Why being a "grown up" sucks

The numero uno reason on my list of why being a grow up sucks is having to wake up early every single weekday. I use to be a late sleeper but not so much anymore. Late to me would now be 9:30 as opposed to when it use to be like Noon to 1:00 in the afternoon {circa high school and college}.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want to sleep the day away but I need my sleep. Especially if I stay out late the night before. Which brings me to the #2 reason why being a grown up sucks: Not being able to go out and do fun things on "work nights". Yes, I said it. I refuse to go out and do something on a work night because I know I will be utterly exhausted and unproductive the next day and probably look like hell ran over. And because I do not want to be "that girl" who comes into the office with bud light hair, last nights makeup, smelling like cigarettes with bar funk on  her feet. No, no... not I.

The case here is that I keep seeing all these friends on facebook and twitter posting about going to see The Pretty Lights tonight in Tuscaloosa. So much fun. I remember when I first started liking electronica music The Pretty Lights were the first that I really got into. I am not a huge electronica fan but I really do like it.  Not trying to get nostalgic here but isn't it funny when certain songs take you back to certain places in your life... remind you of certain people... certain memories... how you were feeling. Okay moving forward.

Let me make this clear, I love my job and the fact that I have a job in general but I would love love to go see Pretty Lights tonight. But I do not have the will power to stay out late and still get up and be bright eyed and busy tailed and if I did have this will power it would require not drinking and I certainly do not have that will power either.

Oh girl, sleeping into me is 7:30-8:00 am, even if I stayed out until the wee hours of the morning the night before! My body just hates me and wakes me up no later than that. It's a drag but I've gotten use to it over the years!

And I still go out on week nights occasionally, my only thought process is that I'm young and I will deal with the consequences the next day, even if I have to wake up an hour earlier to shower off the filth from bars! Haha

I am the same way. I have 8,9 and 9:30 am classes this semester....MY SENIOR YEAR to be exact. I'm having the struggle with enjoying my last moments of college and getting good grades and not failing classes by not waking up for them haha!

I'm the same way but I think every once and a while you've gotta suck it up and go have some FUN! Think of it this way - when you're in your 30's and 40's, you're still not going to want to go out but you'll probably be wishing you had done it more in your 20's before babies and mortgages!
