Having to decide what to eat for the rest of your life. It can turn into laziness which leads to unhealthy eating. I don’t wanna do all that cooking when I can just throw a pizza in the oven. Even though I know deep down I need to eat more veggies and not have food go to waste Edit: thanks for all the comments and ideas glad to know I wasn’t the only one stressed about it. It makes me thankful to my mom who always had a dinner idea. Also just to clarify when I mentioned veggies I was more implying eating healthier in general instead of easy frozen things or snacks. I apologize my word choice wasn’t great. I’m grateful for frozen veggies

How absolutely constant it all is. Even when you think you’re getting a break, like a vacation, you’re just doing other adult things you don’t normally do in your everyday life.

That you’ll spend a huge portion of your life doing things you really don’t want to do (work, cleaning, being around people you don’t like)
