Adulting Advice Told by Candy Slogans

I’m only wearing one sock today. I realized this two hours after I started working today. It’s been a rough week and, honestly, some days I wish I could take a break from adulting. Clearly I can’t handle it.

That being said I’ve been pretending I’m a real adult for almost two years now. Today is a less than impressive day for me, but most of the time I do a decent job. Here is some advice I have for my fellow fake adults and almost adults I picked up these handy tips from all the candy I eat which, for anyone that doesn’t know me, is a lot.

Give me a Break –Kit Kat

Maybe it’s the fact that Kit Kats have four parts, but in my opinion they’re pretty smart. We’re human. We all need breaks. Take a night off adulting and thinking about anything stressful and do something fun! Take a vacation! Let your mom take care of you when you’re home for the weekend. Let’s face it, you both want it.

Only Smarties have the answer. –Smarties

Be smart. If you don’t know the answer, it’s okay to ask questions. There are other adults, real ones even, out there that can help you. Your boss would rather have you ask the question than do something wrong and your parents know the answers to everything and love hearing from you. Heck, even your friends know a little about what’s up so ask those questions.

There’s no wrong way. –Reese’s

I’m pretty sure everyone I know is getting married this year. No, that’s not actually true but there are quite a few people that are. There is a small part of me that thinks they are all crazy. However, I’m wrong. They are ready. I’m not. Simple as that. For those of you that are single, good. It’s better to be single than with someone who isn’t good for you or makes you unhappy. The truth is, much like eating a Reese’s, there is no wrong way. Single, engaged, married or confused, you’re doing it right.

Melt in your mouth, not your hands. –M&Ms

I’m pretty sure most adults are superheroes. That or they practice magic. How does anyone have time to work all days and have dinner ready before 8 p.m.? This is still something I am trying to figure out. Granted I usually work out between work and super, but still even the days I don’t it can be a challenge. My solution? Crockpot recipes. Throw it all together before you go to work, or even the night before, and a “melt in your mouth” meal will be ready when you get home. Almost like magic.

Hungry? Why wait? –Snickers

Leftovers are your friend. They save a ton of time and taste almost as good. I used to hate them. But it turns out if you’re the only one around no one else will eat them and wasting food is no something I like to do. Therefore I suggest we all be like Snickers and embrace leftovers!

Well, there you have it. You should always listen to your candy. Which probably mean you should eat more of it. Please feel free to share any advice you have with me….or your candy. I welcome both.
