Adulting Memes For Millennials In the Struggle

Being an adult sounded great when I was like, thirteen. I had it all figured out: My best friend Jane and I would move into her uncle’s cottage in England. He’s a big-time director and owned Beatrix Potter’s house. It was going to be amazing. Driving old range rovers around the estate, listening to the Cure and the Clash, and eating (and drinking) like queens. Judging by the fact that I’m living in a tenement here in Brooklyn, and she’s living with her mother-in-law in New Jersey, things haven’t gone according to plan. 

The truth is, all that maturity you envision as a kid, and all the fun freedom – it’s non-existent, or at the very least clouded by responsibility and impostor syndrome. While we can eat cake whenever we want, we also have the sneaking suspicion it’s not good for us and we’re going to pay for it on the scale. Those houses we were going to buy? Well, that’s probably never going to happen. Adulting is a lot to handle, and balancing all our little tasks can feel much more overwhelming than it should. For anyone who can relate to these feelings, we’re here with some memes to remind you that you’re definitely, definitely not alone.
