Being an adult comes with a lot of freedoms, but also a lot of horrible nonsense and why does my back hurt all the time?
These are the things no one warns you about when they ask you what you wanna be when you “grow up.”
15. Forget about it
Hahahaha wait what was I laughing at just now?
Not to brag or anything but, I can forget what I'm doing while I'm doing it.

14. Break it down
Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Sometimes you just need to sit next to the big mountain of laundry and eat a bowl of shredded cheese while you cry because every adult deserves an emotional breakdown.

13. Apply a coat
Yep, that’s me in a nutshell. Ooo, maybe I could hide in a nutshell?
What society tells me I should be: A full-functional adult
What I actually am: A pile of coping strategies in a trench coat

12. The aging game
A while back I stretched wrong in the morning and couldn’t walk right for like a week.
Me as a kid: [Falls 10 feet from the monkey bars] I'M OK
Me now: I tried to scoop ice cream that was just a little too frozen and I dislocated my shoulder.

11. Worst of both worlds
HOW OLD AM I? MAKE UP YOUR MIND, BODY! YOUR BODY MIND!
It's been said before, but the absolute injustice of having acne and greying hair.

10. Fork you
It’s gonna be a long, hungry evening.
Adulting is soup and I'm a fork.

9. Pain and gain
Don’t be a barbarian, pour some milk on those things.

8. Haves and have nots
You’ve got it, but you know you’re really just borrowing it from someone else for a minute.
Adulting is having money and still not having money at the same time, feel me homes.

7. Just a number
Ya’ll need to start looking at the bigger picture on these things.
It's probably my age that tricks people into thinking I'm an adult.

6. Broken record
And then you do it all again next week!
Got paid yesterday. Paid my bills & outstanding debts. Broke again within an hour. Amazing! Adulting is just amazing!

5. Pile on
It’s a surface level issue, but it still runs deep.
In my experience, adulthood is mostly piling stuff up on surfaces and then eventually having to clean off those surfaces

4. Bath time
When you need some kind of new thrill.

3. Call the doctor
Does this mean I need to talk to a human and admit how I’m living my life?
Me: "Adulting is so easy, I've got this"

2. Click, click, boom
“Hello, this is God. We’ve been trying to reach you about your body’s extended warranty…”
how come after like age 26 your body starts to make clicking sounds when you stretch… is that the warranty expiring…

1. Sock it to me
You mean I gotta bend all the way down?
Here’s a little song about getting older it’s called “It Hurts to Put Socks On” and a one and a two

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go sort my various pills.
What’s the strangest thing about getting older in your opinion?
