Millennials aren’t kids anymore. The first generation to grow up with the internet is in full blown adult-mode, with the youngest millennials graduating college and the oldest ones pushing 40.
As the internet’s first native generation – how do we mark this momentous transition? With adulting tweets, that’s how.
Here’s what we’re learning:

9. Athletes are mean
You: "I'm only 35, I have my whole life ahead of me."
Sports Broadcaster: "Here comes the oldest player in the league. He's 32. A miracle."

8. Markets change
Me, age 18: I'll be a homeowner by the time I'm in my 30s
Me, in my 30s: I own a single pair of matching socks

6. You gotta indulge
Being an adult is 90% worrying about money and 10% spending money you don't have on treating yourself because you've worried a lot this week and you deserve it.

5. You’re your own boss
BEING AN ADULT
PRO: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner
CON: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner

Being an adult human is realizing that 90% of the time, the answer to “why do I feel like sh^t right now” is “drink more water, stupid.”

3. Don’t be late
No one warned me that being an adult was mostly just hurrying up to get somewhere you don't want to go in the first place.

2. Make the most of things
When you eat the crust not because you like it but because you paid for the darned thing.

1. Call your mom…maybe to apologize
Being an adult is just finally getting why your mom was upset about stuff when you were a kid.

All in all, I think we’re doin’ alright. Here’s to my fellow unwilling adults – at least you can legally raise a glass with me.
