    guys I think I really missed out by being so well behaved as a kid and teenager. I should've caused all the harmless but delightful chaos I could when I had the chance. dammit.

    Excitement over getting new things we use for chores we hate is the weirdest part of being an adult

    when i was a child i didn't drink coffee and i was never tired. now i'm an adult who drinks coffee constantly and am always tired. the culprit for my fatigue is obvious: the iraq war

    i miss being a kid and watching inflation from the sidelines

    Had an ice lolly. Wanted another one … so I had another one. I still find it really WEIRD that I am allowed to just do that. Like there’s part of me that forgets I grew up. Being an adult is hard and shit and boring at times but then there are days when you have two lollies🕺

    Don’t know enough about music to know what makes jazz good. But know enough of myself to know that jazz makes my mind good. Best adulting discovery since learning the art of delegation 😌

    Adulting is realizing you only have 2 homies for life and the rest of the world is just for you to play along because we are social beings

    Twitter: @IndraAdhikary7


    Being an adult is really just paying rent, loading the dishwasher, figuring out what to eat for dinner every single night, and putting clothes away

    I miss being a kid and thinking I was rich with $10

    i learn more life hacks on twitter than i do in my master’s program, for example: today, i learned you’re not supposed to pour leftover cooking oil into ur drain pipe

    Twitter: @nftmisha


    one thing I have realized is how many very boring adult chores are coincidentally designed in a way that stops you from hearing your kids for an hour (pressure washing patio)
