The mythical land of Adulthood. Man We couldn't wait to grow up, have money in our pockets, but most importantly set our own rules. While that's all well and good, this is not what I signed up for. Adulthood comes with alot of responsibility, here's three things I've noticed comes with being a adult.
"Getting Too Old is Real"
As a kid you would notice older folks saying they getting too old for things. That statement is very true, whether it's aching, or soreness from still trying to be play ball like you young. Your stomach telling you that junk food you use to eat in your twenties is a no go anymore. Not recovering from that hangover as quick as you use to. When 8:15 comes you're thinking damn I need to start winding down.To not being sure where the hell time went cause you just entered your freshman year of college, now you got a family and mortgage.
Little things like walking through home depot for future home projects excite you. And staying home watching TV is actually the move you prefer to make on weekends. Then the gray hair starts appearing here and there, slowly but surely you start realize you #gettingold.
"I'm Sick of This Shit!!”
Mannnn if you never uttered this line You're not an adult. Everytime you turn around something is going up, utilities, food, cable, gas meanwhile paychecks staying the same. You gotta adjust things and stretch your dollar a little further, it's enough to make you crazy. If it's not a bill going up in price, it's a new bill you have to acquire in order to pay off a big item. If it's not the big item it's some shit around the house or something that happens to your car, just anything unexpected that forces you to kick out some money you didn't intend to kick out.
Everybody got a hustle and the hustle is taking more off your money. It’s a cold world out here and you just trying to make it. Everything is pulling at your wallet, cant beat it so just scream “I’m sick of this shit!!” and feel better about the situation.
"Being A Kid Was Actually Better"
Don’t get me wrong I enjoy seeing the fruit of my hard work. I enjoy putting a key in a door of a place I call home. I enjoy being able to do things and enjoy life.
At the end of the day being a kid was actually better. Didn't have to worry about that dreaded “B" word. Something gets broke its it's someone else's problem.
Work was going to school and any chores. Life as an adult is not all doom and gloom, it's tough and teaches perseverance when stuff goes wrong. Damnit I didn't sign up for this!
