Latinos On The Internet Are Poking Fun At What It Means To Be A Mature Adult

As you grow older, there are a few things here and there that start to change, and all of a sudden you feel like you’re no longer a little kid — you’re an adult. A grown, mature and wise adult. Well, at least you think you’re an adult.

Check out what these people on Twitter had to say in response to the hashtag #SabesQueMadurasteCuando, which means: “You know you’ve matured when…”

Some may sound silly, but they’re totally relatable.

If there’s one thing that determines how mature you are, it’s the level of involvement your mom has when it comes to your doctor appointments.


If you’re the one that responds when the doctor asks questions, instead of letting your mom respond, then you’re ~pretty~ mature. Now if you schedule your OWN doctor appointments, then it’s official — you are GROWN.

And if you’re responsible enough to go inside the doctor’s office by yourself, then you can handle anything.

…like owning a copy of keys to your own house.

Which is why your parents start to give you more serious responsibilities.


You know, things such as being in charge of holding the rope for the piñata, rather than waiting in line to hit the piñata like all of the younger kids.

And the closer you get to becoming an adult, the more you start to change as a person.

All of a sudden, after the piñata breaks, you no longer have the urge to throw yourself onto the floor to try to get as many candies possible.

Things that used to scare you as a kid, don’t scare you anymore.


You can finally turn the lights off in a room and walk out calmly instead of running out because you’re scared of the dark and think a monster is going to get you.

And things that you used to love, all of a sudden seem silly and a waste of time.


Now you don’t spend your time doodling the name of your crush all over your notebooks.

Truth is, the older you get, the more you realize that you have zero time to waste.


Instead of wasting your time time on boys and trying to find love, you’d rather spend your time hustling and making money.

You also start to realize that your circle of real friends is a lot smaller than it seems.

Which is why you end up deleting over 240 “friends” from your social media accounts.

And as much as you love your small circle of friends, once you’re an adult, you’d much rather sleep than go out to party with them.


And when you’re out at the bar or club, all you can think about is your precious, comfortable, soft bed.

…because going out to party, or even worse, hosting a party, is just too much of a hassle.?


Instead of thinking about how much fun a party will be, you start to think about all of the mess you will have to clean up the day after.

Some of the things that you used to enjoy, start to actually become more of a burden.

Yeah, being absent in elementary school was fun and easy. It’s also fun and easy in college but if you miss one day of class in college, you miss three assignments, a pop quiz and a two-hour lecture of notes.

Overall, becoming an adult is all about growing and learning.


You start to admit when you’re wrong and accept the consequences, rather than blame others for your mistakes.

You learn about things in life that you had never realized before…


Like the fact that Super Mario actually breaks all of the bricks using his fist not his head. I know, mind-blowing.

But most importantly, you learn to let go of things that no longer benefit you.


Such as Pokemon. JK, Pokemon is LIFE. ??

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

A Twitter User Found Shrimp Tails And Baked Rat Caca In His Cinnamon Toast Crunch

A Twitter User Found Shrimp Tails And Baked Rat Caca In His Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Yeah… this is one cereal box prize we’ll pass on.

Once upon a time, it was considered to be a real treat if you found something that wasn’t food in your breakfast cereal box. From sticker tattoos and puzzles to action figures, as kids, a cereal box presented quite a bit in the way of motivation when waking up early on school mornings.

Recently, however, a man came across a surprise in a General Mills Cinnamon Toast Box that’ll be sure to make you think the next time you reach for those Wheeties.

Writer and comedian Jensen Karp says he found shrimp tails, string, and what appears to be mouse poop in his Cinnamon Toast cereal box.

In a tweet he posted on Monday, which has since gone viral and retweeted more than 11,500 times, the comedian shared the strange discoveries. “Ummmm @CTCSquares – why are there shrimp tails in my cereal? (This is not a bit),” he asked in a tweet on Monday.

It didn’t take long for the Cinnamon Toast cereal account to reply that the shrimp-looking things were, not shrimp tails but rather chunks of cinnamon and sugar.  “After further investigation with our team that closely examined the image, it appears to be an accumulation of the cinnamon sugar that sometimes can occur when ingredients aren’t thoroughly blended,” the account replied. “We assure you that there’s no possibility of cross-contamination with shrimp.”

In response, Karp tweeted “Ok, we’ll after further investigation with my eyes, these are cinnamon coated SHRIMP TAILS, you weirdos,” he wrote. “I wasn’t all that mad until you now tried to gaslight me?”

It didn’t take long for Twitter to express how unimpressed they were by the brand’s explanation with a barrage of memes and replies.

Twitter users also expressed concern for those with shellfish allergies.

Karp went onto share more photos of his cursed cereal, this image showing what appears to be baked-on rat poo. Another tweet showed a string found in the same box. One user replied to the images sharing that it was possible that a mice or rat burrowed into the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal ingredients and brought in a few of their own belongings.

In a final follow-up photo of the other bag included in the family-sized box of cereal, Karp revealed what “appears to include … dental floss.”

Though the saga continues, Karp revealed that the company asked him to send them the product so that they could get down to the root of the problem.
