I moved to another state…away from my entire family and moved in with Fiance. Also, this is a time for a lot of firsts for me: first time on a budget, first time not working since I lived at home, first puppy, but I think the biggest change in my twenties has been dealing with digestion issues and becoming vegan! 


Good thread, by the way. I’m interested to see what the other responses are!

I’m in the first half of my 20s.  Before I was 20, we bought our first house.  We got married this year.  I have gone back to school.  I’m hoping to find a new job and we want to buy a new house in a year or so.  Those are the only big changes I’m expecting.

I had my daughter when I was 21, and my son last year, at 23. They have completely changed my life- for the better of course. I hope in the coming years I will have a career I love, instead of a job I hate!

Graduated from college, moved in with a boyfriend, broke up with that boyfriend and moved back home, met new (and way better) boyfriend, got a pet bunny (he is now 7 years old!), got my PhD, got engaged, moved across the country with my fiance, and started a new job.

…oh and also I’ll be getting married to round off the decade 🙂

It hasn’t all been easy, but I’m really happy with where my 20’s have taken me.

Im also in my first half of my 20s, and this year especially has been crazy!! In august i had my first baby and became a stay at home mommy. which leads to me being finacially dependent on my Fiance, which was a huge struggle for me because i have always been very independent since we moved in together right after highschool. I got engaged in October!! I became an aunt in September!  My dad had a stroke last spring which brought as a lot closer than we have been in years…Its been a crazy busy year, but honestly my 20s have been better than i ever imagined!!

Wow, I never realized what a busy decade it has been and will be for me, I’m 27 so I have a couple more years.  I studied abroad in Spain when I was 20 and turned 21 there, it was great.  Then I graduated college, got my first real job and hated it, around that time began dating the FH and it started off as a long distance relationship.  So I went back to school for my master’s and moved up north where he was and lived there for 3 years.  Then I graduated grad school, we moved back to LA (hometown), then I found my real first professional job, and then we and got engaged less than a year later.  And now here we are a bit less than 3 months away from the big day!

Bought a house and got married.  Those are the good things.

Most of the other stuff has been negative and has been a direct result of grad school.  Health problems, stress, sadness with career, etc.

Nothing yet. When I was 18 I flew alone to the Dominican Republic that’s pretty much it. Soon enough hopefully I’ll graduate college and go to law school or be hit with the reality that I might not be able to pay for it not even with loans and have to work great timing for all of that ha

I am currently 21 and so much has happened to me so far! I met my fiance when I was 18. We recently renovated our condo, then sold it and we are currently building a house, he has his own business, I am graduating from college and starting my career. We are getting married in August and hopefully will start a family not too long after we are married. And when I have my career going!

My 20’s have been very exciting so far! 🙂

And congrats to all you other bee’s with all of your accomplishments!!

Well, the first 4 years of being in my 20’s (I’m 23 but I’m counting 20) has been pretty easy- graduated college, getting married at 24, moving to a new city, going back to school, getting a living wage job (ha)… yeah, 24 is going to be ROUGH! And FUN!
