We may look young, but we don’t always act like it
In just a little over a month, I’ll be turning 26, but truthfully, TJ and I both act more like we’re senior citizens. I think I’ve always been a bit of an old soul, acting much older than my years. There’s even a video of me at my 5th birthday party where my dad dressed up like a clown and told me that the cupcakes for the party looked good. My response? “You’re welcome to have one, if you’d like.” Word for word, at 5 years old. So now, just a few weeks shy of 26, I thought I’d share with you the top 5 ways I act like an 80 year old, accompanied by How I Met Your Mother gifs.
1. Having dinner after 5:30pm sounds like some kind of late night torture. I’m ready for dinner when I get home from work a little after 5. Waiting hours to have dinner? No thanks.

2. Even on the weekends, I don’t usually sleep later than 6:30am. My internal clock is telling me it’s time to get up! Plus, then I don’t feel bad about wasting the day away by sleeping.

3. The “kids these days” drive me crazy. Why are they so loud all the time? And why do 9 year olds have iPads? I don’t get it.
It’s 8:30 on a Tuesday night – why are you outside playing?
4. Going out somewhere loud and crowded sounds like the worst thing ever. Loud music, tons of people, and nowhere to sit – this is supposed to be fun?
Why go out when we could just stay in?
5. The thought of having to learn a new social media site exhausts me. I’m just now learning how to use Twitter. I can’t even think about introducing Vine or Snapchat into my world.
When I hear people say this, I’m like “bummer, now I have to figure out a new site”
Luckily, I married an equally old soul, so TJ and I can happily enjoy acting like mid-twenties senior citizens together.
