Have you ever been in a situation where you hear or see a quote and you automatically think, “yep, that is me.” Below, we will go over some Tumblr posts that definitely show that you are in your twenties.
“Just When I Think I Am Getting My Life Together”
This is an important quote because when you are in your twenties, everything may seem lie it is going perfect and then you hit an obstacle in the way. This happens to everyone and it is a learning curve.
If you find that this quote fits you well, you should rethink what you are doing and then try to fix the situation. The better you prepare for things, the better off you will be.
But remember, hiccups happen.
“Just When I Think I’ve Figured Out Adult Life”
Just like the above quote, you finally think you have something figured out and it slaps you in the face with a surprise. It is important that you roll with the punches and figure the situation out the best way you know how.
The more you dwell on something, the harder it will be to grow up. Everyone expects a twenty something year old to be learning and not have everything together all at once.
“I’m in the Prime of My Life but Have Crippling Debt”
This is such a funny quote because it is true. When you are in your twenties, you have likely graduated from college or you took out too many loans. The average twenty year old has $27,000 in student loan debt. You will find yourself in a large amount of debt quickly and you will soon realize that you have to pay it all back.
Fortunately, you are able to limit how much debt you take out and you will have a lifetime to pay it back. If you are in your twenties, you are doing great if you have a minimal amount of debt.
“Entry-Level Jobs Requiring Experience”
One of the hardest things for twenty something year olds is that you finally graduate with your degree, enter the workforce, and find you need experience. It is even worse when the job you are applying for is the first step in the door and thy require you to have years of experience. Most employers look for at least 2 years of relevant experience before hiring.
Now that you cannot get into your career right away, you have to take on a lesser job to pay the bills and get the experience needed just to re-enter into an entry-level position.
“When Someone Asks for an Adult, I Look Around for One Too”
This is another funny quote that explains adult life in your twenties. When something happens and people ask for an adult, you automatically start looking around for an adult too. But, you quickly realize you are an adult as well.
When you think of the word “adult,” you instantly start to think of someone who is older and wiser than you, but you are finally considered an adult – like you always wanted to be.
“I Want Food for Christmas”
Once you hit the ripe age of twenty and beyond, you suddenly realize what is more important – food. Groceries are something that become a Christmas present for those in their twenties. No more with the Louis Vuitton purses or the Rolex watches. You simply realize how poor you actually are.
“I Live Paycheck to Paycheck”
When you are in your twenty somethings, you will quickly realize that you live from paycheck to paycheck or even less sometimes. You will soon be used to seeing a small or negative number in your bank account and having to scrounge for pennies will no longer bother you.
As you age, you will find that everything changes. What you once thought adulthood was, you will learn that it is nothing like you thought. It is important that you attempt to manage your finances and life as strictly as possible. The more debt you incur now, the more stress you will have as you continue to age through your twenties.
