Twenty-somethings is a lifestyle blog dedicated to capturing the most unedited version of my 20’s! So fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
Remember when you thought that turning eighteen automatically made you an adult? Yeah me too! Yet here I am, almost twenty and the thought of being considered an “adult” terrifies me. Our twenties are supposed to be this iconic time in your life, filled with self-discovery. But the truth is, the unknown is one scary bastard. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, that I realized how many people my age struggle with this.
It happened when I was sitting around the kitchen table, studying with my roommate. As I got up to put the kettle on, Andrea said something that caught my attention, “I am so not ready to turn twenty.” I paused for a minute and thought, HOLY SHIT, I feel the exact same way.
Your twenties are a confusing time. Are you paying off student debt? Building a career? Are you in a committed relationship? Are you doing something that makes you happy? Are you simply just trying to get by? If you are anything like me, these questions are overwhelming at best. There are so many expectations of what this decade ought to look like. How am I supposed to know what I want out of life? Up until now, my only responsibility has been making sure that I take something out of the freezer for dinner.
Where did all of these expectations suddenly come from? Time to redefine the rules. I wanted a space to document the most unedited version my twenties – one day at a time. No expectations and no judgement. Lucky for you, you have a front row seat!
