  • not at all
  • Nope...the best days were when I was younger and didn't have a care in the world.
  • Oh hell no!
  • no. :( While no-one can really stop me from playing in the ballpit or having cartoon theme songs in my CD player, i can't dye my hair fun colours anymore or try to verbally outsmart my superiours ooor have my screwups waved off as "youthful indiscretion."
  • I very much enjoy being an adult. All those freedoms that I craved as a child have been as wonderful as I imagined. With that freedom comes a great deal of responsibility, but I think the sacrifice has been well worth it. I had a great childhood and I have likewise enjoyed being an adult. I didn't miss out on either end. Lucky me. :)
  • nope. I used to think there would be no fun when I'd grow up and will have no toys to play with, no cartoons to watch and will have to watch news. I didn't know that as an adult u'd have this other pleasure that would please u ;)
  • I like the freedom I didn't have as a child, but I'm not crazy about the responsibilities.
  • I haven't really matured much, which is kewl, I thought being an adult was going to be boring as hell
  • I think so. Even as a kid I had a pretty realistic idea of what the adult world entailed: bills and taxes, mundane things like grocery shopping and commutes. Maybe the only time I had an unrealistic idea of the adult world was during college when I was drunk all the time and basically living off my parents, which wasn't really being an adult at all. I think a lot is up to the parents. Letting kids get a handle on the idea that being mature means willingly taking on responsibility helps ease their transistion from youth to adulthood. Parents who don't ask their kids to put any discipline into their lives, and buy their kid toy after toy (or as teenagers: car after cell-phone after i-pod) aren't doing them any favors - just producing spoiled, shallow kids who associate consumerism with fun and work with boredom! Parents that help kids get involved in interesting activities that require some kind of discipline - scout/community groups, music or art, summer jobs or internships that are about more than just earning $ for the movies, - help prepare their kids for a fun AND meaningful adult life.
  • yes - i love being an adult - i can go anywhere i want to and do anything i want to -
  • Seriously! I thought it was going to be fun, no one told me I would have to have a job and support a family, and actually pay bills. It's terrible, if you figure out a way to make me young again please let me know!! :)
  • i thought when i became an adult i wouldnt have to go to school and i could just do whatever. well i dont have to go to school but i gotta work so i was a little disappointed. lol!
  • Hahaha...oh HELL no! I had quite the wild imagination when I was younger. Being grown up is not quite the crazy "fairytale" that my little mind concocted!
  • I might be the oddball out here but I'm going to say yes. It's hard, yeah, but I like being able to determine the course of my own life - to be able to captain my ship, you know?
  • It turned out to be a lot more expensive than I thought it would be.
  • I think so. The freedom to do whatever I want is really really nice.
  • Responsiblity and bills,kids,home these kids just don't know how lucky they are right now.one thing about being an adult is that you can do what the kids can't but im glad to have made it this far.
  • Nope. Being an adult is just like going feet up and head down in a roller skating party. Either way, it's a pain in the neck, and you're no longer coasting along having a big time, but rather holding your head as you leave saying, "I need an asprin and a drink." They're also both curable. The big difference: one is curable by a good night's rest. The other you have to die to cure.
  • No, it's horrible.
  • Fun? Well, I don't know. One of the tragedies of adulthood is that we sometimes forget how to have fun. But life is fun for me - at any age.
  • I knew early on how tough being a grown up was going to be so I put it off for as long as I could. I guess I had a bit of a Peter Pan syndrome, but boy was I right!!!
  • im 19 and HELL NO. too many bills
  • Nope. The responsibilities usually outweigh the fun. However, there are times when it is A LOT more fun than I ever imagined.
  • Nay, its not free, i think no one has enough sex.
  • It was, until I discovered that I would have to do everything for myself and take total responsibility for my own actions. I miss my Mommy!
  • when i was a teenager i never thought about being an adult. i did what i wanted because i was always left alone. i actually like being an adult better than my childhood/teenage years. now i don't have to put up with ppl's bullshit or answer to anyone.
  • Better, much better.
  • At times, absolutely! I never enjoyed being a kid that much even tho I had great parents. I'd rather make the decision I want to make and live with it than having someone make one for me that I felt made no sense.
  • GOD NO!!!!!!!!!! growing up you think its going to be cool being able to do anything you want then its like i want to go back to 1st grade were everything was easier!!
  • Nope. Being younger was much more fun.
  • As a boy I never thought about being an adult.
  • It's definitely more complicated than I thought it would be and I'm able to handle more than I thought I could.
  • GOD NO, "Youth is wasted on the young"~~truer words have never been said, enjoy your youth, becoming an adult is not 'fun'
  • I didn't expect being an adult to be a "good time". I expected it would be fairly tedious so it wasn't much of a disappointment. Even expecting it would be difficult (to some extent), I was actually looking forward to the challenges I knew it would bring. I had an awesome childhood and I knew that very well at the time.
  • I never thought it would be fun. I thought it meant freedom from oppression and abuse, but that wasn't the case either. There is always someone who will oppress you if you allow them.
  • Yes and NO! I don't like paying RENT but I like doing what I want 😄
  • not really since i cant get a job
  • There are times that are full of joy and fun. Not sure I thought it would be fun, only that I could do more and make my own decisions.
