Adulthood is Overrated. I Want My Money Back. (Obligatory Birthday Post)

Today, I’m 26. I’m seriously beginning to dread this one number added to my age every year, and for good reason. I’m now entering this stage in life that people lovingly refer to as “late 20’s.” I hate that. It’s like I should look at these other 20 year-olds and be this guy who’s pensive and shit and guide everyone through this hazardous wasteland called “the 20’s.” No, seriously. I can imagine myself smoking a pipe as I dispense advice to confused twenty-somethings about life, love, taxes, and the dangers of smoking.

BirthdayBut here’s the kicker: I am in no position to give advice to anybody. I should be happy, successful, and all that shit by this time, but as you can see, I log on to my interweblog thing every week to post dick jokes, which you people devour with such ferocity I sometimes wonder if anyone of you guys will devour my actual, physical dick with the same fervor. (to be perfectly clear, I was talking to my female readers. The hot ones who’d willingly get into bed with me without the aid of date rape drugs.)

Bah. This isn’t really the easiest thing to deal with, if you ask me. You know the feeling when you wake up, you realize that you’ve fucked up majorly and there’s probably no way to fix your life? Yeaaah, that’s the feeling I get every morning. Really not the happiest thing, if you ask me.

The strange thing about adulthood is that it’s when all these real-world problems come crashing on you. And in most cases, you’re not ready to deal with them, and nobody’s there to bail you out. It’s so fucking overrated. I oughta find the guy who told me that adulthood is probably the most awesome thing that’ll happen to me, second only to growing pubic hair (that also didn’t turn out too well, by the way).

I honestly hope I get out of this funk soon. In fact, I wrote this weeks in advance so I can see if this particular quarter-life crisis lasts until my birthday. I’m probably in some beach right now, drinking the blues away; until my liver just goes up to me and says “Fuck you Ade and fuck your melancholy. Stop making me work overtime, you cunt, I’m quitting.” Or maybe I’ll simply drown. I dunno. But whatever happens, there’s always the certainty of dick jokes ending up in anything I write for this blog of mine.

Also, blinkies

In the meantime, I’m going off, reflecting on the stupidity of life and all.

Also, happy birthday to me.


Posts of birthdays past:


  1. Happy belated b-day.
    I'll be 26 in a few weeks and I'm hoping it isn't as depressing as you make it sound.
    Hehehe…maybe I should plan to get wasted that night.

  2. you mean, you have the same birthday with william shakespeare ang Angel Locsin? The other day, my friend told me that I have the same birthday with Angel Locsin too.

  3. So yeah, I didn't greet you because I've been pretty much MIA, and also because I suck as a human being. Belated Happy Birthday Ade! šŸ˜€ Society is getting a lot younger, what with the whole "30s are the new 20s" thing. And don't worry, I'm never taking advice from you lulz jk. But seriously though, hope you feel better.

      You don't want to hear my advice? Then how am I going to recommend the best types of duct tape to stick to your eyebrows when you're bored, huh? (Trust me, I know a lot about human-duct tape contact)

  4. CM

    Welcome to the dark realm the late 20's! One day I shall be all thirty and shit and giving you advice on how to go about your late 20-hood while I take advice from people in their late 30s on how to go about my early 30-hood. Ok, that is messed up shit. Happy birthday na nga lang!

    • Ade

      Thanks for the late greeting! And yeah, that IS messed-up. I can imagine a ten-year old guiding those toddlers through life.

  5. JC

    Apart from me saying happy birthday, did you know that your site reads odd on an iphone browser? I mean, it's okay, but I can't comment. šŸ™

    • Ade

      OMG JC! I haven't seen you in my blog for ages!

  12. There's nothing a six-pack can't fix. Drink up man. And oh, happy beerday! =)

  13. Have a beer day, Ade! Don't worry I have predicted that there will be a zombie apocalypse in 2010, we'll never reach that geriatric stage called senility. Let's all continue with our hedonistic existence.

  14. Ade, pwede ka na magpakasal, hehe.


  15. You're not fucked up. The 26 years that have passed weren't a waste, I'm sure. šŸ™‚
    LOL. As soon as one gets past 20, it seems that EMO is the only way to be when it's birthday season, huh?

    I hope you get over this emo funk soon and have a really happy birthday. šŸ™‚ *hugs*

    • Whenever you think you're too old and it gets you down, always remember this: I'm still older than you.

  20. You want we should lock you up in a chamber and blow up your cells until you rematerialize as Dr. Manhattan and, thus, you'd never care about your age again?

    Happy birthday, Ade.

    • Ade

      It isn't about the age, really. It's about being totally helpless as life passes by too quickly.

  21. RJ


  22. Happy Birthday, hope you share some money from your "band payola" :~)

  23. Age is just a number they use to mess with your head, and life's not permanent—it isn't meant to be taken seriously. Keep kicking ass, and happy birthday to you, Ade!
