20 Reasons Your 20s Suck

Girls Season 2I’m doing this weird thing where I’m really focusing on the person I was, and the person I’ve become. It’s this introspective look that’s forcing me to realize that maybe I did make more than a few fuck-ups along the way, and maybe I should actually use them to avoid further mistakes.

So once again, in my series of letting go of my 20s, I present you 20 reasons why your 20s suck. Perhaps you won’t agree, or maybe you’ll find yourself screaming some sort of orgasmic “yes!” into the sky. I just wish I knew at 23, that no one really likes you at all (you know, because Blink 182 said so), and turning 30 was one hell of a relief.

      Everyone loves me becauseI’m 23 what are you talking about?!?!

        Just kidding. Even though you hate 20-somethings, this gallery is great.

        I don’t hate 20-somethings. I’d like to date a 28 year old. I think. OK. Maybe not.

      I’m so confused. You can drink when you’re 21, and is this from an post 20′s perspective or a currently 20′s perspective?

      • Amanda Chatel

        Sorry. I typed 21 by accident. You can’t drink until your 21 — so I updated it to that. The point was you’re considered an “adult” in your 20s, but yet that whole first year, you can’t even drink legally. I fixed it though.

        Ha, I just turned 21 and was so offended. “no one can tell me I can’t drink now! Oh hell no! I’ve waited too long!”

      • Amanda Chatel

        Haha! Drink away, girl!

    • Amanda

      Meh, I’m one of the few exceptions I think when it comes to relationships. I’ve been with my boyfriend since we were 15 so we’re very serious, the sex is great and he’s pretty great at head/knowing where my clit is, which I’m very happy about.

      30 was awesome! Much better than my 20′s. 31 was great too. I hit 32 today, and while I have spent the past month sunk in a bitter and anxiety ridden depression, today, it is not so bad. The Frank Sinatra song “It Was A Very Good Year” helped too.

        Happy birthday!

        Thank you!!

      15 is 100% my life. At least I have my husband? Which then of course leads into the babies question, which yes please before my eggs dry up! Only 2 1/2 more years of the 20′s for me.

      My twenties got drastically better in their second half. I can only hope this upward trend continues. Gonna be SO HAPPY by the time I’m 70.

      Fuck. #17

    • Cee

      Sigh…number 10. I wish I could make my whole family shut the fuck up about this. I’d eat a cupcake over this but I also suffer from 17.

      my 20′s were a blast! This is a pic of the ugliest woman in the world.

    • Carolina Cornejo

      great i am about to be 20 in a month

    • Magda Nunez

      My friend and I pretty much covered all these topics the other night whilst we were deep in our cups! And thats that I’m only turning 25… Barely half way to 30.

    • Scarlettmer

      Guess what, just wait until your 30′s and all the same shit is happening, but worse.
