That’s a title for the challenge on Redecor: a guy got himself a washing machine and he feels that makes him an adult.
I have washing machine and even my own flat for quite a few years already and yet I only feel now that I am really ‘adulting’. My mum can’t help me with anything any more. And don’t get me wrong, I have a history of my own struggles and traumas that I had to deal with and my mum can’t really offer much of practical help anyway as she doesn’t understand a lot of things, and yet, she used to hover around me when I had problems and it used to give me strange sense of safety.
Now that has been taken away and it gives me the feeling that I’m finally properly adulting. I’m not sure I like it that much but no one gives me any choice in here. I’m all by myself, how am I going to cope?
