Adulting is hard.
When you’re growing up nobody tells you that, as an adult, every day you have to make a choice between taking care of your mind, your soul, your body, and your bank account.
And most days you fail at three out of four.
Want a healthy work-life balance? Then no money for you. Want to cook a healthy dinner tonight? Then no time to go to the gym? Want to have children and still achieve your personal goals? Get the heck out of here with that nonsense!
While kids are always in a rush to grow up, adults know the truth: Being an adult…kind of sucks.
How hard is adulting? Let us count the ways.
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.

Apparently being an adult means working all day and still not getting to buy what I want.

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

Being an adult is just finally getting why your mom was upset about stuff when you were a kid.

Part of being an adult is discovering “life hacks” that are just things your parents told you to do as a kid
“If I empty the dishwasher when it’s done, I can just put my dirty dishes in there as soon as I’m finished with them, and then just run in when it gets full! Im a genius”

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