10 Tweets About Adult Life That Are Just Way Too Real

Is it just me, or is time going way quicker than it used to?

Maybe it’s working full-time, barely affording rent and bills, and only just having enough hours left over to eat and sleep.

Yep, I reckon that’s it.

Adulting is hard.

The days of Mum doing your washing, coming home to a cooked meal on the table and partying until 3am on a Wednesday are long gone.

Instead we’re wearing the same bra two weeks in a row, eating ASDA spag bol ready meals and are snuggled down in bed by 8pm.

What have we become?!

It seems that the only thing to do is laugh, or else we’d cry.

Apparently we’re not the only ones who think this.

#YouKnowYou’reAGrownUpWhen has been trending on twitter, and the results are hilarious.

Here are 10 of the best tweets to keep you from crying about your new, boring, adult life:

1. When grabbing some milk turns into a 20 minute maze experience.

2. Your bedroom becomes your nest and you won’t leave it for anything.

3. Zest for life? More like nest for life.

4. Did I mention I’m tired? No? I’m really tired.

5. Your social life is worked around getting a full 8 hours of sleep.

6. Why the hell are people born in 2001 applying for the same jobs as you!?

7.ย  Maybe you slept awkwardly, or maybe you’re dying of a rare disease. Who knows.

8. Who are BTS? And why are they so noisy?

9. I’m just going to leave this letter on the worktop for a few weeks before I open it…

10. Payday is fun for 0.4 seconds, before you realise half of it has to go on bills.


Chin up folks, at least now we can binge watch 8 hours of Netflix without anyone telling us off.

It’s not all bad.
