- A young man recently took to Twitter to celebrate the fact that he still lives with his mom
- His tweet was accompanied by a picture of presumably his mom's house key
- Twitter users reacted hilariously to his post, to which many of them could relate
Not a day goes by without someone on social media sharing a picture of their latest achievement. Whether it be a new apartment, graduation or even buying their first car, it seems some people always have a reason to celebrate something.
While it's always great to see people smashing their goals and progressing in life, it can sometimes be a reminder that personally, you aren't reaching any milestones or making any progressive life goals.
This is probably why this youngster was determined to celebrate something - even if that something was being 19 and still living with his mom. @1jparrish took to Twitter to share a picture of some keys captioned, "19 and still living with my mom. God is good."
Many of his followers, who could relate to the pressure one sometimes feels to achieve certain goals in life, shared their thoughts and opinions of his funny but a little sad Twitter post. Here are some of their comments.
@BRUJlTAH insightfully shared:
"American culture is so weird, I'm 23 and almost all of my friends live with their parents, we're not moving out unless we have a year of rent saved up. And we do that without even having a huge college debt to pay. If that's being a loser according to American culture, so be it."
"I really don’t understand why people kick their kids out, fortunately my mom wasn’t one of them folks, but seriously life isn’t easy out there."
"Save that money for your own place. Just make sure you help out with some bills and groceries."
Briefly.co.za also reported George Ameyaw, a student of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) in Ghana, who supported himself through school with his motorcycle taxi (okada) business, has graduated as the top student.
In an interview with Briefly.co.za, the gentleman confirmed that he had a GPA of 3.96, which was the highest in the Faculty of Science and Environment Education. George studied BSc Integrated Science Education from UEW-Mampong campus in the College of Agriculture Education at the respected university.
His journey to becoming a motorcycle taxi rider started when his study-leave salary was cut. With no solid financial support coming in, George applied for a scholarship from MTN Ghana Foundation and also gathered some funds to purchase an 'okada' to start a business.
