  1. I will never be an adult. I kill off my plants no matter how much I think they will get watered, I donโ€™t think about my bananas until they are black, I am happy I just have to push a button to do taxes because the government would put me in jail for faulty taxes otherwise. I just lazy around, refuse to do the dishes, read comic books and manga all day (I donโ€™t even work but thatโ€™s because Iโ€™m mentally ill). I guess the only adult points I have are the kids, my car and my love for discussing politics. However I mostly discuss politics with homophobic racists and I am not sure it counts when you do it to provoke. ๐Ÿค” Yeah, I donโ€™t feel like an adult. As you I donโ€™t really dress one either. I am a bit of a tomboy so hoodie and jeans and sneakers is my choice. Very unadult. But what does it matter, adults are awfully boring. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. Lolol! Well, I do remember to water the plants… From now and then xP

      You have kids? Oo I didn’t know about that! Well, that seems adult for me xD

      How you can take enjoyment from discussing with homophobic racists beats me! Those kind of people just push all my buttons! xD

      Well, yeah I think that too xD I mean, great for them but I wouldn’t have the patience to be a full-fledged adult and act properly all the time xD

      1. Nah, I am pretty much on the same level as my kids; playing video games (with them often), eat candy on saturdays and watch superhero movies while swoon over spiderman (my daughter. She loves spiderman).

        I enjoy it because I am smarter than them. ๐Ÿ˜Ž They annoy me too and I do stop if I feel like I can’t get out of it or I just get tired but most of the times I have pretty valid and good argument to shut them up. I have worked in customer service for a very long time so I know how to argue clever. ๐Ÿค“

  2. This post hehe. It spoke to me on a deeeep level! ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Glad to see I am not the only (of age considered adult) who doesn’t feel like an ‘adult’. As you know I am 31 years old, and a teacher….but if those high school students saw me at home…yeah I would be fired ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Sometimes I still have to show my ID and students always think I am 20 years old.
    You know how old I was when I got my masters in education and teaching? 29!
    So trust me most people around our age don’t even know how to adult.

    I also think it is so silly. You are an adult, you just live your life differently than what is considered “mature or adult behaviour” in this type society. You need a job, marriage, house, kids, political view…blah blah. It is all bullshit. You are an adult when you have good morals and values no matter what your lifestyle is like. ๐Ÿ’–

    So I think maybe you will love this quote (I love it!);

    “I keep thinking, oh man I am so immature! How am I allowed to be an adult?”

    Then I spend time with teenagers and its like….Wow, okay, yeah…I AM an adult. I am so an adult! Look at me adulting all over the place!”

    1. Ahahahah It’s really strange to read a teacher saying this xD Normally because teachers always tend to be so… Adult?

      Oh! Don’t let me start with the ID’s!!! At the moment the age to buy alcohol and enter discos is 18 in Portugal… I have to show my ID more than 50% of the times ^.^’

      That’s really a nice way to think about it! โค Yeah you are true! Nevertheless, I think that if not for my boyfriend we would already probably got our electricity cut out or something like that ahah

      That's a great quote!!! And yeah… If I spend anytime with teens I also think "Well, yeah I'm more mature than those guys", however I felt already that way when a teen compared to the average teenager ahaha xD However, when it comes to looks there are many teens out there that seem older than me ahah


  3. Haha no adult knows how to adult. I don’t know how to do my taxes either lol I get my parents to do that for me they don’t care. They know I’m hopeless. Be proud of your introvertness, I certainly am. I always like to know what’s going on in the world and will watch the news. Then I crawl back into my hole of happiness which involves anime, dramas etc LOL

    1. Ahahah Well, I really think I’m blessed by having a cousin who does my taxes xD I just hate anything that involves a lot of burocricy!

      Oh yeah, I’m really proud of it too! ๐Ÿ˜› Regarding the news… I’ve tried but… I just can’t xD Unless it’s about gaming, Anime or something major I don’t really care xD


  4. I’m 36 on the outside but I feel 21 on the inside ๐Ÿ˜› I do consider myself to be an adult a lot of the time as I’m a manager and a father… but I like to think I’m a very fun adult who enjoys video games, anime and superhero films ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’m also a managar ahahah >.< And to be honest I'm not horrible at it! Don't ask me why though because I don't know! Nevertheless I still think they give me more credit than I deserve for since most of the times I'm like "well, this should work… Right?"

      Ahahah well yeah, but I think those are your likes, it's different from everybody and doesn't really mean you are not an adult xD For me if you have kids that you were able to make them survive for more than a week then you are a full-fledged adult! I don't really understand how parents can do it honestly! I'm always tired and I don't even have to think about that!

      1. I think most people wonder how it’s possible ๐Ÿ™‚ I did before my son was born. But once my wife and I had a child, we just found a way to make it work. It’s never easy, but we take it one step at a time and the big picture takes care of itself ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The only thing I do with any real responsibility is take care of my dogs. Everything else is a cluster of putting it off and figuring things out last minute. I don’t even cook… Our stove has been broken for almost two months and I’m cool with eating fridge food that needs no cooking. I do miss mac and cheese though… Not going to lie.

  6. Adulting is overrated. At 34, I do do the important stuff like bill paying etc, but I’ve steadfastly refused to grow up in terms of enjoying myself. As long as I don’t do anything that makes it hard me and my family to live comfortably, I intend to continue being a big kid ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Well yeah, but that doesn’t mean you are not an adult right? xD I think that everyone has their right to enjoy themselves as they want, that’s not what tells if someone is an adult or not xD I think it’s something deeper than that xD Which I fail of course

      1. LOL. Yeah, it does go deeper in some ways. I do still think that there’s a misconception that becoming an adult means giving up childish things though, so I maintain that i’m not fully fledged, and more than happy with that. Such is life though. As long as we’re all happy, it’s all good ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. There’s only one way to put it:
    “If you know how to adult… You’re probably doing it wrong.”
    Adulting is difficult!!! No one knows what they’re doing! The best that we can do is to be confident and think that we are adulting right. (haha)
    No worries Arthifis, you’re adulting just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Looool yeah, probably you are right xD Fake it until you make it eheh

      Thank very much ^.^ Although I don’t really care! I’m alive and I have a roof so I’m probably doing something right ahah

  8. I’m never growing up! What’s the point of being an adult if you can’t be childish sometimes! So even when I do adult, it’s only cause I have to. I’m still a college student though, so I’m not quite there.

  9. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything that made me think that. I just know I’m an adult bc of my age but I’m also so far from being self sufficient which is my only definition of a ” proper adult” ( or maybe I would be if I didn’t spend so much on being an Italy lolol)

    1. On being an Italy? XD Sorry, I don’t know what that means ahahah!

      But yeah, that’s the thing right? I should be saving for I don’t know… A house? And I’m spending it all in gaming lolol
