Remember when you were a kid and you thought being an adult would automatically mean you had it all together? Lol. You might have a job, house, and even kids, but those mean nothing! Here are the universal tell-tale signs that you actually have your sh*t together.
1. Less than 1000 unread emails in your inbox
Yup, you read emails when they come. Sometimes. You’re not a crazy person with zero unread messages, because that would be absurd. But you keep it under control.
2. Your business attire isn’t your church/wedding/prom attire
You have more than one pair of dressy slacks because you’re an adult dammit!
3. You have an umbrella in your car
Be it winter, spring, summer, or fall, you’re prepared. You also have one (or both!) of the following items to prove your adultyness:
4. You reply to texts when you see them
Gone are the days of looking at a text and thinking, “I’ll reply to that later.” You’re not fallin’ for that. You reply to a text the moment you see it. Sure, you might be driving on the freeway, or in an interview, but gosh darn you’re a grownup!
5. You bring a sweater to the movie theater
Your parents always told you to wear something warm to the movies. You laughed in their faces every time, and every time you’d leave the theater shivering. Now that you have your sh*t together, you even have a dedicated movie sweater complete with hidden compartments to smuggle in candy. Oh, you don’t? Just me? Okay.
6. You write on your calendar when it’s time to change Brita filters
This is arguably the most reliable sign that you have your sh*t together. Extra points if you set it a few days before it’s time to change filters to give yourself time to buy a new one. Super extra points if you already have a new one waiting in the wings like WHAAA?! (Also we quickly found that photo and assume it’s of a Brita pitcher. I mean, what else could be @TheBritaFilter?)
