Hilarious adulting memes for anyone who is entering adulthood or tired of grown-up responsibilities
I wanna be forever young
According to Dictionary.com, adulting is a slang term used "to describe behaviour that is seen as responsible and grown-up. This behaviour often involves meeting the mundane demands of independent and professional living, such as paying bills and running errands."
For most of us, adulting can be hard. We are thrust into doing things we were never taught to do in school. From signing a cheque book to figuring out your taxes or making sure you save some money from your salary as well as balance how to eat, drink, and be merry yet responsible all at the same time. It's exhausting and there is no manual.
But the great thing about things that suck is laughing at things that suck. We are all in this together. You don't have to ever feel alone – just like being in the current circuit breaker. Here are some of our favourite memes to do with adulting (or the lack of it):

Remember those childhood fantasies you had about being an adult?

Me as an adult: if I don’t finish this glass of water and go to bed by 9, I’m gonna die.
But I will admit that I thoroughly enjoyed eating ice cream while walking past a kindergarten and seeing their envious faces on my after-lunch treat. Yes, I am mean, but I am an adult and can do that.

PRO: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner
CON: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner
Although, I miss my youthful energy. Nowadays my brain wants one thing (let's drink!), while my body wants another (please lie down!).
Especially when I used to be such a party person.

Now sleeping is so precious.
And you have to do everything yourself.
While it may seem that everyone else has it together.
We promise you, they don't.

We can always ask for help, though we may still not know what we're doing.
But it will be all OK (now breathe).
