What Was The Thing That Made You Say "Yep, I'm An Adult Now"?

I've finally figured out how much pasta is too much pasta to cook.

Okay so growing up is a wee bit hard and it comes out of nowhere. It's even harder when it seems like everyone else around you is absolutely thriving. I have to remind myself daily that we're all in the same strange "what am I even doing?" boat.

However, there are times when it seems like I've cracked the code, like recently when I could tell my doctor all of my symptoms without stuttering — I've finally solved adulthood!

I can't be alone in this, so what I want to know is – what was the moment you realised you'd successfully adulted?

Was it the first time you paid off all your bills and still had some money left over?

Maybe it was hosting a "totally grown up" get together and creating the most IG worthy charcuterie board ever...

Or was it the first time you cooked a pot of rice without crying?

Whatever it is that made you feel like you had control over this whole "growing up" nonsense, we want to know! Tell us all about it in the comments below, and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video!
