Sooner or later, everyone falls for the trick of growing up.
As a child, you think that being a grown-up is going to be the best thing ever. You make your own money, you can stay up as late as you want, and you can buy ice cream whenever you want! But once you get a bit older, you realize that your childhood assumptions were a little bit off.
Sure, you make money, but it goes straight to paying the bills. You can stay up super late, but you'll regret it in the morning. And that ice cream you can buy whenever you want? It might make you feel bloated and guilt, or grumpy.
All in all, adulthood is pretty stinking hard. Only, you don't realize that until you become an adult. It's a cruel system. At least we can joke about it, though!
If you're feeling a little overwhelmed by adulthood, I'm here for you.And while I can't exactly make it better, I can share with you some funny tweets that happen to perfectly sum up what it means to be a grown-up. Maybe some ice cream would help?
I just did this.I remember when I used to be so excited every time the phone rang. Now I dread every single conversation on the phone. I also used to look forward to getting mail, until it was all junk and bills.
My least favorite rom-com!
Adulthood is like romantic comedy, except there's no romance and it's just us laughing at our own lives. #adulting— HerHighness ✨ (@HerHighness ✨)1540457275.0

I don't want to wear pants.OK, maybe you can make me wear pants, but you can't make me stand up! I'm an adult, so if I want to spend three hours lying on the kitchen floor and freaking out about my life, I'm going to do it!
Accurate.There's also plenty of "ICAT." Which is code for "I can't afford that?"

Maybe no one will notice.
This is pretty much what being an adult is like most days. Stuck, but pretend everything is fine. https://t.co/6cGEs7RUBe— Skinartia (@Skinartia)1455902880.0

Call me when it's $50.When I was in the third grade, I found a $20 bill on the sidewalk and thought I was basically the Queen. Now? I don't even know if I'd pick it up. (Just kidding just kidding, of course, I would I am so poor.)

Good luck talking sense into yourself.

I can't handle this.
I'm an adult, and I can eat whatever I want whenever I want, and I wish someone would take this power from me.— Mike Primavera (@Mike Primavera)1400350336.0
It all makes sense now.On the other hand, you could order a pizza!

Adult friendship is saying “let me call you back” hanging up and calling back 3-4 days later and no one takes it personal.— Too Sassy (@Too Sassy)1515679914.0
This is not a good video game.You have no idea what any of the buttons do, everyone else seems to have mastered everything, and you never have enough money to buy the loot you want.
True mark of adulthood: instead of your parents scheduling your doctor's appointments, you just avoid going to the doctor & hope u don't die— Kevin Farzad (@Kevin Farzad)1409161776.0
