How You Know You’re Definitely a Twenty-Something

I’m back for my midweek post, and I want to talk about the idea of the twenty-something. It’s a word we use to denote an age group, my age group… but now it has come to encompass a meaning entirely of its own. It’s a culture. It’s a phase of life and it’s a way of living. Here are the signs that you are probably definitely a twenty-something. They may vary.

You probably don’t know what you’re doing with your life. You might have some vague idea, or know what you want to do, but you haven’t been hired for your dream job yet.

You’re disheveled. Your appearance, your state of mind, everything. It probably has to do with all that rest you never get.


At least one of your exes is married. Not saying that there’s anything wrong with that at all! But it’s still a lot to take in because we’re at the point where we’re supposed to be happy when people get married and not look at them like stars of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. 

Babies are filling up your newsfeed. Quickly. Sometimes it’s kind of like… that’s a lot of babies. But on the other hand, they’re cute. So keep them coming, parents.

You consider Easy Mac a balanced meal.

You arrange your schedule around when Pretty Little Liars comes on Hulu. …yeah.


You’re socially awkward around older, wiser people who have their lives together.

You have debt. Lots and lots of debt.

You have to seriously think about whether it’s worth it to pay extra for guac and yet you buy extra clothes online so you’ll get free shipping.

You desperately try to keep up with the cool lingo the kids are using these days… but you’re starting to fade.

Responsibilities are just not… no thanks.


You are surprised to realize you’re occasionally sometimes capable of scheduling appointments and interviews by yourself.

Commitment. You don’t know how you feel about it? In general?

Pretty much everything that has the ability to make you happy comes from Target.

Free things light a special fire within your soul.

You really understand 2007 Britney. Like really really understand.

Also, your stress level is pretty much always “I lost my diamond earring in the ocean” Kim Kardashian.



Going to bed early is 1:30 A.M.

A hot date is pretty much pizza + Netflix.

You’re tired… but you’re excited. You’ve got a lot ahead of you, you just have to hold on tight!
