I feel like I’m a pretty capable person. I figure things out quickly and I like being independent. However, there are plenty of things that I haven’t figured out yet. Things that only adults should know how to do. I guess I’m an adult now. Technically I’ve been an adult for 6 years now. Barf.
Throughout my years, I have had parents who’ve helped me with everything. I don’t usually ask for their help, but it’s gotten to the point where it just goes without saying that they’ll set up my flight info, or make sure my bank account is okay. Now that I’m married, they don’t have to do that much stuff for me. Well, they still take care of a lot of things for me, but not as much.
In high school I remembered having friends who had to pay for their cell phone bill. That always freaked me out. I wouldn’t have known what to do with a bill if it was handed to me. I still don’t.
Now my husband takes care of a lot of stuff at work, so I don’t even get to see how it’s done. I know bills involve sending money. THAT MUCH I KNOW. If you haven’t guessed by now, this is the blog where you find out how truly retarded I am. The Game of Life even scares me a little bit. Having to deal with school loans and buying a house causes too much anxiety for what should be a fun-filled game.
I think I know how insurance works, but whenever I go to the doctor they ask me a million( yes, a million) questions about what insurance I have and did I know that my insurance covers only this much, and stuff like that. So complicated!
I literally have no idea what the words mortgage and equity mean.
Taxes also seem scary. People keep telling me that I should be filing a blank tax return even if I don’t work. That kind of freaks me out because first of all, where do I get a tax return? Second of all, where do I file it? From now on I’ll just pretend I’m interested when people tell me things like this and then, hopefully, erase all knowledge of it.
