    Illustrated Truths About Adulthood

    Sometimes the absurdities and subtleties of this thing we call adulthood are best captured in the panels of a comic strip.

    The future is here. You're an "adult" now, apparently.

    Even though you don't really know what that means.

    It can be kind of a sweet deal.

    You get to spend your time however you want.

    Seriously, you can just do whatever you want.

    You have the freedom to redefine your world. Things like "breakfast" and "well-rounded" meal.

    Oh sweet, sweet freedom.

    You also develop a deeper emotional maturity.

    And you'll get better at dealing with self doubt.

    Let's be honest, you also just get better at being lazy.

    It's also a time of a lot of uncertainty. And it can be hard to pretend you've got it all together.

    You will feel bursts of existential anxiety in between the most mundane of tasks.

    But while your new adult perspective may be bittersweet...

    ...don't let that take away from the fact that the world is still full of beauty and magic.

    Oh and, FYI, this is only one stage of adulthood...

    But, rest assured, no one else knows what they're doing either.
