25 is a very important age – thanks to Adele and her new album title, we are all starting to realise this! But when the clock strikes twelve on your twenty-fifth birthday, you begin to ponder some very harsh realities:
You’ll never be in your early-twenties again. It’s all about the mid-twenties now.
Half of your school friends are either married or have children.
Your Facebook timeline only highlights this point!
Eating a Big Mac, fries and a strawberry milkshake really screws over your metabolism.
Happy meals become crappy meals!
If you were to ever audition for the X Factor, you’d be in the ‘Overs’ category.
Let’s face it, they never win!
It’s no longer acceptable to wear pigtail plaits.
You’re the same age Britney Spears was when she had her public meltdown and shaved her hair off.
If one of the biggest-selling music artists in the world has problems, what chance do we have???
When you’re filling out an online form, you’re no longer in the 18-24 age range.
In 5 years, you’re going to be 30!!!
You’re old enough to ‘know better’.
There’s really no blaming your ‘youth’ on anything anymore! 🙁
You actually look forward to seeing your family.
You can no longer do an all-nighter without it messing up your sleep pattern for the next 12 months.
Even the coffee and Red Bull doesn’t have the same affect as it used to!
You actually need a genuine reason to go out and get drunk.
If it’s not a birthday party or leaving-do, you’re not going!
Hangovers REALLY suck!
You’re no closer to understanding the meaning of life than you were at 18.
Admit it, you thought you’d have it figured out by now!
Your hair is beginning to turn grey.
“Hello Nice ‘n Easy! You will be my ally for the rest of my life!”
Anti-wrinkle cream is something you’re seriously considering investing in.
You no longer fall over, you ‘have a fall’.
And even a little stumble can be pretty nasty!
You’re excited to receive cookware and scented candles for your birthday and Christmas.
Novelty roulette drinking game? No thanks!
You now take your job seriously.
There’s no time for watching cats on YouTube when there’s a promotion at stake!
You’ve been inhaling and exhaling air for a quarter of a century!!!
We’re all ancient!!! :'(
