Adulting sucks. I’m a toys r us kid, I don’t wanna grow up!

I'm going on 29 in a few months, and I refuse to consider myself an adult, even with my college graduation and driver's license!!

I don't have enough experience with adulthood yet to answer this question.



Adulthood for me.



Childhood, no question.

The littlest things amaze you when you're a child.  You didn't have money, sure, but you didn't need money since you could find enjoyment in just about anything.

All you do as a kid is eat, play and sleep.

Sounds pretty good.

Adulthood without a question. I do everything I did as a child, except now I do it for fun and not as an escape.

Instead of working tough jobs with little rise in pay, or going to school, I now work a cozy job that lets me pursue my goals independently.

While keeping the full time job is annoying, it is nice to have a stable income and build savings unlike when I was a child completely broke with the crushing thoughts of impending debt to come in college.

I think you have it backwards.  When you're a child you do things for fun, when you're an adult you do them for escape.  At least that's how it seems to me.



I think it depends on when you were born tbh,

See a lot of depressed kids (my guess is mainly cause of social media and no escape from bullying) these days compared to when I was a kid. Surely these will have a better adulthood?

Depends how fast you mature.

As well that as a child I would be stuck at home, without many choices. As an adult I can choose whatever I want to do.



Adulthood is far better.

Since I have more money available I buy much much more games, movies and mangas than I ever could.

No one is telling me to stop playing or stop watching TV.

I can have sex whenever I want. (I'm married, but even if I wasn't I could just buy sex)

I can organize my own travels.



I used to believe that childhood was better. In recent years my opinion has changed.

Adulthood.

I do miss childhood though.
