There comes a time in every person’s life when they realise that they’re not 21 anymore. Especially after you cross 25, you’ll notice little things that begin to change. For example, I HATE wrinkled bedsheets. Did I care about them when I was 21? No. And now, I often find myself ironing my bed. Call me crazy, I don’t care.
Similarly, many people online have been revealing “uncle/auntie” or ‘old people’ habits that they have developed after crossing 25 years of age.
Hey 25+ Twitter. What ‘auntie/uncle tendencies’ do you have now that you’re old? 🤔

This is probably the most relatable reaction – saying no to spontaneity!
If you don’t tell me 2 to 3 business days ahead of time that you want to hang out I’m not coming. I don’t do day of hanging out

My body hurts in places I didn’t even know existed.
I make this face before I stand up. Or if the fires I ate earlier triggered my indigestion pic.twitter.com/9EMfuL00g1

Please don’t talk to me in the morning. Please.
Loud noise irritates me, I can’t eat too much sugar, I get excited for new appliances.

Wearing slippers. Having an actual preference for a certain kind of saltine crackers. Getting upset about people driving too fast in residential areas. Having a specific place I put my glasses at bedtime.

Standing with my arms folded, listening to all sorts of soul/R&B music new and old but play the same trap songs from 10 years ago on repeat, and choosing solitude and silence over being around a bunch of people.

You’ll never find me awake after 10 PM.
Going to bed early!!! By 9pm I’m already yawning! It’s embarrassing!

Forget buying new shoes, home decor is the new cool!
Watching HGTV for interior design inspiration because now my focus has shifted to having a nice, yet comfortable living space vs. the flyest clothes and handbags.
