Remember when you were a kid and you couldn’t wait to be all grown up?
Like me, you probably thought it would be a never-ending party full of fun and games. And then…you realize it’s nothing like that at all and reality sets in. Being an adult can be a real drag, huh?
These tweets about adultiing should make you laugh…and maybe cry just a little bit.
1. What am I even doing here?
No one warned me that being an adult was mostly just hurrying up to get somewhere you don't want to go in the first place.

2. What’s the point of this?
Apparently being an adult means working all day and still not getting to buy what I want.

6. The trifecta.
Being an adult is basically taxes, searching for a decent sofa and being generally disappointed.

7. Now I get it…
Being an adult is just finally getting why your mom was upset about stuff when you were a kid.

8. Knickknacks for days.

10. A truthful haiku.
A haiku about being an adult:
I am so tired
Where did all my money go
My back is hurting

11. Let’s see where this one came from…
Being an adult is literally declining calls from numbers you don’t know, then googling the number five seconds later

12. Ehhhh, it is what it is.
Being an adult is mostly just becoming keenly aware of exactly how you became fucked up in each specific way, but also resigning yourself to not fixing anything

13. This is lame.
Not a single person asked me how fast I could run in my new shoes today. Being an adult fucking sucks
— Jason (@nxthingjason) October 7, 2019
14. Sometimes even 8:30.
When I was a kid I thought being an adult meant staying up as late as I wanted. Like 11 or midnight.
Turns out it’s closer to 9.

15. All the good stuff.
being an adult means getting excited about:
-owning a dyson
-using towels straight out of the dryer
-clearing your email inbox
-getting into bed by 9pm
