24 Things You'll Only Understand If You're 24
You can stop looking for the adult because you are the adult.
You furiously deny being in your "mid twenties" and prefer the term "late-early twenties".
It freaks you out that you are a proper, real adult now.
But you still have absolutely no idea what you're doing.
You're the tech support for your whole family.
But there are some things that the "kids" are doing these days that you just don't understand.
You find it easier to make conversation with a 40 year old than an 18 year old.
You can't get away with having pizza for breakfast lunch and dinner anymore.
And what's even stranger is that you don't even want to.
You start to actually forget the names of people you went to school with.
It has reached the tipping point where more of your friends are in a relationship than single.
You don't go on spontaneous nights out anymore.
Instead you spend your weekend going to civilised birthday parties in reserved areas of nice bars.
You know how your parents felt when everyone was wearing '80s neon stuff in 2008.
Some of your friends are having real planned babies that aren't dogs.
All the hottest new celebs are significantly younger than you.
And if you got magically discovered on some talent show you wouldn't be impressively young.
You really thought you'd have a proper career by now.
In fact when you were 13 you were pretty sure you'd own a house, be married, and have a seven year old child by this point.
And it terrifies you to think about what your parents were doing at your age.
You're now closer to your 30th birthday than your 18th.
Some of the time you really love being an adult, and feel very ~mature~.
But most of the time it all feels a bit much.
You know you can still achieve so much in those six little years until you're 30.
And you've still got tonnes of life ahead of you.
