When we’re kids, it seems that all we want to do is grow up right away. We want all that “freedom” adults have—unlimited snacks, virtually no bedtime, and tons of money. But, once we hit that ripe old age when we begin adulthood, we realize it’s all downhill for us.
I’m unsure why everyone glorified growing up when honestly, it’s just one big ride on the struggle bus. We’re exhausted, broke, and truly trying just to get by. In all reality, adulthood is like a giant dumpster fire that you keep trying to put out, but with gasoline. These Twitterati get it.
I'm an adult, and I can eat whatever I want whenever I want, and I wish someone would take this power from me.

Being an adult means not having your bed shoved into the corner of your room and I can't deal with that.

Adult friendship is saying “let me call you back” hanging up and calling back 3-4 days later and no one takes it personal.
