Things that Suck About Being An Adult
  • Filing auto insurance claims.

Things that Don't Suck About Being An Adult
  • Staying up as late as you want.
  • Watching any movies or TV shows that you please. Even The Simpsons.
  • Eating cake for breakfast. (Except for the last point in the first section.)
  • Living with a member of the opposite sex. Who isn't your parent.
  • Being friends with your parents--not because you have to, or you live with them, but because you love them and they are genuinely interesting, fun people.
  • The fact that bills and housework signify that you are independent and master of your own home. (Even if you do have to pay for it and upkeep it.)
  • Having the choice to go to school, or not.
  • Being able to enter things like "awesome new games for the Wii" into the budget.
  • Having a great job that I love, that is what I was trained to do, instead of all the wondering and worrying and preparing for my future. Dude, I am living my future.
