Adulting Sucks Ass Sometimes

Fuck adulting….

Do you ever find yourself sitting on the couch watching cartoons, wishing so hard you could wind back the clock to the easy days? The days where mum would bring you a sandwich cut into small triangles and no crust? Or when you’d pretend to be asleep after a long car ride so dad would carry you to your bed? Or when it was normal to head straight for the toy section at K-mart? Yeah I feel ya. Mind you, I still try all of these.. My mum is a saint too, so she would still probably bring me my sandwich cut up into triangles, I doubt dad would carry me to my bed after I fall asleep though… He’d probably end up drawing a dick on my face and shave my head, classic. One thing is for sure though, This soon-to-be 23-year-old runs express to the toy section of any shop, out of my way kids! I have LEGO to look at!

It all happens so fast though doesn’t it? One minute you’re sitting in class and your biggest worry is ‘what’s going to be for dinner’ and then with the blink of an eye you’re up to your nose in debt and eating Mi Goreng for every meal… Okay that was a bit drastic, but you get what I’m saying.

Personally I think it is so important for us as adults to still act like children every now and then. Well in my case its 24/7, but I don’t think that’ll ever change so I’ve just come to accept it. seriously though, on your next day off go to the store and by some Lego and spend the night playing and watching funny movies and eating candy, you’ll be amazed how therapeutic it is.

It’s funny when you think about it though, remember being like 14 and thinking “Fuck this, I can’t wait to be an adult. Then i can do anything I want and stay up as late as i want!” Now it’s like “What in the fuck was I thinking?!”, Plus you’re now spending your day thinking about how you cant wait to get home so you can go to bed.. Oh how the tables have turned.

For me, I think this is a huge reason I’m so excited to have kids. Watching cartoons, playing hide and seek, building LEGO, running through the sprinklers out the front, Making fairy bread (If you’re not Australian, Fairy bread is bread with butter and sprinkles on them. if you havent already, Fucking try it), going to birthday parties and getting lolly bags. Man how good!!

Don’t get me wrong, I do like being an adult to a certain extent. The freedom (kinda scary sometimes), being in control of your own life. The feeling of accomplishment you receive after doing something all by yourself, like booking a dentist appointment, or going to the hairdresser for the first time without mum and having to explain what you want instead of just looking to your mother and waiting for her to tell the lady how you have your hair, Buying a house, or a car.

Everyone needs to look after themselves though, if you ever feel like it is too much, just go up to a child and listen to them rant about life, listen to how pure they are and it will bring you back down to earth. There is no point worrying so much about things that are just going to hurt your brain. Be a kid every now and then and enjoy being on this earth. Nothing in this world is more important than yourself. So to all you adults out there struggling or thinking life is getting out of hand, take a deepbreath, and just be a kid for a day, fuck it. we all need to look after ourselves. Nothing beats a healthy mind!

  1. This made me laugh! Thanks for that! Trust me, I’m 27 years old and I still enjoy cartoons! Now, I have my baby girl who is 11 months old, and I have an excuse to watch all the cartoons, play with her and her toys and be extremely silly all over again.

    Your excitement is amazing and awesome, and I’m sure you’ll be a great parent! As long as you continue to enjoy LEGO, you’ll do just fine when that little one does eventually come along.

    Your post is a reminder that you can still be a kid – and an adult. I love it ❤️
