This Weekend Open Thread is Adulting… Not

Who let me into my thirties? I’m not ready for this.

The adage that no one ever feels like an adult, and that we’re all just tall imposters, is totally true, isn’t it? Is there ever a time when you actually start to feel like a grown-up? I still run to my mom when I get sick or sad, so I’m pretty sure I’m not there yet.
