Wearing Makeup Every Single Day
The older you are, the more comfortable you'll feel in your skin. That means you won't feel the need to constantly cover your face with makeup. You'll save it for the days you're going out.
How Popular You Were at Any Previous Stage of Your Life
When you're 25, it doesn't matter if you were once the prom queen or the biggest loser in your high school. No one is going to remember or care.
You used to spend hours stalking your classmates to see who was dating who, but that won't matter once you're 25. You'll only use Facebook to chat with close friends, and that's about it.
How Many People You Slept with in College
It doesn't matter if your number is high or low. As long as you had a good time, that's all that counts.
How Much Money Your Parents Have
You're on your own, so if your parents don't have an extra twenty bucks to give you, it won't bother you. You can take care of yourself.
Where You Shop
You're no longer embarrassed to admit that you shop at KMart. After all, fellow adults will be impressed that you can put together such a good outfit without paying an arm and a leg.
How Cool Your Friday Night Plans Are
As long as you're able to relax on Friday, you'll be happy, even if Netflix is the only one to keep you company.
If You Achieved Goals Set to Accomplish by 25
When you reach 25 and realize you don't have that job, boyfriend, achievement you said you would by then, you'll realize it doesn't matter. There's no time limit on accomplishing your dreams so there's no need to set an age limit to reach them.
Being Good at Sports
When you reach your mid-20s no one cares if you were captain of the cheerleading squad, or on the football team, or star baseball player. You'll be praised for minimal exercise effort because the older you get the more you realize it's harder to squeeze in those few jogs around the block than it once was.
If You Had a Boyfriend in High School
High school boyfriends and even some early college ones don't really count. They're the training bra for when you grow up and actually start dating, so don't feel bad if you went through high school and weren't hanging on some guys arm having him walk you to class. You may be less experienced but you certainly aren't less of a person for it!
