6 Things We Never Thought We’d Become Obsessed with in Our Late 20s
A few years ago you were absolutely okay with eating pasta and pizza for dinner each night, living in a very small flat with three buddies and rocking out on the dance floor till dawn. The time flies though, and you steadily head towards your third decade.
Here are 6 things I had no idea I would become so excited about a few years ago!
Cooking elaborate dishes
You know you are in your late 20s when pasta no longer sounds like a decent dinner option. We now crave for exquisite tastes and opt to spend weeks learning to cook.
Yes, it takes a hell of a lot of time, practice and a few kilos of wasted food, but we feel extremely proud as we read all the rave comments under the photo!
Professional cleaning services
The truth is, you’ve never liked cleaning up. Living in a cramped, cluttered cave with wrappers behind the couch was pretty fine in college, yet absolutely unbearable in your late 20s. Now, every other weekend, you crouch and run sprints around the house with a vacuum cleaner.
Going to bed before midnight
Why should anyone sane stay out till dawn and rave like a madman to get up at 6 am still hang overed and absolutely devastated? All the cool kids like you are going to bed early.
A “big night out” now is more like – let’s cook something cool, drink a bottle of good wine and go wild by trying out a fancy dessert.
Enjoying music from back in the 90s
You still remember lyrics to most ‘N SYNC songs, right? And chances are, no one’s going to make fun of you when you mention that in public. In most cases, you’ll end up doing a karaoke session and going as low as “Hit Me Baby One More Time” while having the time of your lives!
You are no longer friends with Forever 21 and H&M. At some point, you’ve started feeling really awkward when walking in. Besides, you are tired of throwing away another pile of tiny dresses, small t-shirts and shrunken sweaters.In our late 20s, we like to spend more on clothes only if it’s actually worth the price. A pair of rubber designer flip-flops for INR2000 is a rip-off, but a pair of good suede loafers is a wise investment.
Telling the truth
We no longer care that much if someone thinks we are “rude” or “unkind” when expressing our opinions and telling people what we really think. We are too tired of pretending to be “okay” when things are bad and can usually just spill everything out to our close friends without being ashamed.
Also, by our late 20s, we’ve come to realize that we cannot change who we are or change the people around us. But we can always let them go and get rid of any toxic relationships that spoil our lives.
