2. When you realised you need to be saving a portion of your money for the ~future~.


3. When you got home from a long day of work and your whole house was a mess.


And you knew you had to clean it eventually.

4. When you found yourself cleaning up after your housemates like you're their goddamn parent.


It really did help you appreciate your mum more though.
