I hate being an adult. I know this may get laughed at, but...how come no one ever warns you about how boring and routine it is? I am constantly in a state of nostalgia, it borderlines on depression over my lost youth. I hate the bills, the responsibilities, the lack of spontaneity, effin everything! Mostly I miss the amount of time I would spend with my friends. Do I really have to accept that it's over? Because I refuse to be one of those 30 year olds dressing like a tween with pigtails. Puke!

    But, I guess we just need to try to make it interesting. . .Life it pretty short. We just need to make the most of it. Try something new everyday to keep things interesting. . . I often do very odd things just to get a laugh. Keeps me sane...

    Speaking of adult shut-ins, we need to go out , just you and me sometime... I'd go by myself, but I have no business being in a bar by myself.

    You do understand that looks like it was directed towards the "confessor" right?

    It's not over! Just try to find time on the weekend to go out and do something! My old boss is the inspiration I look at when I get scared that in the next few years I'm just going to be another adult with a boring routine. She's in her fourties, a successful director of a company, but she still goes out dancing and to bars with her girlfriends and boyfriend, and she actually just got back from a trip to Jamaica a few weeks ago. Thankfully my job now after graduating college is rather fun..lol..so right now I'm not really worrying.

    It does get really boring and repetitive. I was an 18 year old that had only a small, non-important job with nothing but partying to do and now, 2 years later I have two kids and a husband. Just find the simple joys in life and try to make things interesting. I do love my life, although it is routine.

    i can totally identify with that feeling. took me a while to realize what was it that made me depressed after i graduated and started working.. what i think is, its a matter of our own choice, choosing between financial security and happiness and satisfaction from a job you actually like.. if theres a job that you would actually enjoy, then your life could be different.. but it might not be exactly a well-paid job... being an adult really sux, i feel like im numb and i dun hv much feelings anymore... i can see ppl around me worrying abt money and careers, and its like this is their life..anyway this is just a sad perspective of life, and i think we should just remain positive, and find ways to make ourselves happy when we feel that sth is wrong..

    I also hate being an adult. My mind is still stuck with my childhood, while im given all the tasks of an adult.... I'm so tired of it. I miss the hugs, and attention, and people who don't look at you like a good time in bed, but look at you as an innocent being, that brings light into the world. I hate everything about my adulthood. I want nothing to do with dating, and I still sometimes wish I had someone to hold my hand when i cross a street. :( I miss being a little girl...

    You guys have NO idea how relieved I am to read this post and some of the comments. I HATE being an adult. It seems like everywhere I look another thing for "youth" is being set up. I miss being able to rely on people for help rather than being expected to randomly know it all. Where do you go once you don't have parents and teachers and youth-lines and youth-centres to help? How is it people suddenly seem to think you know how to manage bills when you've never done it before? And where exactly to adults meet potential partners anyway when you don't go to bars?
    I don't get the whole drinking thing (which seems to be the place people meet so I don't meet dates). I wish I did but I'm not like that so I stay a student to keep a hold of some of that. And all the extra-curricular activities are gone now because they were all school based or youth based.
    Like I said...SO relieved to see people feeling the same way. I LOVE the internet!
