    17 Things You Only Really Start To Appreciate As An Adult

    Sorry Mum for throwing all your Tupperware out, I never realised how expensive it was.

    1. The idea of an impending weekend with zero plans.

    2. Or when someone cancels plans you kind of regretted making.

    when they cancelled the plans so u don't have to be the one to say it

    3. Tupperware containers.

    I now know I'm an adult, I'm price checking Tupperware

    Fuck, who even knew how expensive they really were?

    4. Using a fresh towel after a shower.

    5. Nice sheets.

    Being an adult is weird. I bought really nice new bed sheets for 50% off and it's the best thing that's happened to me all week.

    6. A sunny day, mainly because it's perfect to do your washing.

    You know your an adult when your happy the sun is shining because you know your washing will get dry.

    7. The feeling of a freshly-cleaned house.

    8. A nice scented candle.

    You know your becoming an adult when you realize just how great getting a candle as a gift actually is

    9. Actually having a nap.

    10. And getting to bed at a reasonable time.

    11. The idea of living back at home.

    12. That point where you actually appreciate a good old home-cooked meal.

    13. Like a roast for example. It used to be like "ew Mum, whyyyy" and now it's like FUCK ME UP WITH THOSE ROAST VEGETABLES.

    I don't like this adult thing, I want my mum to cook me roast dinners and make me hot chocolate

    14. Making a list of things to do then crossing every single thing off.

    15. An empty inbox.

    16. Practical gifts.

    The irony of me being an adult is that I'd be happy with pajamas, socks/draws as a Christmas present.

    Suddenly socks, underwear, and candles seem far less boring.

    17. And of course, your parents.
