The moment you graduate high school, time begins to go a million miles an hour next thing you know… you’re 25…freak out! Then by the time you figure out your a next move, you’re 30!
You’re gonna look back at you 20’s and think it was amazing no matter what happened BUT having sucky times is a necessary process to reaching your wise and fruitful 30’s!
1. You’re flat bum-ass broke! –
When you literally are eating cans of tuna for breakfast lunch and dinner just so you still can pay your bills to keep your phone in service. That $8 sandwich you skipped for lunch is an extra $8 towards your flight to Europe or your next drinking binge. Just remember there’s plenty of time to eat filet mignon and salmon later in life!
2. You get your heart CRUSHED –
THIS SUCKS! But when you feel it… GO ALL IN & DO NOT HESITATE! Love is an unbelievable experience! Yes it is gonna SUCK when your beloved turns out to be a down-right douchebag but years down the track you’re going to realise it was a blessing in disguise as you always learn something about yourself through this process AND most importantly what you’re worth! Just remember that scumbags come into your life for a reason, be thankful it turned out the way it did!
3. You CRUSH someones heart-
THIS SUCKS EVEN MORE! When you realise that a relationship just is not working but the feeling isn’t mutual, knowing that you have a break someones heart is the most horrible feeling in the entire world, especially if they didn’t do anything wrong! But not having ‘dem feels’ for that someone who’s meant to be your someone special is a sign and breaking it off is a necessary evil! Sometimes you gotta be the bad guy!
4. You sleep on multiple couches –
Sometimes finding the perfect place to call your own takes time… or it’s a case of finding somewhere cheap enough that’ll approve your income to be a tenant! So in the mean time having those special people who let you crash on their couch or if you’re lucky enough to have THE BEST FRIENDS EVER (mitch and amanda 😉 ) who’ll insist you sleep in their bed!
5. You visit the Dr. for “just a check up”-
Going to your Dr. and asking for the daunting STI blood and urine test is embarrassing BUT SOOOOO NECESSARY! Anyone that says they haven’t done this is lying or needs to get their shit together and go because let’s face it, in your 20’s shit goes down, sometimes shit we can’t remember or really regret! But either way it’s a quick pee and a prick, sometimes a life-saving pee and a prick!
6. You work 3 jobs –
Unless you’re blessed to have mummy and daddy pay for everything and you never have to pay rent, working 3 jobs like a crazy bitch is so annoying but the end result is SOOOO worth it! Like myself there are some things in life I ain’t missing out on and money is DEFINITELY not gonna be the reason why! So you work your ass off for 6 months to afford that new car or to go on that trip to Europe because just like a wise man once said “You can always get more money, you can’t get more time” – Mitchell MacGregor Bailey 😉
7. You have debt doom –
Can’t afford to go away to Carnivale in Brazil straight after you came back from USA?! THAT’S WHY GOD INVENTED CREDIT CARDS! Be smart about it, 0%p.a. on purchased exist for a reason! Live now and pay later! Be reckless, when you’re 20-somethings you can get away with it!
8. You date the dick-head –
Dating dick-heads is a good thing! In fact…date as many as you can! Not only does it teach you that most people are dick-heads but it will also teach you that the great ones are 1 in a million, so when you finally find a gem! HOLD ON TO THEM and treat them like the precious stone that they are! By that point, you finally would’ve earned it!
9. You fight with your loved ones –
We all have had that fight with our parents or siblings about our life choices, where they all have their opinions about what you should do and always manage to make you feel as if your not going anywhere in life! So you bite back and get protective… next thing you know someone’s disowning someone then someone’s slamming doors! But always remember they only care and want the best for you so don’t say or do something that’ll cause major damage! This is your journey but try to involve them wherever you can, they’re your family!
10. You cry like a bitch –
Times are gonna be tough, they’re gonna really suck, to the point where you think there’s no hope! SO CRY! CRY IT OUT AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! Getting that emotion out will clear your head and help with think about the next step! But the most important thing to remember is that now’s the time to take risks, now’s the time be a dumb bitch, now’s the time to make mistakes…so make every mistake known to man… because you can, you’re 20-something 🙂 !
