as far as I’m concerned I’m “mid 20’s till 29 years +364 days”

I just transitioned to mid-20s and yea, I think everyone thinks they have it all figured out at all ages – we’re kinda dumb that way :). If anything, I’ve learned not to be smug about my life knowledge to people younger than me (although it’s rather limited at this point) because I’ve watched the older people in my life learn that just when you think you have it all down, life throws you a curveball.

I at least know how the next 5-6 years of my life will be, because I’m in a long graduate program that will take that long to complete. I think it is fun to dream about life after! There are many unknowns, but I am having a fantastic time enjoying my husband and my life as it unfolds 🙂

I’m currently 29 and thinking about where I was and who I was at 21/22 is so weird because my life is so different now.  I’ve gone through more changes in these few years than I thought were possible.  Not only external changes like my career situation, my marital status and my financial position but so many internal changes.  I’m very different from the person I was at 21 and I attribute this to more experiences, exposure to more people and situations and the normal aging and maturing process.

Yes to the buzzfeed, in particular the first one times 1000.  Except for me it seems like 3 drinks can do me in the next day if I’m not careful (as in I must stop drinking at 9 and drink 10 glasses of water and in bed by 11, ha!).

And yes, as a member of the late 20s brigade, your life changes in innumberable ways that are impossible to predict. But it’s almost all good! I am definitely much more true to myself, flaws and all, than I think I was in my early 20s.

@Mrs.babycat:  I’m the same age as you. I’ve yet to figure out anything of the things you mentioned especially my career, the only thing I know for sure right now is I have the right man for me and we’ll have long happy future together. I’m assuming that all the other stuff will just come to me over time, or maybe in a dream Tongue Out

I so don’t have it figured out :S

I’m 24, and just hit me… I’m getting older and I’m and adult and people expect things from me… it’s scary.

I’m finishing my degree this summer and after that I guess I’m finding a full time job. I don’t think I can buy a house, not in this economy, no. But I know I want one, and a puppie and kids and all that I think is normal for me, so wanting it it’s just the start, I guess 😛

Lol that’s all so true… At 29 especially. 

 

I am so different to who I was in my early 20s, back then I was just a kid.

Well I’ll be 25 this summer, so I guess that means I’m in my mid-twenties.  I know I’ve still got a long way to go, but I feel like I’ve learned so much in the past 2 years.  When I was 20-23, I thought I had life all figured out.  Now that life has slapped me around a bit, I’ve developed a more realistic view of the world and my place in it.  I no longer think I know it all.  I listen more than I speak. But still, I’m more confident than I’ve ever been.  I no longer say “what I’ll never do”.  I’m a lot less judgmental of other people.  I care more about others.  My relationships are stronger.  I finally have a career.  The list goes on. . . . 

 

 

Oh and that buzzfeed post has got a lot right.  I certainly can’t drink/party like I used to.  And damn these 10lbs I’ve been trying to lose! Weight came off so much easier a few years ago.

Honestly….. I am 25 and sometimes I don’t feel any different to when I was 18. Yeah sure, I have ‘accomplishments’ – I’ve got a professional career, a house, nice car and am getting married. But ‘inside’ – I still just feel like a big kid! I still want to go to music fesivals, concerts, drink too much, eat crappy food, take the weekend as it comes, etc. I don’t want to confine myself to a life of Martha Stewart crafts and a 9:00pm bed time because I ‘ticked over’ from 24 to 25.

See – I’m almost 26 now (couple weeks from my b-day so solidly in my mid-20s) and I really don’t feel any different from when I was in my early 20s.  Sure, I’ve gotten married, am in a different financial situation, changed jobs, moved, bought a house, etc but in terms of “inside”, I’m really the same.

 

Granted, even at 22, I related to all of the “late-20s” GIFs from the Buzzfeed article so maybe I just transitioned really early! 🙂
