How to instantly adult.

Let's be honest as I'm the last of the lost boys: I don't adult. I suck at adulting and I'm probably never going to learn.
-And I don't think there's someone that actually knows; I mean: there's not such a thing as 'adulting'-

But sometimes -sometimes everyday- we need to practice the appreciation of the little things that make us feel more put together even when everything else is collapsing.

So yeah, here are five things that make me feel like a totally put together functional adult even when I want to go crying to the corner of the room; or eat pringles straight from the can all night long.

There's nothing that gives me a confidence boost like black high heels, even if I'm just wearing leggings and a basic dress, putting on some black heels instantly make me go 'omg, I this super functional business woman and I got this shit handled' and after that I just order pizza and roll in my couch, with my shoes on.

2. Having my surfaces clean.
Ok, I'm sure this works with everyone and having my bed made has a similar feel. But after the worst day ever if I come home to a clean, empty desk where I can see my tiny cactus friend saying Hi!, clean shelves and a clean bathroom sink where I can just love the marble, I'm going to feel put together, and I love it.

3. Switching from coke to water.
Everything I consciously change my drink from coke or sprite to water I instantly go like 'LOOK AT ME, I'M SUCH AN ADULT, MAKING HEATHLY CHOICES', even if the minutes after I regret it and start needing my daily sugar.

4. Getting into a bed with good quality bedding. 
No, it doesn't need to be 800 thread count Egyptian cotton or something actually fancy. But getting nice cotton bedding that actually matches is probably one of the biggest satisfactions on earth. Is just nice and definitely if your bed is put together, so are you. 

5. Grabbing coffee by myself
Go to the nearest coffee shop (Starbucks will work) and get yourself a espresso or other adult beverage.
Maybe take a nice book and read it. Alone
Maybe just walk away with your to-go drink and curse over the fact it is probably too hot.

There's something weird and adult-ish about being all alone reading and enjoying some nice coffee. You can do it under a tree if the weather helps, but the idea of being in my little piece of earth gives me the extra energy boost I need to overcome a difficult situation. And makes me feel way cooler.

What makes you feel instantly grown up and like a responsible adult?
Any tips on this subject?

hey! Wake!

Everyone seems to be all about minimalism, and decluttering and all I can think of is how much I want some Demonia platform boots. 
I guess there must be something about getting rid of things that is so magic and life-changing.
 I'm thinking about giving it a try; maybe, after that pair of boots.

Welcome home, witches.

It's been a while since my last attempt on blogging, the previous ones kind of melted, so here I am, I'm trying -so here I am, are you ready?- *ignore this obnoxious Blink 182 reference, please* and feel free to wander around this page that I have created to share everything.

I'm the kind of person who likes to give everything a try but never sticks to anything, I tried being emo, I tried being sporty, nerdy, whatever when I was in high school. When I was little I was always trying to be a cartoon character, thing my relatives always found funny. 

I'm 20 years old now, and since I left high school I have been in a completely absurd journey to try to figure myself out, no success at all. Now, together with a severe anxiety and fighting my depression issues, I have decided that if I can't figure myself out is probably because there's nothing to understand. I am from a generation that is supposed to have thing done early and to have their entire lives figured out, because we are the millennials and we can do anything if we try hard enough. Trying hard happens to be the problem, when you can't find motivation in anything. 

So, sometimes you have to create yourself from scratch, and that's what I try to do every day, baby steps. 

So I sold my soul, became a redhead and started this blog. Why the title? In fact, it was originally a typo, but I ended up loving it. And this me, I am a Drama Queen, I over react, I over think and this are my thoughts: Love yourself no matter what, and don't forget that is does not matter how much you love the rest, there are times when you have to put yourself first, don't try to eat veggies if you don't like them (I wasted so much time and effort trying to swallow lettuce), and life is too short to wear boring clothes, so don't bother with the jeans and sweater combo if you want to wear a pink striped dress.
