The Struggles Of Being In Your Twenties

I don’t know about you but I spent a lot of my adolescence wanting to be older. Now I’m here, I’m not so sure it’s all I thought it was cracked up to be. The struggles of being this age I’ve found so far are…

  • Being too old to mess around all day on games with friends but usually too young to have your shit together
  • A lot of the people you know are getting married, getting mortgages and having babies and still being there feeling uncomfortable about that
  • The older generation questioning when you’re going to have babies
  • Having to explain to the older generation that we’re in the year 2016 and it is no longer a life expectation to have fucking kids
  • Worrying that you’re running out of time to sort your life out
  • (For women) Having a delayed period and irrationally freaking out that you could be pregnant
  • Not knowing what to do with the rest of your life
  • Spending most of your time worrying about money and the rest of it spending it on things to cheer yourself up from being so stressed from worrying
  • The week leading up to pay day and having to strategically plan out your food budget on £4.76
  • BILLS
  • Living off “Morrison’s Savers” food
  • Having an existential crisis while lying on the floor and realising you’re an actual human being with a life and you can do anything and everything you’ve ever wanted (slightly stolen from danisnotonfire http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1jaY136B_k) and your twenties is the time to do that and then being absolutely amazed yet terrified by that thought
  • Realising your whole life is actually pointless when you think about it
  • Knowing that one day you’re going to die and gradually getting closer and closer to it each day

In all seriousness, I am joking! I’M FINE, haha, It’s just something that has been on my mind a lot lately and I wanted to laugh about it to myself. We’ll all figure it out someday.

    I can completely relate to this post! I’m more or less half way through my twenties now and I’ve spent my teenage years wishing I was here and now I want my life to slow down! I know being in your twenties is still young but I can completely relate. I’ve had a stalk of your blog and I’ve followed you, I can’t wait to read more!
