Default How's adulthood?

So for those of you who are already 18 or much much older. How's adulthood? Enjoyful? The responsibilities?

It feels great not to mooch off your parents. Also, no one can tell me what to do anymore. o_o

It's a whole different can of worms. Hard to explain. Just throw me some questions.

i'm 21.

i don't think i'm in a mindset right now to seriously consider your questions... in lots of ways i am still a kid. but i do have grown up like responsibilities that i don't paticularly find enjoyable.

i work a lot. i work everyday even most holidays. that's consequence of me not having a -good- job. and good here means white collar with an office job. lol. when you were a school kid you had lots of vacations. maybe when i get a salary job i'll be more content in that aspect

social life... uhi guess it might come as easy as back in grade school. when iw as in grade school i only talked to people at school and never talk to anyone when home or on breaks. so i guess i'm the same way with work. i'll talk to you at work but not outside of it.

money. money is... well when i was young i had wants and needs. but when you're young your parents supply your needs and your more reasonable wants if lucky. now i'm older i have a shit load of needs and even more wants... i can barely afford my needs and sometimes i still wanna splurge on myself... but u gotta hold back and be responsibility. besides... ur credit is on the line. credit is a cruel mistress if handled wrongly.

when you're young you're responsible for yourself and your chores. school work. ok when you're older you're responsible for helping the family. taking care of yourself. then you have bills. then you have maintenance of the itens you own. insurance is... awful.

but the thing is to realize that you're giong to make some mistakes in these areas when u grow up and feel disappointed but that's what it all is. growing up. you're not little anymore. your parents had to do it too! your neighbor. your teacher. the bank teller.

so when u feel overwhelmed just talk to your parents. they probably call u immature but it's also mature that you're even talking about it.

there are good points too. but i'm still a really young adult so i still have yet to get the full experience yet

Yeah it was me. A white-collar job has its perks but it's boring. Trust me, no one likes to stare at Microsoft Excel all day.

To be fair, this job may be boring but it has sent me to different countries and bought me a lot of things. I don't think I would ever experience getting chauffeured around in a limo if it weren't for this job. Plus, it built me a pretty impressive resume.

It's just a stepping stone anyway. I'm moving on.

Is there something wrong with having problems that need to be solved? And if you were trying to imply ''psychological'' problems, well I am not on par with society's normality teenage standards.

Half the time it sucks that you can't get away with the same crap you pulled in highschool, the other half of the time is great because you can buy booze and cigarettes.

I love being an adult (I'm 25 btw)
But I also loved being a kid and a teenager- so I can't really say if one is better than the other.

As an adult you can do whatever you feel like, so long as you are willing to accept the consequences of your actions. You don't have to do chores, eat your veggies, do your work - but likewise then you could just end up living in filth, as fat as a cow and unemployed. So for the most part if you had good parents, what this really means is no one is watching your back all the time anymore- you have to do the "right thing" because it's good for you, not cause someone is telling you to.
As an adult I have a hard time feeling bad for any teenager who complains about their parents or their chores - think your parents are annoying cause they tell you to get off the computer and clean your room? or perhaps you think your parents are unfair cause they won't give you 20 dollars to go to the movies with your friends? Just wait until you own your own house and you constantly have to clean all of it, take care of the yard, worry about bills, pay off loans, keep a decent credit score, physical health, etc, all while working at least 40 hours a week.
I find I have a lot less time to do random crap as an adult cause I'm too busy just micromanaging all the different parts of my life.
Now this isn't to say being an adult isn't awesome - It's great having control over your own life and for me I really love my job and work with great people that I consider friends (and family, my sister works at the same office lol), and of course there is the joys of being married (which I'm sure you can all imagine )
but sometimes it would be nice to be a teenager again and have my major worry be the next calculus exam or something LOL.

I'm 22, although I like to delude myself that I'm still 17 sometimes. Of course as an adult you have alot more responsibilities; noone's gonna go chasing after you to get things done- you have to make things happen yourself.

However, I guess I'm in a tight situation right now since I'm not totally financially independent yet (college .-.).

Being a young adult means you can still indulge in pampering yourself and whatnot but being a adult adult you can't.
Being a young adult would mean adult adults would want you to contribute to household expenses but you can still get away with not helping at all.(Especially if you have unstable finances)
Being a young adult means you would start thinking more about consequences of your actions.(Which is a bore many times when you just wanna act like a kid)

Still i miss having 1 month of vacation to do whatever i want.(rolling around at home doing nothing basically)Being a adult also means you have less vacations and hafta work your butt off when others are slacking off DX

Same here for now

It's cool to have money, but having almost all your time taken by job sucks. Then when you got a day off all you want to do is sit home and take it easy =[

I still live with my parents so I haven't experienced everything yet, but generally it's alright.
I hated when I was young I had to mooch my freaking parents for the smallest things, now I get what the hell I choose when I choose to.

I always thought i'd be much more mature at my age, but I was already pretty mature in my early teens so nothing really changed.

It sucks. Seeing as how my mentality is still that of my younger self, I'm much better off as a kid since apparently I'm too immature to grasp the concept of how to actually be an adult.
