8 Things I Don’t Miss About My Early 20s

My birthday was a few weeks ago, and getting older always makes me reflect on the past. I’m in my late 20s and, even though I occasionally go overboard looking for fine lines on my face, getting older has been pretty great me for me so far. Every once in a while, though, I miss my early 20s, when getting up “early” meant “before noon.” That said, I’d take my independent late 20s over my confused, anxious early 20s any day. Here’s some of the stuff I absolutely don’t miss.

      I’m 23 and I already don’t miss six of those. Guess it’ll take 2-3 more years for the last two to drop off.

      22 here, still feeling like a self-conscious, broke doofus. I would kill to fast forward several years to ensure this is all worth it.

      But then I’d miss all the “character building” my assistant position provides me, right?

      Heh, 22 I’ve halfway defeated lack self-confidence–today I told a hoard of guys to quiet down, next time I’ll holler it. So much more confident than I was half a year ago! Don’t have a job so, I guess entry-level is where I might wind up. And being broke is laaame. So, 2.5 left!

      24 here, life and mind seems to be stable but surely don’t miss early days which were like volcanos and tsunamis
