Hello, fellow millennials! At this point, even though many people do not realize it, you are a true adult. You have bills to pay, homes to buy, and small children to wrangle. You have day jobs and pains in your back, and your vision is starting to decline. You are officially old– being a millennial means being an adult. So, it's only natural that, in the midst of the Dumpster fire that is the year 2018 and our impending adult doom, we want to look back at the golden days.
We, as millennials, know that the '90s were a cherished time. Millennials are not the spoiled, entitled generation that people complain about. Instead, we are overworked and underpaid adults with no nest egg or stability to speak of. It comforts us to look back at our past, and revel in the scrunchies and the Nickelodeon and the graphic tees of our youth. Sue us!
It's no secret that the real world sucks.At this point, we millennials are truly entrenched in it. We need a laugh, and these 29 tweets will provide us with just that.

Sliding into adulthood

Getting olderI am thrilled beyond belief that '90s trends are back and we can cosplay as our past selves, but I want it to stay that way. The '00s were hideous and I'd rather not revisit those times.
Real '90s kidsThat's sort of true, except I consider myself a '90s kid (born in '89). I definitely remember going to see The Lion King in theaters and then my mom taking us to Toys 'R' Us to pick out one toy, so I do remember the '90s.

Remember Netflix before streaming? When you could only pick up to 3 DVDs at a time. https://t.co/OkvzviRUXo— 90s Kid (@90s Kid)1483402574.0
Self-obsessed narcissistsSelfies are three inches long at most. Those oil paintings were eight feet tall, at least.

Oregon TrailThe Oregon Trail was treacherous, but it's clearly not as treacherous as all of politics today. If only our only worry was dying of dysentery.
We get it!

Obsessed with foodThe preoccupation with millennials "killing" industries or "obsessing" over certain things is a bogus thought. We're trying to live our life! Let us be.
Becoming an adult
Funny how when I was a kid all I wanted was to be an adult, but now that I'm grown up all I want to do is lay face down on the carpet— mike ginn (@mike ginn)1424671356.0

Childhood vs. adulthood
Childhood: I can be anything I want to be when I grow up! Adulthood: Please someone just find me a job that doesn't make me wish for death.— The Volatile Mermaid (@The Volatile Mermaid)1473887488.0

39 yearsAh, the good old days of the Internet when you had to boot up AOL and then take a jog around the block before it was ready to use.
Serial killersOf course, we don't open the door when we're not expecting anybody! Our parents taught us never to do this. Probably because so many people in the '70s got murdered by serial killers.
