: this is weird.
john: and i realized we really need to change something...
me: this is really weird.. a man? while i was in class? changing? awkkkward...
john: yes. we need new gutters.
me: nooooo!!!!! i'm officially old!!!!!!!
so it happened. i'm old and now spending my free time (and money) discussing GUTTERS and leafguard and "potential foundation issues in the future" and aluminum and end caps and ohhh my! i never thought it would happen.
since i've realized i was old and getting new gutters, i've been thinking of so many other things that have changed during the past 3-5 years for me. i'm 25 years old and having that detox reality that i'm not in college anymore. i'm actually 3 months from graduating GRAD school. MBA world here i come.
the list of realizing i'm officially old: can you relate??
-getting new gutters
-the differences of LOVING undergrad for being in COLLEGE and not having a care in the world to going to GRAD school and realizing COLLEGE is a whole different world
-spending saturday nights painting walls
-working out because its the cool thing to do on campus and wearing your sports bra and yoga shorts because college girls weigh approximately 89 pounds. now working out because my metabolism suddenly hates me.
-tired vs hungover
-college: girlfriends call to announce breakups
after college: girlfriends call to announce engagements
-a crazy/successful night goes from staying out til 4am to mastering the fishtail braid.
-college: got an A!
after college: got a Baby!
-facebook becomes the means of networking instead of stalking
-at kentucky, the 5th floor of the library was where you went to hang out with your friends and party, for a lack of better words, and it was a daily activity. a pre-game, if you will. now, we must schedule get togethers with friends months in advance to accommodate the 14 weddings we have this year.
and last but not least, i'm officially old because
-i'm sad i killed my basil and mint.
what was the moment you realized you were officially old?!
