Your parents were your age when they had their second kid. Your dad was your age when he opened his law practice. And your parents were your age when they bought their first house. You live in a studio apartment, your car payment is two weeks past due and you are still waiting for that guy from Tinder to text you back after the mediocre date you two went on last week. Cheers!
You used to spend the day looking forward to the concert you were going to that night. Or that boy you were going to see at your friend's house party. Now you spend the day looking forward to laying on your couch in your pajamas eating quinoa and watching The Bachelor.
You know you should go out. You should go out but you don't really want to. But it is Karen's birthday so you should go see her. But you don't really want to go. Maybe you'll just go to the next thing? Yes definitely the next one.
Oh boo! It's raining all day. What am I to do? I guess now I have the perfect excuse to not go to any of those things I was invited to on Facebook and to stay inside all day and do absolutely nothing. Aww, man! I wouldn't want to go out and catch a cold!
You know that you are not supposed to eat that piece of pizza but it is right in front of you and it looks delicious so you have to eat it. You'll just work out more tomorrow or you'll eat salad (and only salad) for the rest of the week. But you are going to eat that pizza and then you are going to feel really, really bad about it after.
When you were a kid, the doctor's office was torture. Now the real torture is opening your mail and waiting to see what they charged you for your latest appointment. $180 for a blood test!? Shame on you, Blue Cross Blue Shield.
When you were little you couldn't wait to grow up. But then you did and you realize that being an adult sucks. So now you'll spend the rest of your life wishing you were younger. It's the circle of life, baby!
Whether it's a weird growth on your body, a word that you don't know how to spell or a legal term you've never heard of before, Google is your friend. What the hell did we do without Google? Ugh, that's right. We had to look it up in an encyclopedia. Gross.
All day you are fighting to stay awake. You keep dozing off while your boss is talking to you. Your eyes are closing while driving. You are so exhausted, but the second you go to fall asleep, you are suddenly wide awake and riddled with anxiety.
You spend most of your life searching for success. You compare yourself to others and spend way too much time feeling like you are not good enough. But just remember, every single successful person that struggled just like you did so to get to where they are today.
