Being in Your Early Twenties

Top: H&M Trend | Skirt: Monki | Boots: Doctor Martens

Being in your early twenties is a strange thing. These years might be the most confusing and most complicated years you'll go through. You're in those awkward gap years between childhood and adulthood. I like to think of it as the teenage years of our adulthood. While our actual teenage years are behind us, we're still skating around trying to find our balance and purpose in the world.

I don't have a lot of experience in the adult field as I'm only 22 but I have been around long enough to notice that we're still kids in the eyes of older people. We have lived long enough to qualify as "grown-ups", but we're far from grown up. We're told that this is the time we should be traveling, experiencing, and learning. We're supposed to be falling in love, having our hearts broken, climbing mountains, and spending our paychecks on drinks on friday nights. I don't fit into this perfectly painted picture of a stereotypical millennial. All I do is study. I look at PDF files and books all day and all night. I write essays and papers on my laptop for what seems like an eternity until my eyes fall shut and I collapse in front of the screen. Then I wake up the next day and repeat the process. There is literally nothing youth-like about my life and I feel like I'm missing out BIG TIME. I'm not sure how long this feeling of uncertainty will last, but I will keep you posted.
