The future freaks you out.

4. You buy into every Tinder success story, even though you're 99% sure they're entirely made up.

My friend's cousins' brother's friend found her SOULMATE on Tinder. True story.

5. You consistently pretend to understand your finances all while hoping TurboTax doesn't royally screw you when it comes time for tax season.

**Clicks yes for everything.**

6. Your life on Instagram is infinitely cooler than your real life actually is.

It's the illusion that matters.

7. You pretended to grow out of drinking Franzia, but you never actually stopped drinking it after college.



8. Your idea of a "balanced breakfast" is two cups of coffee before 9 a.m.

Beans are vegetables.

9. And Annie's macaroni and cheese is your idea of a healthy meal.


11. You're secretly holding out for Bill Gates to take care of your student loans.

17. And your idea of maturing means buying the more expensive bed option at IKEA. / Via

Even if you still struggle to put it together.


20. You have visited your parents at some point just because you knew it meant a balanced meal that you didn't have to pay for.

And also because you love them, obviously.

21. You've considered the major responsibility of getting a dog while simultaneously washing your underwear in the sink, because you didn't feel like doing a load of laundry.

Responsibility at it's finest. It's those damn ASPCA commercials.

22. You haven't consistently been to the eye doctor or dentist since your mom stopped making the appointments for you.

23. Your idea of keeping all of your financial paperwork organized means shoving it into the desk in your room that you've never actually sat at.

At least it's all TOGETHER.
