50 Ways Adulting Sucks (And Why You Should Enjoy Your Youth While It Lasts)

Once you read this list from Ask Reddit, you are going to wish you were a kid again.

1. Planning out a week’s worth of meals before going to the grocery store and then not wanting to eat the meal I planned but doing it anyway.

2. How incompetent everybody is.

When I was a child adults always had the answer. You would look at somebody in their thirties and they knew had their shit together, they had a house, a partner, 2.4 kids, a good career. Basically, adults knew what they were doing everything was under control.
