Being an adult is the most boring thing on earth.

When I was younger, all that I wanted was to be a grown-up. To me, adulthood signify to being free and having as much fun as you wanted. There was nothing to hold you back because life was what you made it. As an adult, I can tell you that none of these things are true. Adulthood is not fun or free. It is full of responsibility and obligation. To be honest, the most exciting thing that I have to look forward to as an adult is my yearly tax return. Once a year I know I’m going to get a few thousand dollars to invest however I see fit. This means, I could go on an awesome vacation, a shopping spree, or update my indoor environment with new furniture. In reality, I actually end up spending it on practical things like paying off student debt and making home improvements. This year, I had to use my tax return to repair my air conditioning system. As summer was approaching, I knew that my cooling system wasn’t going to make it through another summer. I took my tax return money and called my HVAC technician. I had him install the most up-to-date cooling system on the market, and kissed my money goodbye. Next year, I already know what I’m using my return for. My air vents desperately need to be cleaned. I don’t think my home’s air ducts has been scrubbed in over 10 years. Since I’m operating a brand new air conditioning system, I certainly don’t want it to be stressed with clogged air ducts. I know that the duct cleaning service will be fairly expensive because there will likely be repairs to make. I’m not happy about using my entire tax refund for boring indoor air control, but I’ll be excited to breathe easier next year.
