Having countless responsibilities is the best, isn’t it?
Nope! As kids, we invested so many years wishing that we could be grownups that it’s virtually amusing to look back at those periods in an existence-is-futile, how-did-I-get-here sort of way.
Whether you’re a 20 -something like me who’s simply been dropped into adulthood against her will or a seasoned veteran in the real person district, you know the struggle. Adulting is the worst, and here’s why.
1. The second paycheck of the month magically turns into hire right before your eyes.
2. Investing more than$ 6 on anything packs you with a deep appreciation of existential dread.
3. You have to live in a city for design, but the only apartment you can render isn’t actually big enough to house a real human being.
4. Halloween gets creepier and less appropriate every year because adulthood is where fun goes to die.
5. The paroles “health insurance” strike fear into your heart.
6. You can’t just go to the playground and wait out a crisis because you’re “too old” and “you need to go home, or I’m calling the cops.”
7. Your car is out to got to get at all times.
8. Pretending to be sick and seeing your mama play along to forestall your responsibilities for the working day is no longer an option.
9. Weekends are less about having fun and more about preparations for the labour week onward in a never-ending cycles/second because nothing amber can stay.
10. Grocery shopping is a silent killer.
11. Social media starts to feel more like this by the second.
12. You have to constitute your own appointments.
13. Niceties are shed to the wind because all anyone really cares about is when you’re getting married and having offsprings when you can’t even handle compensating your own telephone invoice yet.
14. Speaking of telephone bills, gross.
16. You have to construct your own nutrient but all it is usually have on hand is balsamic vinegar, old-time bread, and donuts.
17. You start realizing that your mothers were right…about everything.
18. “No, brew does not weigh as a banquet, ” is something that you and your depressing bank account have to hear about 30 times a month.
19. Pinterest is quick to remind you that most of your goals are unattainable.
20. You figure out who’s always going to be there for you no matter what, like student loans.
Hey, compensating proposals might be the worst, but at least we can find a false-hearted appreciation of agency in dining cheese puffs for dinner. Small-minded success, friends. Small-time victories.
Oh, and wine is a thing that exists. We’re going to be okay.
