Why Being In Your 20’s Is Awesome

This is a fantastic article. Reminds me to slow down, don’t be so eager to be all grown up, enjoy this period of time in my life while it lasts, because I won’t be able to do the things I do now while I’m young and not tied down.

My favourite parts of the article:

This is what your twenties are for — to feel and see as much as you can, to take advantage of not being tied down to anything and anyone and to go balls to the wall with everything that you do. ||

Being in your twenties allows you to start carving out the life you want for yourself. Everything is on your terms now which seems daunting but is actually liberating. For the first time in your life you’re the boss. ||

You better enjoy every lame ass party, every awkward kiss, every 5 AM hangover, every drug experience, every crappy apartment, because one day it will all be gone and you’ll just be left with the pictures and the bruises and nothing else. Youth is fu**ing magic. Don’t you get it? Look at your skin! Touch it. Look at your smooth legs and stomach. Grab it. When you’re older, you’ll want all of this again so bad. You’ll possibly spend so much money to get some semblance of it back. Now it’s yours for free. ||

We’re not stuck. Even if it feels like we are, it’s not true. We’re the opposite of stuck. As twentysomethings, we’re constantly moving — apartments, relationship, cities, jobs. Anything is possible. ||

You should love every single moment of this hot mess of a decade. Chances are you’ll miss it before you even get to say “I’m 30.”

  1. Dang…missed out. ;)
    Though I’d say certain things don’t need to be experienced…esp if addictive. Don’t want your 20’s to curse your 30’s and onwards either. Some things just cost too much to “just try it”.
