As some of you right now probably is, there once was a day I too had no idea who Ellie Schnitt was. Now she one of my all-time favorite people; and we've never even met.
In 2018, she seemingly appeared overnight on everyone's Twitter timeline. Now she's living up every current Odyssey writer's fantasy by creating content for Barstool Sports straight out of school. While some dismiss Ellie as "everything wrong with Twitter" simply for tweeting her daily thoughts, I think she's vital to the platform.
In this day and age, it's hard to be a female, especially one in their 20s. There are expectations, disappointments, laughs and tears. Now more than anything we ladies need to a have a voice in the void looking out for us and letting us know it's OK to feel how we feel because we're not alone.
Here are some one-liners every twenty-something needs to hear by another twenty-something who just gets it.
1. When you're having trouble accepting that your feelings are valid.
Let's face it, the world would be a much better place if we were just honest with everyone about what we REALLY want out of life.
2. When the world is trying to convince you that being "selfish" is a negative trait.
Ladies, it's time we stop considering being selfish as something to be ashamed of. Sure, there are certain circumstances, but learning how to put your own needs first is part of being successful.
3. When you need a quick reality check.
Part of learning how to be selfish also involves learning when and where to be selfish. There are times when you come first, but there are also times when you need to be a pillar of support for someone else, it's only fair.
4. When men try to knock you down a peg but it's 2019.
Highlighter in 2019 is the equivalent of belly button rings and low rise jeans in the mid-2000s, if you've got it, then rock it.
5. When you feel like you never even left undergrad and life feels strangely familiar.
Despite what your Facebook and Instagram feeds seem to be telling you, it's OK not to have your life completely together directly after undergrad. Sometimes it takes a year )or a few) to know exactly what you want to do with your life, that's exactly what your 20s are for.
6. When you start to question how much you should put up with.
Why deal with someone more than you have to? Sometimes the bare necessities is all you need.
7. When you need more some self-love than usual.
Snap a selfie when you're having a really good makeup day, heck, post it while you're at it even though you just posted a pic yesterday. Take some nudes solely for the reason to admire yourself in them, it's OK to feel yourself in 2019.
8. When you're trying to explain that you HAVE closure but also kinda don't.
You know when you're scrolling through Instagram and you see the man who was never really your man suddenly eloped with his girlfriend of five minutes and you're still having wine nights with your dog? Yeah, this describes exactly how that feels.
9. Sometimes, we all still need even more reassurance than we thought we did.
But in the end, that "break-up" with your man that was never your man helped you grow into the person you are today. Heartbreak and all, you've grown stronger through it all.
10. And most importantly, when you need to remind yourself what the real issues in life are.
Like I said, you're in your 20s You're allowed to have fun and enjoy yourself, and most importantly scam men for free alcohol.
