I don't know at what point you feel like you're 'grown up' but I can tell you for me, it ain't at 23 years old It's becoming more and more apparent that us millennials are feeling increasingly lost in the world and uhm, avoiding all responsibilities and shunning convention. 

Maybe we don't ever get to a point where we feel completely grown up. Maybe our parents and all the other 'grown ups' are just winging it too but there are definitely some aspects of my life I think 'this is peak adulting.'

Here's my (less than serious) pros and cons of being an adult.
