How Grown Up Are You Actually?
You’re basically a kid without the rules. You can stay up as late as you want and eat cereal for dinner. Your inner child still runs the show, and it makes your life all the more interesting. Keep on livin’ everyday like it’s show-and-tell!
Adulting is kind of hard, so you’re only able to commit part-time at the moment. You’ve got the essentials down, so well done! Stay young, stay free, and stay happy!
OK, so you haven’t got it all figured it out, but who does? You’re still a pro at this adulting thing because if someone asks you to explain 401(k), you can definitely talk for a full 60 seconds before referring back to Google. Well done!
You skipped puberty and dove headfirst into adulthood. You’ve been filing your own taxes since high school, and your dentist probably loves you. Is it too much to ask for a fresh set of coasters or socks on your birthday?
