Our first-year selves were so optimistic. We were so looking forward to moving out and being hella ~independent~ for the first time ever. Why were we looking forward to adult life so much?! As grown-up responsibilities pile up, all we want to do is hide under a blanket until it all goes away. But these are the everyday adult struggles that we can't escape from…

You spend BIG every single payday on totally unncessary things

...but then you can't afford to pay for the things you actually need

You can no longer survive without copious amounts of caffeine

Your first real job/internship means you can’t go out drinking on weeknights like you used to

And when you have real work responsibilities you have no fucking idea what you’re doing

You come home after a long day of work and there’s so many chores to do…

…but instead of doing them, you spend hours binge-watching Netflix

You can’t be bothered to cook so you eat cereal for dinner instead

Your parents keep asking if you’re dating anyone so you give Tinder a go

But you’d much rather be home with a drink... or ice cream... or both

When people ask you what you want to do when you leave uni

You thought life as an adult would be like this...

...but it’s actually this… like, all the time
