Today is my 21st birthday!

2 decades later & I’m grateful for the epicness that 21 brings because college is behind me, I have no debt, I’m learning a lot about moving on & letting go, I’m experiencing new beginnings, I’m dropping the dead weight & having priorities & it can only get better from here….
I’m 21 & I’m okay with this.

I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.
