Being an adult requires that you stop doing certain practices from your childhood. College requires you to be dependent, so waiting half a semester to bring your laundry home for your mom to wash isn’t going to cut it. The silver lining is we can now vote and (look old enough to) buy alcohol, but it still sucks that we’re too grown up for our moms to make our ponytails, we’re too old to order off the vastly less expensive kid’s menu, and we have too much homework for 9 o’clock to be our bedtime. However, there are the childish habits that we stopped doing sometime during puberty that we shouldn’t have discontinued. We’re not girls, but we’re not yet women, so go crazy with the nail art before you’re really a grown up.
