We’re just going to come right out and say it...adulting is HARD. Remember when we were kids and absolutely couldn't wait to grow up, make our own rules, and do whatever we wanted… Now that we’re here, does anyone else feel like it isn't quite as fun as you thought it would be? Because SAME.
Honestly, we feel like we could do without some of the harder adult responsibilities. Taxes? Yuck. Limited vacation days? We’re over it. Never-ending laundry piles? Ugh. And no one told us we’d have to cook three meals a day to keep ourselves (and, in some cases, the other members of our families) alive every single day for the rest of time!
Nonetheless, growing up is part of life and there are also some pretty cool things about #adulting. There are lots of things we get to do as adults that kids never get to enjoy. Like, having the occasional adult beverage, buying things just because we like them and want them (because we make our own money!), and even eating dessert before dinner just because we feel like it. We’ve even eaten ice cream instead of dinner a few times, which our 12 year olds selves would be pretty jealous about. We guess being an adult isn’t really so bad. When we stop and think about it, it’s actually pretty cool, right?
