5 comics that sum up the challenges — and hilarity — of adulthood.

Entering adulthood isn't always easy.

From work to personal relationships, a lot of things can change as you jump into "the real world." Artist Caitlin Quijano gets that, so she combined art and humor to create images that other young adults could relate to.

"As a 20-something figuring out work, marriage, and finances, the demands and challenges of adulthood are something I think about a lot," Quijano told Upworthy in an email. "I've always loved to de-stress through comedy, and that is reflected in the topics I cover."


Many of Quijano's comics reflect situations that might be quite familiar.

2. Time spent hanging out with friends might become ... er ... limited.


3. The reality of work life may be a bit different from what you imagined in college.


4. But with each new venture, you'll probably begin by giving it your all.


5. Ultimately, your finish line may look a little different from those around you, and that's totally fine. It's your life to live. Make it a good one.
