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. ??

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Latino Twitter Gifted The World With These Seriously Good Inauguration Memes

Google/NBC

It’s official: the United States has a new president! Yesterday was Inauguration Day in the U.S. and we welcomed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the 49th Vice President.

It was an historic day full of major milestones for the country and the world – and that was made obvious by the sheer amount of attention paid to the day’s events. One has to look no further than the amount of memes that were produced in the wake of the inauguration, from Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga to Bernie Sanders and the adiós to Donald and Melania Trump.

As usual, Latino Twitter showed up with the memes and left many of us on the floor laughing our a** off. These are some of the honorable mentions from a day full of historical moments and incredible memes.

Tío Bernie may have stolen the spotlight from President Biden with his very practical inauguration attire.

The long-serving Vermont senator was there to watch proceedings, bracing the D.C. cold to witness Biden being sworn in as president. To withstand the cold climes, Sanders came prepared in a big old reliable coat and mittens – with his inaugural look and general demeanour waiting for the event to begin capturing the creativity of the internet through a series of ‘Cold Bernie’ memes.

Bernie was everywhere!

The former presidential candidate was popping up in all sorts of places as the Internet memed him into a frenzy.

And he was all of us…

The former aspiring presidential candidate later addressed the attention his outfit was getting in an interview with Gayle King, noting: ‘You know in Vermont we know something about the cold and are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm and that’s what I did today.’

The Internet has even created a website where you can insert Tío Bernie into any scene you want with Google Maps.

And yes, it actually works!

Michelle Obama told us all how she felt without telling us all how she felt.

When Michelle and Barack Obama departed the White House in 2017 to make way for Donald and Melania Trump to take over the reigns, Michelle did not hide how difficult and upsetting she found the moment. So a lot of people were thrilled to see the Michelle we know and love, happy, thrilled and generally paving the way at the 2021 inauguration ceremony.

Lady Gaga giving the world Hunger Games vibes…

Lady Gaga had the honour of performing the American national anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and, of course, she ‘killed’ it. The dramatic and rousing performance was made even better by her custom-made Schiaparelli gown, adorned in the US colours and complete with patriotic hidden meanings. However some thought they’d seen it – particularly the brooch – before…

Then there were the adiós Trump memes that left Mexican Twitter on fire!

A la verga! Adiós, Señor Trump! 👋

This one is too good!

I. Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

Mexican Facebook was also on fire!

This Twitter user is too right, Mexican Facebook really is undefeated!

And some want to reclaim red hats!

If you could bring back red hats, what would yours say?

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

We’ve all experienced it before–the nervousness of meeting your partner’s parents. And if you’re in an interracial relationship, that nervousness grows exponentially.

That’s why this video of a young Latino man who is hesitant about entering his white girlfriend’s Trump-supporting family’s house has gone viral.

It’s #relatable.

The video starts off with the unnamed boyfriend narrating what’s happening to him as his girlfriend practically drags him into her parent’s home.

In Spanish, he says “I’m going to visit my girlfriend’s parent’s house. The house is very beautiful and she wants me to go inside. But I’m not going to do that because there’s a problem.”

At this point, he pans up to focus on a “Trump” sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.

He turns the camera around to show his own very worried face. The young man’s girlfriend tries to assure him that everything is okay, promising him that her parents are “going to like you”.

The young man tells her to go on without him because he “doesn’t want to die” today. “Maybe tomorrow, yes. But today–no,” he says.

His girlfriend keeps insisting he follow her in until he finally says: “They don’t like me!” before zooming in on the “Trump/Pence” sign one final time. The comedic timing is *chef’s kiss* impeccable.

The video is captioned “This Spanish remake of ‘Get Out’–a witty nod to the 2017 horror film.

As a refresher, “Get Out” centers on a young Black man in an interracial relationship who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend. Soon, he realizes the family is not quite as idyllic as they’re pretending to be. Before long, he realizes his life is in danger.

The movie accurately depicted the real-life horror of racism and white supremacy through a cinematic lens. Phrases like “the sunken place” (the place the main character went when he’s paralyzed by his girlfriend’s mother) became cultural shorthand for: the “place an oppressed person goes when they have become silent or compliant to their own oppression” (thanks Urban Dictionary).

Internet commentators chimed in with their own thoughts and opinions about the super relatable video.

One Reddit user knew exactly how the young man felt. “As a biracial person who dated a girl from a very conservative Republican family, they never let me forget that I was biracial,” he said. “They brought it up almost every day.”

Another knew the struggles of having family members with different views from their own: “I have friends and family members that have been radicalized.. it’s very difficult to have a conversation about anything anymore that doesn’t end with vitriol.”

Another Reddit user had more sympathy for the man’s girlfriend. “I feel bad for the girl honestly,” they said. “We may be able to choose who we befriend, but we can never choose our parents.”
