20 Things I Learned In My 20’s


A Letter From Our Editor:

My twenties were a decade full of life, love, and lessons. I’ve managed to overcome situations I thought [at the moment] I’d never get over. I’ve moved from state-to-state seeking the ideal home [only to find I was craving a new version of myself, not a new location], and I’ve fallen in [and out of] love enough times to recognize when it’s real. Long story short, my twenties were a journey I wasn’t quite prepared for, but am thankful I embarked on.

Now, as I enter my thirties with complete confidence, I feel it’s my duty to pass along a few tidbits to those who are still feeling a little unsure about the rollercoaster decade. So take it from me, you know, a mature 30-year-old [it’s been 72 hours], these few tips will help guide you in the right direction and make your exit/entrance into a new decade as smooth as possible. But in the meantime, have fun, make memories, and embrace the everchanging growth your twenties has to offer.

  1. Find a hobby that keeps you in shape, mentally and physically.
  2. Save more money than you spend. You’ll need it sooner than later.
  3. Travel. Go to as many countries as you can while your only responsibility is you.
  4. The first argument you have with your S.O is usually the last argument you have before you break up.
  5. Alcohol isn’t worth it. It ages you faster than you can imagine (think wrinkles and excess weight gain).
  6. Drink a lot of water; it’s truly the elixir of life.
  7. Moisturize your skin every single time you take a shower; your future self will thank you – trust me.
  8. Call your parents as much as you can, just like you they are getting older too.
  9. Your friends will start dropping like flies – let them.
  10. Once you hit 25, your twenties are technically your thirties – welcome.
  11. Learn how to grow your money. Educate yourself on stocks, cryptocurrencies, and investing.
  12. Get a dog or a pet – it’ll save you from the idea of having a child to save a relationship.
  13. Date as much as you can; this is how you learn yourself and what you value in a relationship.
  14. Expect at least two solid relationships; one toxic and one healthy.
  15. Experiment sexually – you’ll be thankful for the memories when you’re older.
  16. Move out of your home state; this is the best way to grow.
  17. You will get fired – it builds character, and 10/10 it puts you on the right path to your dream career.
  18. The first time you stand up for yourself will spark a new level of confidence in you –embrace it.
  19. At least one person close to you will pass away. So, cherish everyone you love a little more than you did yesterday.
  20. Fall in complete and absolute consuming love with yourself.
