DJ Trippy T: I'm an Adult


DJtrippyT

Recommended Posts

Remember when you were a kid - especially when you were around 15-16-ish - and being an adult seemed like something you absolutely could not wait to be? 

 

tenor.gif.916e0a884da6f0cc2742cb7a1e5f6dc7.gif

 

 

Yeah, I know. 

 

Adulthood sounded GREAT. 

 

No testing or homework or grades!

 

Champagne toasts every night!

 

Have an awesome wardrobe!

 

Wear whatever you want -  without getting yelled at by your dad!

 

Eat dessert every day if you want to!

 

Go on exotic vacations!

 

Fuck whoever you feel like!*

 

As it happens, adulthood seems to have become one ongoing ass-chap of petty irritants, like arguing with contractors, being chided about cholesterol, doing your taxes, being forced to watch CNN when you don't want to by well meaning relatives, variable interest rates (never in your favor, either) and other sand in the underpants of my life. 

 

SO BORING. 

 

Where are my privileges? My dream lifestyle? My devoted cadre of friends, willing to jet around the world at a moment's notice? My harem of side bitches, hanging on my every witticism? 

 

Really, why would anyone WANT to be an adult?

 

IT'S TIME TO RECLAIM ADULTHOOD FOR THE FUN PEOPLE 

 

unnamed.gif.b898102a1e935edd8c97c98035a17496.gif

 

I am actually working on my nutrition for this six-week period, which is so boring that I want to drill out my own eyes, so I wasn't going to challenge. But I would miss everybody and I look terrible in a hair shirt, so as an antidote I'm going to do a challenge where I try to embrace all my OTHER vices to distract myself from protein macros and net carbs and other such dull things, as long as said vices don't make me fat.

Fat-er. Whatever.

I made a list of all the things that made adulthood seem so alluring to my 15-year-old self, and I will attempt to indulge as many of them as I can without the ATF getting involved. 

 

Here we go!

 

Champagne Toast:

 

I love champagne, more for what it seems to signify than what it is, so I will keep those mini-bottles of champagne in my fridge at all times during the challenge and drink them whenever I feel moved to do so. (But responsibly, of course. I'm an adult, not an idiot.)

 

I don't know why, but drinking an "adult" thing like bourbon has always seemed incredibly sophisticated to me. (Deffy, Tank, and Sloth will now know where this challenge sprang from). I will try one or two types of bourbon per week for the length of the challenge until I find one I like. Or maybe I find out that I don't like bourbon and I decide to never drink it again. That's fine too!

Fabulous wardrobe:

My job seems to be working out and I did two races in the last three weeks, and after each one I got a bonus, so instead of being "responsible" aka boring, I blew half the bonus money on some new threads and an assload of jewelry, so I get to dress in some nice things. I got a couple of new skirts, new tops, some cool rings, a bunch of makeup (just from the drugstore, nothing fancy) and a set of cashmere socks that were absurdly expensive and impractical but feel amazing on my feets. Oh, and new boots. I'm going to take the time to get dressed in the morning before I get into my office, instead of just going down there in my pajamas and sitting there all day like a slob, which makes me feel awful. 

 

I also dyed my hair super blonde, and I love it and keep pushing it further to white, which is kind of ridiculous but I don't care.

Go on exotic vacations!

I am still hoping to go to the Keys in December to get my diving certification, but if I can't save enough money I might push it to January. Hopefully not. 

 

Fuck whoever you feel like!

hahahahahaha maybe not this one. I am going to turn 52 exactly at the end of this challenge and I have the sex drive of a houseplant. 

 

I'll just tease people endlessly then go home and wear my cashmere socks. SO SATISFYING.

 

OTHER VAGUELY IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR CONDONED DURING THIS CHALLENGE: 

 

- eating ice cream

- eating all my meals off paper plates to avoid dishes 

- calling/texting friends to discuss episodes of HGTV or equally pointless things

- the "papyrus" font

- sleeping in on weekdays (occasionally)

- "wasting" discretionary income on working out with my trainer, or on guitar lessons, without guilt

- doing street art photography

- ALL THE GLITTER

- refusing to watch tv news unless I feel like it, which is never

 

And probably other shit I'll think of later.

I guess I’m here for the bourbon instead.

Also, there needs to be a hair pic.

 

I’ll do a hair pic when I get home, I’m at my moms this weekend. If anything interesting pops up for that other goal, I’ll DM you the details with the names changed to protect the not very innocent.

My benedryl hasn't kicked in yet, so I'm just adding that my nutrition plan I'm about to start is very paleo, carnivore-heavy, and when I am doing well on that... strange things happen to my body chemistry. You know that expression, "fight or flight"? I very rapidly switch over to "fight or fuck". I'm legitimately in a state where I want to either murder people or screw them. (Occasionally, both.) I go about sixteen digits up the assertiveness scale, and shit gets interesting. 

 

I am pleased to announce that I have eaten ice cream today, and it was amazingly delicious. Dulce de leche hagen-daaz. 10/10, would eat again.

 

I also had a good moment today in that I am trying to get better at asking for help when I need it, instead of all Lone Gunslingering everything, and today while I was at the grocery store I had a bit of a panic attack because my throat was a bit sore, and I went straight to ohmyfuckinggodIhavecovidandIbroughtittomymom four-alarm, heart racing terror, so instead of just sitting in my car crying while I freaked out and the ice cream melted, I texted my old roommate and the Mantis asking for help. The Mantis called me back immediately and talked me down, and I was able to pull out of the tailspin and go on with my day (and save the ice cream). I think if I hadn't asked for the assist it would have gone on for far longer.

Additions to the fun adult list, because why not 

 

- I want to learn bo staff. I tell myself it’s because it’s great upper body training and agility, but actually it’s just because it looks bad ass. 

 

- I’m getting my horoscope read by a friend’s mom who is super into that. I don’t actually believe in such things but R and her mom are awesome and it will be fun

 

- it’s open season on bad puns

 

- SPANISH SOAP OPERAS

Remember when you were a kid - especially when you were around 15-16-ish - and being an adult seemed like something you absolutely could not wait to be?

Yeah, I know. 

 

Adulthood sounded GREAT. 

 

No testing or homework or grades!

 

Champagne toasts every night!

 

Have an awesome wardrobe!

 

Wear whatever you want -  without getting yelled at by your dad!

 

Eat dessert every day if you want to!

 

Go on exotic vacations!

 

Fuck whoever you feel like!*

 

As it happens, adulthood seems to have become one ongoing ass-chap of petty irritants, like arguing with contractors, being chided about cholesterol, doing your taxes, being forced to watch CNN when you don't want to by well meaning relatives, variable interest rates (never in your favor, either) and other sand in the underpants of my life. 

 

SO BORING. 

 

Where are my privileges? My dream lifestyle? My devoted cadre of friends, willing to jet around the world at a moment's notice? My harem of side bitches, hanging on my every witticism? 

 

Really, why would anyone WANT to be an adult?

 

IT'S TIME TO RECLAIM ADULTHOOD FOR THE FUN PEOPLE

I am actually working on my nutrition for this six-week period, which is so boring that I want to drill out my own eyes, so I wasn't going to challenge. But I would miss everybody and I look terrible in a hair shirt, so as an antidote I'm going to do a challenge where I try to embrace all my OTHER vices to distract myself from protein macros and net carbs and other such dull things, as long as said vices don't make me fat.

Fat-er. Whatever.

I made a list of all the things that made adulthood seem so alluring to my 15-year-old self, and I will attempt to indulge as many of them as I can without the ATF getting involved. 

 

Here we go!

 

Champagne Toast:

 

I love champagne, more for what it seems to signify than what it is, so I will keep those mini-bottles of champagne in my fridge at all times during the challenge and drink them whenever I feel moved to do so. (But responsibly, of course. I'm an adult, not an idiot.)

 

I don't know why, but drinking an "adult" thing like bourbon has always seemed incredibly sophisticated to me. (Deffy, Tank, and Sloth will now know where this challenge sprang from). I will try one or two types of bourbon per week for the length of the challenge until I find one I like. Or maybe I find out that I don't like bourbon and I decide to never drink it again. That's fine too!

Fabulous wardrobe:

My job seems to be working out and I did two races in the last three weeks, and after each one I got a bonus, so instead of being "responsible" aka boring, I blew half the bonus money on some new threads and an assload of jewelry, so I get to dress in some nice things. I got a couple of new skirts, new tops, some cool rings, a bunch of makeup (just from the drugstore, nothing fancy) and a set of cashmere socks that were absurdly expensive and impractical but feel amazing on my feets. Oh, and new boots. I'm going to take the time to get dressed in the morning before I get into my office, instead of just going down there in my pajamas and sitting there all day like a slob, which makes me feel awful. 

 

I also dyed my hair super blonde, and I love it and keep pushing it further to white, which is kind of ridiculous but I don't care.

I am still hoping to go to the Keys in December to get my diving certification, but if I can't save enough money I might push it to January. Hopefully not. 

 

Fuck whoever you feel like!

hahahahahaha maybe not this one. I am going to turn 52 exactly at the end of this challenge and I have the sex drive of a houseplant. 

 

I'll just tease people endlessly then go home and wear my cashmere socks. SO SATISFYING.

 

OTHER VAGUELY IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR CONDONED DURING THIS CHALLENGE: 

 

- eating ice cream

- eating all my meals off paper plates to avoid dishes 

- calling/texting friends to discuss episodes of HGTV or equally pointless things

- the "papyrus" font

- sleeping in on weekdays (occasionally)

- "wasting" discretionary income on working out with my trainer, or on guitar lessons, without guilt

- doing street art photography

- ALL THE GLITTER

- refusing to watch tv news unless I feel like it, which is never

 

And probably other shit I'll think of later.

I’ll do a hair pic when I get home, I’m at my moms this weekend. If anything interesting pops up for that other goal, I’ll DM you the details with the names changed to protect the not very innocent. 

 

Wondering how to be on this list too, or maybe on the list where the names aren't changed, works either way!
