So, now that we’ve hit our 30s, we’re definitely in control of our lives, right? Um, Right.
As a 30-something who ate nine tater tots and the crust off a pizza for dinner last night, I’m gonna just go ahead and say that “adulting” is not exactly my strong suit. Especially when it comes to what I eat. (Whatever; wine is a vegetable).
Anyway, here are 20 tweets about the struggle that is adulting. Yes, I found most of these when I should have been doing more productive, adult-like things that did not involve Twitter. It’s scary how much I relate to these.

3. Tupperware drought, and tupperware bounty: the circle of life.
One day, you look in your cabinets and there's no tupperware. The next day, somehow, tupperware is so plentiful, it falls out when you open the cabinet door. And you realize you have too much tupperware and you don't know where they came from.— Awesomely Luvvie (@Luvvie) May 23, 2018

6. This one's for when you just can't.

7. If my 14-year-old self had any idea this was all there was to it ...
Adulthood is basically just deciding whether you pay your student loans or health insurance each month. Living the dream my friends, living the dream.#adulting #studentloans #millennialproblems pic.twitter.com/923W0pkAs5— Saralyn Norkus (@SaralynV) April 11, 2018

10. As an adult, sometimes it's the little things.

16. It's funny (by which I mean sad) because it's true.

18. Sometimes the bar for "highlight of my week" is low.
Doing 4 loads of laundry and not losing a sock has been the highlight of my week. #adulting— HN (@HNekvinda) May 23, 2018
19. It's OK, though; I'm pretty sure coffee is also a vegetable.
I planned on making beef Wellington with cheesy mashed potatoes stuffed back in their skins along with a special homemade cream spinach.— Andrew Heister (@andrew_heister) May 20, 2018
Instead, I ate 2 sleeves of Oreos dunked into my coffee.#adulting like a boss
