10 Signs You Are In Your 20's

10 Signs You Are In Your 20's

So long, teenage years!


When you were younger, you might have thought you would spend your 20s traveling around the world, or living in New York spending all of your free time in a coffee shop (or maybe that was just me)...

Yet when you finally reach your 20s, you realize you're broke and most likely still living at home.

Being 20 is like being in purgatory. Too old to be a teenager but too young to be considered an adult.

These are the 10 tell-tale signs you are in purgatory, my friend.

1. You couldn't care less about the gossip said about you.

All those comments you hear behind your back roll off of you as if you were covered in butter. Besides, you already know how fabulous you really are.

2. You become excited to do absolutely nothing on the weekends.

You realize that there is no better relationship than you and your couch. Don't even get me started on Netflix.

3. You fear checking your bank account.

Some how all of your money gets sucked out of your bank account. You either spend it on food or bills, and no matter how much you try to save it, money is tighter than Harry Styles' jeans.

4. You constantly get asked about your non-existent love life.

You would rather jump off a cliff than go to family dinners because you don't want to explain to your family that you aren't dating anyone. Then, to top that, you get the advice from your weird single uncle. Yikes.

5. Dating becomes ten times harder.

For some reason it seems that there are no single people your age. Either everyone is in a relationship, or way out of your league. Now you realize why all those dating websites were made.

6. You kick the fake friends out of your life.

You realized most of your friendships were based on seeing them on a daily basis rather than actual friendship.

7. You start to think that new music sounds horrible.

Enough said.

8. You have to balance work, school, and social life all on one plate.

Looks like feeling stressed and overwhelmed is common in your twenties. Also feeling like you are carrying the whole world on your back. Sometimes your day could feel like you really are in The Hunger Games.

9. You're too cool to be old, but too old to be cool.

You don't know your adult status. You are either too old to be a teen or too young to be considered an adult. I guess we are practically an overgrown 12-year-old.

10. You are 100% annoyed by teens.

Why do 14-year-olds need an Instagram? Why is there so much giggling? You realize how glad you are that those years are behind you.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
