Doing something grown-up and responsible
I'm so proud of you for finally adulting by spending that money on things you need.

Adulting (v): to do grown up things and hold responsibilities such as, a 9-5 job, a mortgage/rent, a car payment, or anything else that makes one think of grown ups.
Used in a sentence: Jane is adulting quite well today as she is on time for work promptly at 8am and appears well groomed.

Being a responsible adult. Used by immature 20-somethings who are proud of themselves for paying a bill.
So tired from adulting! I went to my 8-5 job today! Look at me!

Adulting (v): to carry out one or more of the duties and responsibilities expected of fully developed individuals (paying off that credit card debt, settling beef without blasting social media, etc). Exclusively used by those who adult less than 50% of the time.
I was going to buy a sack of Blue Dream but I finally got my oil changed instead. Adulting!

A puerile term used by idiots who think they deserve praise for being normal.
19 year old girl: "So, lyk, I've been adulting lately. Today I managed to go to the doctor without my Mom!"
Me: "Do you even have two brain cells to rub together?"

28 year old man: "So today I spent only 15 hours playing league of legends rather than my usual 18 hours, and actually went and picked up some groceries for Mom! I even said hello to a girl on the way to the store! I'm adulting!"
Me: "Kill yourself immediately."
