How is your day going?
One of the things I was thinking about today were behavior changes that are basically adulting.
Like sunblock. I feel like it’s only been the last 10 years or so that “for fuck’s sake, wear sunblock, seriously, wear it all the time” has become a thing.
Growing up, my parents would make me wear it for like a day at Six Flags or if we were going to a big outdoor family party at a park, but that was it. Running around all day outside with the cousins? Nope. Going to the pool up the street for a few hours? Nope. Nah, it’s fine since you’re not out all day.
High school me? Eh I’d prefer not to get sunburned because they’re a little painful, but oh well if it’s red or whatever. It will heal quickly.
College me? FUCK YEAH GIMME THAT SUN I GOT ACNE TO KILL.
Late 20s me? Oh huh I need to not burn. And wear sunblock more regularly.
Mid/late 30s me? Oh god yes give it to me, I need that spf 50+ for my face. Every day. I neeeeeed it. I need one of those European brands that has higher safety standards than the FDA, too, for ingredients.
Anything like that for you?
