Daily Fails of 20-somethings

When the struggle bus is real and you're the driver.

Daily Fails of 20-somethings

When I was twelve I thought about how old, cool, and adult like people in college were. They had it all together living on their own, doing college, real life, they just seemed to have it all going their way. I envied and looked forward to that time in my life...until I realized I was SO very wrong. We don't have it all together but we sure are trying hard and drowning while doing it! Daily life is a struggle, but you my friend are making it happen. Here's to you and your #dailystruggles as a twenty-something.

Waking Up

What day is it? Is it the next morning or waking up from that 3 hour nap I took? Either way I'm not ready to be up and don't even think I can function beyond this bed. 8 o'clock class? Work? How about try again tomorrow...

Clothing Yourself

You mean to tell me now that I'm up I have to clothe myself for the public? There's nothing to wear I only own Norts and 2XL tees...going for effortless look then today it seems.

Time Management

I took like 3 hours to get out of bed, 2 to find clean clothes, and now it's 9AM. Shoot I'm gonna be late to class, and wait was that paper due today? Knew I should of started on it last week...where are my car keys?

Juggling School and Social Life

Assignment, paper, work, read book, project, group meeting, presentation, gym, class, work, eat, sleep, breathe, when was the last time I saw my friends? SOS loner drowning in school and life, send help! Preferably in the form of friends carrying ice cream to my door.

Working Out

Goes to gym, gets intimidated, does one machine, leaves gym, tells self, "I'm going to try again tomorrow."


Hungry, must feed self. Cereal? Microwave pizza? Or adult and try to cook? *proceeds to burn noodles, set fire to meat, and drop sauce all of the floor* Ordering pizza it is, not like I'm going to the gym again anway...

Do It All Again

And you know what, it does get better and you will get it together. You may be old and senile one day but you can look back and know you lived and lived it well. You took each day for it mistakes, triumphs, and all. You learned how to adult and how to be a functioning citizen; you will contribute to society. Not for today, but we will get there one day my friends. For now keep on failing and get right back up, you're making it! Here's to being thirty-somethings who have it "all together" one day!

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
