All joking aside, I'd say that I spend an exceptional amount of time thinking about what it means to be an adult. At 26, I wrestle with this notion constantly, sometimes what feels like every moment of every day.

Facebook never knew I went skydiving. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If you have an exciting experience and don't tell social media, did it really happen? Dude. Mind blown.

We understand that to be happy means to search for it, deep in the trenches of our everyday joys and woes, and that it's hard to do. How many of us are saying to ourselves every single day, "If I just had the chance, I could be so much happier."

They're "In-Betweeners." They fluctuate between living at home and living on their own. They have jobs, but only for the sake of making enough money to get by while they figure out what they really want to do -- bouncing between scattered, abandoned starts. They're the twenty-somethings.

Everyone my age has some dangling worry trailing around after them everywhere that they're somehow not doing everything, that what they're doing is not altogether the right thing, that they are missing out. The doubt is natural, and everyone you know -- yes, even that person -- carries it sometimes too.

Through our life experiences, we have lessons. Like our strapping student debt, lessons don't come without some form of payment. In life, this payment comes in the form of a lot of emotional baggage. Everyone has it.

I'm guessing we are all going to have boring, ordinary weekends filled with Netflix and laundry. Because we are human beings. And that's life. It's not very Tweet-worthy, but we don't have to conquer the world in the next year or two to be successful.
