If You're Twenty Something, You Need To Read This

April 17, 2017

I'm feeling 'giphy' again. I find them weirdly satisfying, so I'm sharing what life feels like at the raw age of 26. Can any of my 20+ somethings relate? 

 

1. CAREER

 

Expectation

You're supposed to be far in your career by now with like a six figure salary. I mean, you're destined to be living your life like Taylor Swift.

 

 

 Reality

You're right out of graduate school, applying for 100 jobs a week, and still waiting for HR to get back to you... Question. Do they really read every application they get?

 

 

 

2. SEX APPEAL

 

Expectation

You're channeling that "I'm wife material" vibe and letting the world know "I'm in my prime."

 

 

Reality

Sometimes it's just way too hard to be you...

 

 

 

3. MOTHER NATURE CALLS

 

Expectation

Being a Mom like...

 

 

Reality

Being a mom like... 

 

 

 

4. HOME

 

Expectation 

Having your own place and designing everything to go so perfectly with like... everything. And parties for days. Just like a fairytale.

 

 

Reality 

Living back home with the parents (because you're jobless and homeless) waiting for someone to be impressed with your Master's degree... Feeling just a tad stuck. Thank the Lord for blogging.

 

 

 

5. MARRIAGE

 

Expectation

Flaunting your engagement ring, posting your couples photoshoot all over Instagram, wedding planning, buying a house, maybe even having cute his and her pillows... You know, the whole frenzy over the perfect romance these days.

 

 

Reality

Swiping left left left... Where are the good ones? Still looking.

 

 

6. ADULTING

 

Expectation

You have your life together like ...

 

 

Reality

Nope, still figuring it all out ... But no shame in that.

(Honestly, even though it's all a work in progress, I'm loving every minute of it).
