Each stage of your life is unique in its own way. Childhood is full of endless wonder and curiosity. Teen years are all about carelessness and freedom. The twenties are the introduction to adulthood. And thirties - thirties is when all the dust settles, and people have the confidence just to be themselves. Well, at least that's the poetic way of describing it.

And since many people around their 30s don't seem to be ready to be the adults society expects them to be, a new life stage has been named for people like that, and it's called emerging adulthood. This stage is not only prominent in the Millennials but has been seen for quite a while now. Anyways, now you can be the confused semi-adult you without feeling guilty about it.

Twitter users don't beat around the bush when telling what it really means to live in your 30s and, unfortunately, it's not all rainbows and unicorns. It's more along the lines of uneventful weekends, exciting pragmatism, mundane everyday problems and other similar paradoxes that are painfully accurate.

Scroll down to read the old folks tweets and tell us in the comments which one of these Millennial problems you relate to the most.

Going to a new store for me is like travelling. So many cool new things to see, keep comparing it all to "home" and all the prices are usually surprising (for better or for worse).

Does anyone know what book this is? The eccentric chapter names make me think of the Johannes Cabal Necromancer series... Okay, I just found it. It's a YA series: "How to Betray A Dragon’s Hero" by Cressida Cowell. Looks like fun.

That's because our dopamine levels have settled down so we don't take risks without thinking about consequences (which is the reason why many teens and young adults do stupid things).
