18 Tweets That Perfectly Capture the Struggle That Is Adulthood

English playwright Oscar Wilde once said, “Youth is wasted on the young.”

I often think about this quote when I ride in to work everyday and consider what I’ve done with my life. Because we had all that time! And what did we do with it? Eat gummy fruits and watch reruns? Why wasn’t I investing in stocks?!

Thankfully, there’s Twitter. Where comedians hang out and tweet funny shit that we can all relate to. Sure, it can be depressing to think about how your life has turned out so far, but at least we can all laugh at it.

Right? We can laugh at it?! It’s funny right?! RIGHT?!?!

I kid. Let’s have fun.

1. So much me. So much.

2. I enjoy “cooking”

3. 4 hours at least. 6 hours at the most.

4. What a pain!

5. I read lots of Böökes

6. Stop jumping! I want to get back on my feet!

7. Wait… how much is THAT?

8. Why doesn’t anybody stop me from doing these things?!

9. I didn’t ask for this!

10. Too expensive!

11. I scream! And… that’s it. I just scream.

12. MINE!

13. Q: What do you want to be when you grow up? A: An employee, apparently.

14. Drugs help.

15. Time works differently now.

16. OMG. This is so true!

17. It’s basically Netflix. That’s my existence. Thanks.

18. Can I hire a domineering mom for another 5 years?

Okay, that settles it. Ice cream and thin mints for dinner.

To the dollar store!

20 Period Memes That Almost Make the Cramps Worth It

Ok, no. That’s not accurate, because NOTHING can make period cramps worth it. I obviously don’t know firsthand, but I definitely believe my wife when she tells me this every month. Her pain tolerance is WAY higher than mine, so if she’s hurting, I can’t even imagine how bad it must be.

Still, they say laughter is the best medicine, and these hilarious memes will at least ease the pain a little bit.

Viral Post Proves 99.9% of Men Have No Idea What a Speculum Is

Ok, so I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I actually did know what a speculum was, as well as what it’s used for. I’m honestly not sure why I know this. I’ve never seen one in person and I DAMN sure haven’t seen one in use.

Most guys, however, have no clue what this is, which might be the reason that someone came up with the genius idea to post this question on Facebook.

This is always fun. (Credit: Unknown)

Conservative commentator Denise McAllister is no stranger to controversy, as evidenced by her recent feud with Meghan McCain. That’s a story for another day, though. Today, we’re here to examine something else she said recently that ended up giving her the wrong kind of viral fame.

McAllister took to Twitter to remind her fellow women how they should behave while their man is watching a big sporting event on TV. Prepare to roll your eyes in a MAJOR way.

Patience and timing, ladies…

Wow. Even as a man I think this is totally ridiculous, and I’m not alone.

Check out some of the reactions the tweet managed to get.

Viral Twitter Thread Perfectly Explains Why Nobody Should “Wait for You” to Change

Stop me if you’ve heard this one – girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy needs to grow up, girl keeps waiting for him to do it. It happens way too often. If it hasn’t happened to you personally, it probably did to someone you know.

Well, this Twitter thread is for you.

Twitter user @awkward_duck shared a heartbreaking tale of how a friend of hers (a guy) kept screwing up and not taking his relationship seriously. Result: relationship lost.

The set up…

2 years?!?

You never have anybody “on hold”

She told you bro!

Well, it worked for Offset and Cardi B, so…

Gotta let it go, bro…

Gotta fix yourself first…

Wait… 7 years?!

Don’t do the math. Just don’t.

Look in the mirror bro

You blew it

She is fixing to get married. What do you not understand about that?

Being a friend means tough love sometimes…

Naturally, so many could relate and shared their own experiences…

TBH, last minute saves are insulting…

Please be with me so I can take advantage…

Take care of yourself first

This.

So many don’t even know this about themselves!

Yep.

After 67K+ retweets and 165k+ likes, Brown tweeted her appreciation for people picking up her words and sharing them with the world. She also gave us all some advice we could use right now:

The more you can work on you and feel better about who YOU are, the more you’ll be ready to meet that person who fits with the happiest (or happier) version of you.

Truth!

Male Athlete Gets Roasted to a Crisp for Comparing Skinned Knees to Period Pain

It’s unbelievable to me that we still need to say this in 2019: Guys, DON’T ever try to tell a woman that her period pains aren’t that serious. Honestly, it takes a real idiot to belittle someone’s pain. I’ve known dudes who could get stabbed in the chest without blinking an eye and yet quivered at the sight of a flu shot. You never know how something affects someone, and their pain is not made any less real just because it doesn’t hurt you the same way.

And yet, there’s always some self-appointed jackass willing to offer his hot take anyway, like this guy.

This man not only claimed that women tend to overreact to their menstrual pain, but he also compared that discomfort to skinned knees, which all of us have experienced at one time or another in our lives. Take a look at his post.

Dude…you’re an idiot. And you know you just opened the floodgates to get your ass handed to you.

Ladies, you may proceed.

What was this guy thinking? Here’s some more feedback for him.

Do you think this guy will ever open his mouth like this again? My money is on “NO.”

Viral Post Perfectly Captures the Frustrating Truth About Women’s Clothing

Guys don’t like buying clothing, but considering how much easier it is for us to buy clothes, you’d think we’d be more enthusiastic about it. Seriously fellas, if you think buying men’s clothing is a chore, buying women’s clothing is a whole different ballgame.

You see, women’s clothing sizes can vary wildly from brand to another. There’s no “large, medium, small,” just a bunch of numbers that mean nothing. Seriously, what might be a 12 in one brand could be a 6 in another brand and a 16 in another. It’s like the wild west out there.

A Twitter user named Chloe recently posted a picture that very neatly expressed her annoyance with this unfortunate phenomenon.

As you can see, that’s a whole bunch of jeans that look a lot different from each other but are all size 12.

Chloe continued…


In another response, Chloe said, “No wonder women feel so insecure. I’ve had size 10 dresses, fit fine, then I’ll try on size 14 jeans that won’t even go past my hips, it’s not right”

Other Twitter users agreed with Chloe and offered their own thoughts.

Seems like a super annoying problem to have to deal with constantly.

Ladies, what do you think? Do you have a lot of issues like this with clothing?

Let us know in the comments!

Women Working in Male-Dominated Industries Share Their Horror Stories on Twitter

I honestly can’t even imagine how tough it must be to be one of the only women in a male-dominated industry. One of my cousins actually fits that description, and the stories she’s told me are no joke.

Still, nothing compares to the Twitter replies on @lameravioli‘s post:

Yikes! She also shared a couple of other incidents:

Travel Blogger Shares Her Best Tips for Women Traveling Alone

Traveling is an essential experience that expands your horizons in ways you could never have experienced at home. Traveling with people to share that experience is definitely awesome, but traveling alone is a great experience too!

That said, traveling solo isn’t without its challenges – particularly if you’re a woman. Let’s face it, if you can get harassed walking the block in your own neighborhood, you certainly should trust fate in places where you don’t know the lay of the land or speak the language.

That’s why Ciara Johnson, a popular Black travel blogger on Instagram, shared a series of solo travel tips for women.

Photo Credit: Twitter

“I’m a woman and I travel the world alone, from Mexico to Morocco to Cuba to Bosnia to many other countries. Here’s a thread on how I stay safe,” Ciara wrote on Twitter.

First, Ciara is “hyper aware” of her surroundings. “Scan your surroundings,” she said. “Is someone walking close to you? Does someone appear to be watching you? Did that car just pull beside you & slow down?” If you notice something awry, don’t hesitate to get out of there. Always trust your gut.

As Ciara writes: “It’s better to look a little paranoid than to be harassed, robbed, or worse.”

Second, Ciara recommends doing a lot of research before you go. You can never be too prepared, so look up “cultural norms, customs, how to dress, scams, natural disasters, political climate, etc.,” she writes. She also recommends looking for accounts by other solo female travelers, and checking reviews for hotels.

Third, Ciara uses technology wisely. She avoids pulling her phone out randomly on the street. But she does use Google Maps, translation apps, Uber. She makes sure to have access to data to keep her family and friends aware of her location.

“Make sure someone, anyone… knows where you are & where you’re staying,” she said.

Fourth, Ciara trusts other women before other men. Solo travelers have to rely on strangers to some extent, but don’t trust just anyone. “If I need directions, I usually ask a woman. This is not to say all women can be trusted, but I feel more comfortable trusting a woman on first instinct.”

And fifth, Ciara avoids giving out information that could be used against her. She doesn’t let her massive social media following know exactly where she travels until after she’s left, for example. She lies if someone asks if she’s travelig alone.

Armed with these tips, there’s nowhere you can’t go – and the experience is totally worth it!
