“Your 20’s are for being selfish!” They said.
“Party and play in your 20’s, don’t settle down until your 30s!” They said.
Your 20’s aren’t a free pass to be an asshole.
It's not an excuse to be shit faced Thursday-Sunday, not taking your education or your job seriously and treating the people you date like shit? Absolutely not.
Go out and drink a little, meet strangers and spend time in new places.
You can experience life without trying every drug known to man.
Also, fun fact, a criminal record does NOT go away just because you’re in your 20’s.
You’re still a grown ass adult and you should act like one.
Pay off your debts and learn good money habits so you don’t start your 30’s with a 500 credit score and debt up to your eyeballs.
If you learn to have self-control when you drink and go out in your 20’s, your 30’s won’t have to be a wake-up call, a decade to recover from or a trip to rehab.
Waking up on your 30th birthday single, in debt, hungover and sad that you have nothing to show for the last decade of your life.
You end up rushing around in your dating life, panicking and settling for the first person who appears, starting a family later than you ever really wanted to and with no money to support your sudden urge to get married and procreate.
Don’t waste away an entire decade of your life on things that you will look back on and want to smack yourself for.
Make memories that you can look back on and smile about for years to come. Use this time wisely, you deserve it.
Set yourself up to kick ass in your 30’s, your future self will thank you.
