I discovered that being alone for a week and trying to figure out adulthood can make me kind of grumpy.
My apartment is filthy? I have no internet and setting it up is unexpectedly complicated? Job applications are incredibly frustrating? I have no one to talk to? There is an unexpected fourth roommate no one told me about? Under normal circumstances, I save swear words for really choice moments; since I don't swear much, if I do, anyone who knows me is well aware that I REALLY mean it. Last week, though, the aforementioned circumstances had me swearing like a sailor to myself (well, maybe not quite that badly, but comparably speaking...), since nobody could hear me anyway and I had to vent my frustrations about ants and dust and no internet somehow.
My made-of-awesome roommate and best friend has returned, though, thank goodness. And I have discovered that, as in studenting, it's the little things that make adulting bearable.
1. Drive-thru banks are kind of entertaining.
2. Finding a candy from the front desk at the hostel in Toronto in your purse.
3. Phone calls.
4. Making CD covers for the music you get to play in YOUR CAR.
5. Having time to write.
6. Getting a library card.
7. Reading books that were not assigned to you.
8. Feeling loved because you have seven zillion Facebook notifications after not having been online constantly.
9. Buying stamps with tigers on them.
10. When you finally do get the internet back, it is AWESOME.
