Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good Thursday. I had a pretty busy day today running around getting things for our home! Adulting if you must. Yesterday I posted my favorite things about adulting. Today I wanted to share the not so good things. These are the things that sometimes make me wish I was back home with my mama!
You have to kill bugs yourself
Nothing scares me more than a bug. Any kind of bug. Spiders, beetles, flys, anything you can think of; I am scared of it. I would always ask someone in my family to kill any bugs I unpleasantly came across. Now that I’m alone I don’t have that luxury besides when my boyfriend isn’t at work. I usually just run away or call someone for over the phone moral support. Just the other day I had to pee so badly but there was a nasty ugly bug in the bathroom. Isaiah was sleeping and my boyfriend was at work. So it was just me and the bug. I decided using the bathroom wasn’t so important after all. I came up with a plan that if it really came down to it, I’d whip out one if Isaiah’s diapers. Luckily I was able to hold it an hour until my boyfriend came home.
Fun fact: Entomophobia is an extreme and persistent fear of insects. It’s what’s referred to as a specific phobia, which is a phobia that focuses on a particular object. An insect phobia is one of the most common types of specific phobia.
Washing a ton of dishes
I don’t have an issue with washing dishes but I’ve definitely never washed as many dishes as I have to live on my own. No matter what kind of day it is there will always be dishes in the sink. If not for us then there are at least bottles for Isaiah in there. It takes a while to wash the dishes. I’m able to watch 40 minutes of a podcast sometimes!
All of the other cleaning
Cleaning is an absolute must! For the most part, I find cleaning to be quite therapeutic as well. I can just get lost in it but that’s only if I am peacefully cleaning. It is hard to clean a toilet when there’s a little guy that keeps coming around. I take pride in keeping my home clean so of course, I like to do it but sometimes it becomes a bit of exhausting.
Being alone can be scary sometimes
Don’t get me wrong, living alone is amazing and super peaceful but sometimes not having everyone together gives me anxiety. It’s a bit harder because I live in a complex in a new town with people I’ve never seen before. So I have to have my third eye open at all times. Also with my anxiety, I tend to be a bit paranoid sometimes.
What are your least favorite things about adulting? Are you terrified of bugs? Do you prefer to be alone, with people, or a little bit of both?
