When you're a kid, growing up seems like one of the best things ever. You can buy ice cream whenever you want! You have your very own money! You can stay up late and watch TV until the wee hours of the morning and not get in trouble!
But as you get older, the harsh truths behind those "benefits" start to make themselves know. Yes, you can buy ice cream whenever you want...but it might mean an extra visit to the gym (or an extra pound on your increasingly achy body). You have your very own money...but most of it goes toward paying bills. You can stay up late and watch TV until 2 am...but you will definitely regret it.
While there are definitely enjoyable aspects of growing up, you may start to wonder whether the pros truly outweigh the cons. If you do, these tweets are for you.

adulthood mainly includes looking at your many responsibilities and saying to yourself "damn I should do that" and not doing that— Amber Keith (@Amber Keith)1514653775.0

It can go either way.
So far, being an adult is basically winging every aspect of your life and people either hating you for it or being proud of you.— Juanted House🕸🎃🏚 (@Juanted House🕸🎃🏚)1514657503.0

Stop spying on me.
my morning routine includes 20 minutes of staring at the ceiling thinking about how tired I am and debating if I really need to live today— Too Sassy (@Too Sassy)1537145115.0
It's actually kind of embarrassing.I remember thinking this was so weird when I was little. Now I can't help myself. It makes me feel alive. But also slightly more dead.

This is some next-level cookery.
Being an adult means having the patience to put your pizza rolls in the oven instead of just using the microwave. https://t.co/zpIMEOAqxo— Spooky CJ (@Spooky CJ)1513863424.0
Such a good excuse, though.No one can argue with that. It's the perfect "get out of social event free" card.
Why is this so true?
One of the weirder things about being an adult is having a favorite stovetop burner, yet nobody talks about it. https://t.co/M6QWXJ9coy— Andrew Armstrong (@Andrew Armstrong)1543350768.0
