    Appearance of wrinkles all of a sudden...

    1. When you would rather spend your weekends relaxing at home than going out with friends.


    No makeup, no bra, no cares!

    2. When it became too hard to party all night.


    Pulling all-nighters was nothing when you were in college, but now, getting your beauty sleep is a must.

    3. When you started to care as much about skin care as you do about makeup.

    4. When you splurged on soap or body lotion.

    5. When your friends all started getting married.


    All your recent photos on Facebook are from weddings you went to...

    6. You've lost track of what songs are "popular."


    So now you only sing old jams at karaoke.

    Bell peppers? Delicious!
