April 23, 2019 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Living on your own is peak adulting. Are you ready to be independent and get a place of your own? Time to find out. 1. It’s three days before payday, and you’re … Literally on edge. It’s street food and water from the office for you until payday comes around. Looking around shopping sites, and putting stuff in your cart. You’ve got the cash, but you'll wait until payday to click ‘purchase.’ It's best to be safe! Good whether or not your salary comes in the morning or the afternoon—you’ve got enough cash and credit for what you need. 2. Your favorite brand has a flash sale! You … Log on and get what you need, plus a little bit of small stuff—treat yourself! Look around the site during your downtime for a good deal. If you don't get to buy anything, that's okay. Stay up and keep clicking ‘refresh’ 30 minutes before the flash sale begins. You have to get those deals! 3. Your breakfast consists of … Anything that’s on the family dining table—you grab and go! What you feel like eating when you go to a drive- thru, or what your favorite restaurant has for brunch. What you can whip up quickly, usually something simple like eggs, rice, and something fast to fry. 4. Your cooking skills consist of … Ordering takeout from a fast food chain—time is gold! Frying and reheating food. A few tried and tested recipes that you can whip up if needed. 5. The state of your bedroom looks … Clean and organized. Everything is in its place. You don’t have time to wade through a mess every day. Messy, but you know where everything is. Like a typhoon hit it. Who has time to tidy up? Not you! 6. Your savings account is … Great! There’s more than six months’ worth of your salary in there. Zilch. Minimum amount, at best. Okay. There’s a little left over after each payday, but it would be better if you could save some more. 7. The bills you pay … Are what’s yours and the utility bills that your parents have asked you to shoulder—electricity, water, phone bills, plus internet and cable bills. Are what’s yours and the internet and cable bill in the house—that’s your way of pulling your weight. Are only what’s yours, which is your monthly cellphone bill. 8. Chores are … Okay, but you don’t need to do them as you’ve had helpers and yayas in the house for as long as you could remember. Part of the daily routine. Assigned per family member, but there are some chores that you would skip if you could get the chance. 9. The work you do every day is … Great! You not only have a day job that you love and have been with for a couple of years, you also have a thriving side business. Fine, but you’re looking into doing some side hustles, and gearing towards putting up your own business. Okay, but there are days when you would rather stay home.Your salary isn’t worth the stress sometimes! 10. The ideal night out for you is… A movie and a bottle of wine with a friend or solo—vino makes everything special. Home and chilling on your own—self care FTW! Dinner and drinks with friends, and crawling home when the sun is up!
