A thread about the little and big things adults get excited about

for example

I did the budgeting today and realised we had saved £50 this month by making cuts, on top of that we had some extra to put away due good money management and switching banks ect..

I went to pay off the credit card and realised I had already done it and we were in credit so the money we were going to use to pay it off is for treats and some to go in the savings account

we were able to put a large amount into the savings this month

It made me happy as we are usually treading water

our mortgage payments are also lower now

When you start seeing the truths of reality.

Of course unicorns are real.

I felt like I became an adult when I got my first job, but really felt it when I started living on my own.. Completely supporting yourself with no outside help is what I classify an adult to be.

When you realize that you have to pay your share of the bill when you go out to eat.

Yeah, polishing off a loan/debt is an amazing feeling. I was disgustingly cheerful for at least a week after making my final car payment. Now I've only got another thirty or so years on the house.

When my three daughters were born, I became an adult.

That's when it hit me that there were humans depending on me to not always think of myself, to be selfless when it matters, and to stay really, really calm when they are completely insane or sad or in love.

I think when you realize, I mean really realize, that you are not the center of the world, then you become an adult.

Having a hard time becoming an adult and the reality of growing up. Which is really sad to admit. I don't really want to be one of those people in their 40s yet still a boy inside because I ran away.

You know you're an adult when...
You buy a computer after saving up for 8 months, and then get grieved over having to buy a new video card
(Well, I wanted to upgrade the card anyway, plus I got a good deal on a powerful one, so it's not all that bad lol)
