It’s Finally Friday!!!

My parents were awesome and so is this tumblr.

Only in New York.

Could you live off the kindness of strangers??

Feeling like a failure??? Take a look at this:

10 places every American should see. How many have you been to??

Going on a road trip? The only app you’ll need.

All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten.

Desperate for a job? Check out these creative job search methods. My personal fave is #6!

2 questions everyone should ask themselves.

This asshole’s definitely Father of The Year material.

Apparently multitasking is BAD.

Why can’t camera straps be cute AND functional??

The next 10 years will define the next 10,000.

I’m obsessed with this!

You should be too! Get involved here and here.

And now for some giggles:

Poor white guys.

Shit nobody says.

How diets work.

The more colorful the thing the better it is for you!

Have a great weekend kids!

P.S. (I started an internship this week. That’s right folks! Between the two jobs and the blog I felt like I had too much free time so I decided to become a 30 year old intern! All jokes aside, due to the extremely limited free time I now have, Adventures In Adulthood will be going to a Wednesday and Friday publishing schedule. Enjoy!)

Lay off!!

Why is it after a break-up, embarrassment, or failure we feel the need to torture ourselves with all the moments we could have done differently in order to have achieved a more favorable outcome?

We roll these little tidbits around in our head and allow them to poke holes in our self-esteem.

“You IDIOT! I can’t believe you said/did that!! WHAT is wrong with you?!?

Relationships ends, there will always be moments when you colossally put your foot in it, EVERYONE falls down.

It is not solely your fault, nor is it solely anyone else’s.

Simple but true.

Sometimes really good shit.

Sometimes really foul shit.

But it all happens for a reason.

You may not see that reason for days, weeks, or years down the road.

But one day you’ll remember that mortifying, shame inducing moment and realize – SHIT!

If that hadn’t happened neither would A which lead to B which brought you to today and the amazingly fabulous person you are.

So go easy on yourself girl!

Even if your heart’s broken, you royally fucked up at work, or you walked around all day with your skirt tucked into your tights – it’s NOT the end of the world.

Take it from Annie 🙂
