I graduated college a little over a year ago, so by society’s standards, I’m an adult. But not by my standards, and certainly not anyone who has had to spend time with me during this past year. [Not true! — Editor] The year after we first move out our own can be a time of growth, as rewarding as it is challenging, but it almost certainly comes with a number of very stupid mistakes.

Here are 15 not-so-adult things we all did during our first year of adulthood. I certainly did.

1. Used Google for things we really should have already known: false false

2. Cried in public.
