The little things you take for granted once you move out...
So, last night, the light bulbs in my room burnt out. Had no light bulbs at home. So, I told myself, "On the way home, I'll stop at the local grocery store to pick some up!"
Cue me standing in the grocery store, in the aisle with the light bulbs, realizing that they come in different wattages, and I have no clue what actually works in ceiling lamps. I totally didn't think about looking at the burnt-out bulbs beforehand.
I was so embarrassed when I asked the lady checking me out, "so I have never replaced light bulbs before, what wattage should I use for ceiling lights??" Thankfully I'd guessed right at 60W.
I've been living on my own for seven months now, and it still astounds me, what little things I can take for granted. Like never having to replace light bulbs. My parents always bought the bulbs and replaced them themselves. Funny, huh. And even when I got home I couldn't actually replace them, as I'm too short to reach the bulbs... thankfully my (taller) roommate was in.
Granted, not paying bills will always be the #1 thing I miss about living at home. Our electric bill was $90 this month. Hate summer, so so much. >>;;
Have I scared all the little kids on PC yet? XD
