1. You find yourself judging the "younger generation"


While you were their age you thought you were cool, but now that you're 25 and above, that mindset hasn't changed. However you can't stop yourself from shaking your head and sighing when you see teenagers and college students behave like a bunch of immature fools. With great developments in technology, you can't help but witness how much more easier your juniors have it than you. "Lazy!" you call them, while you are convinced generations after them are pretty much f***ed for life.

2. A sale at the grocery store is important


It's so important that you mark it on your calendar. You just have to be there to get great deals on all the things you need to stock up on. So much so, that you put all plans on hold for this.

Better to hoard than to pay more for stuff in the future.

3. Forget the weather and politics, your small talk revolves around prices of commodities


When onion prices increased rapidly, you went insane, your insecurity was evident while talking with your friends as you predicted the prices would go further up. Now you're relieved they've come down again.

When it comes to arguing with fruit and vegetable vendors, you're a pro. You don't know how you got it but it seems you have been observing your mother a lot whenever you made trips to the market.

4. You prefer to stay in on a Friday


Forget the urge to go out partying and bar hopping, it's Friday night, end it on good note with some good company and crash out for the weekend. The working week has just drained out. When you were a college student, your nocturnal nature made you sleep in the daytime, but now you just want to have a body clock that's normal where socialising should not go beyond 10 pm.

5. You want order


Coasters on your coffee table, beds should be made, dishes to be done. Your home is no longer the sty it used to be. The mere sight of something out of place disturbs you and if you have a room mate, who may or may not be responsible, god alone help him. There seems to be a strange emotional connection between your emotional well being and overall cleanliness.

5

As for interior decor, you much prefer your walls to be whitewashed with furnishings and pieces that are dark in colour. "Less is more", you tell yourself, convinced you are at the height of minimalist sensibility.

6. Your bag has everything


Convinced that you might just need them when you least expect it, your bag is full of food, medical supplies, cosmetics, safety pins and stationery. Better to be ready than helpless, is the motto you inherited from your mother, whose purse was full of things one might need in an emergency.

6

7. Fashion choices


Rather than 'stylish' and 'in fashion' the keywords you are looking for are 'sensible', 'comfortable' and 'durable'. This is probably why you spend more at Marks & Spencer's than Forever 21.

8. A nightmare on Facebook


While scrolling down your wall you can't help but like and comment on everything that you see before you. I mean after all, you do want to make your friends feel that you are genuinely happy for them and are appreciative of their efforts for sharing various pieces of information.

Little do you know that many of your Facebook friends are putting you on their restricted list, lest there might be an embarrassing comment like "Bless your heart :)"

9. Children are angels


You can't help but find human babies adorable even if they are crying and pooping all over the place. You were allergic to them when you were younger, but now you feel all maternal every time you're babysitting your nieces and nephews.

"Will I ever get married and have kids?", the thought gives you butterflies as you fantasize about what kind of parent you would be. (Hint: Just like your mom and dad)

10. Concerts are no longer appealing


Unless it is in an auditorium where you can sit your a** down with some personal space and don't have to stand on your toes to see the performers on stage.

10

11. You realise they were always right


As a teenager you were rebellious and unreasonable, viewing your parents as tyrannical and sometimes evil. But now you can't help but agree with all those bits of advice they gave you.

You would bite your tongue till it bled rather than admitting it to them.

11

12. Following a balanced diet


No more eating whatever you feel like, now you're on the balanced diet meal plan with lots of greens, fruits, carbohydrates along with a moderate intake of protein and minimal consumption of fats and sugar. You didn't care if you ate junk food regularly when you were younger, but now it matters a lot. Diet and exercise are two huge parts of your lifestyle as you consider never touching red meat again.

12

13. You relate more to parents than kids


Whether its in real life or in movies, you seem to understand the burden on the parents more than how it affects the children. Watching your cousins and siblings raise their kids, you take mental notes of what you should and should not be doing.
