Adults Answer All The Burning Questions Teens Have About Getting Old

As teenagers, we always wondered what it was like to officially “adult.” We just simply couldn’t wait to do what we wanted, get what we wanted, and be what we wanted without having someone hovering over us telling us what to do and what not to do. Freedom was a craving, independence was a desire. Little did we know that all of the good things in life almost always come with a price and in this case, it’s student loans, credit card debts, rent, groceries, and full on responsibilities to keep ourselves alive. Now we look back and realize just how lucky we were to not have to deal with all those pesky duties. But of course, you live and you grow and soon the next batch of unappreciative teens bloom and we can’t wait to knock some sense into them and answer their dumbfounded questions.
