Remember when you were a kid and all you wanted to do was grow up and be an adult? Kind of like Tom Hanks in Big. And then you do grow up…and it’s really not all it’s cracked up to be…
What a bummer!
Adulting is full of responsibility, worry, drama, and not a whole lot of fun.
And these tweets nail it.
1. Good luck with that.
Adulting is balancing your job + money, friend/relationships and your personal time with yourself, paying your credit card on time all while keeping your emotions in tact. #Adulting

5. That’s not a good sign.
Hot-desking: Having decided that millennials will never own homes. Let's make sure they can't even have their own spaces at work.

8. This is lame.
When you become a grown up, people stop asking you what your favourite dinosaur is.
They don't even care.

9. Goes by pretty fast.
adult friendship is lots of cancelled plans and missed calls and missed phone dates and then really intense quick catch ups with life changing news that we laugh about and then text right after "I love you"

11. This day needs to end.
Cooked a stir fry. It was awful. Binned.
Baked garlic bread to avoid starving. Forgot about it. Burnt.
Boiled some eggs for snack tomorrow. Didn’t realise eggs were cracked. Disaster.
Gave up and went to bed. Picked up water bottle. Spilt all over sheets and crotch.
