When I was a kid, I thought being an adult was gonna be all late bedtimes and ice cream for breakfast (or literally whenever I wanted).
Then you grow up and realize being an adult actually kind of sucks. The bills, the constant exhaustion, always wondering what you’re gonna have for dinner. Actually, it doesn’t kind of suck. It sucks HARD.
Seriously, it’s the worst, and here are 12 tweets that sum up why:
1. Also: turned my head, stood up too quickly…
Injuries as a kid:
fouled on a layup
fell off trampoline
pulled muscle running
Injuries as an adult:
sat too long

2. Just thinking about it makes me tired
Adulthood is trying each of the same six passwords that you use for everything and complaining that you're tired.

3. Why not both?
My life is 50% wondering if it's too late to drink coffee and 50% wondering if it's too early to drink alcohol.

4. Or earlier, if possible
When I was a kid, I never would have guessed that being an adult and going to bed “whenever I want” would mean 930pm.

5. More like 7 to 14 years

6. Never answer the phone
Apparently being an adult means googling phone numbers that call you rather than answering them.

7. It’s not just you
Exciting perks of adulthood:
1. Busy! Busy all the time! What are you even doing? You don't know!
2. Very tired.
3. Some kinda stomach ache???
4. Definitely sad about something.
5. Bills! Bills all the time! What are you even paying for? You don't know!

9. Ugh, inflation
10. My aching back
My favorite childhood memory is my back not hurting

11. Every night
When parents say to kids "go to ur room & think about what you've done" it's really good practice for what you'll do every night as an adult

adulthood is emailing "sorry for the delayed response!" back and forth until one of you dies

Can we please just go to bed yet?!
