Regardless of our individual experiences, we can all agree we assumed growing up meant freedom and an easy life.
99% of us wanted to get passed those uncomfortable teenager years but ended up wishing we could step into a time machine away from terrifying driving tests, exams that are a lot harder than the Leaving Cert, taxes, jobs and a complicated dating life.
If you ever been fed up of adulting then you'll relate to these Twitter users:

adulthood is the shit. I just bought storage jars to put different types of flour in and I'm almost pissing myself with excitement

7. Life starts long before the 9-5 grind
there are few things I hate more than the phrase “the real world” and its subsequent implication that everything before you get a 9-5 job (arbitrary benchmark for adulthood) is somehow less than.

One of the biggest goals of adulthood is to make enough money to be as carefree as you were when you were a child.
