This is probably not breaking news, but being an adult is hard, like, really hard.
School never taught us how to file taxes, get a job, or what a 401(k) is (and do I need this?). No Disney movie prepared us for the kind of stress that life after college holds. (Can we have fewer Prince Charmings and more navigating the mystery that is health care?)
In solidarity of the struggle, Twitter gathered under the hashtag #AdultingIn5Words:
