    You forgot the BIGGEST (most important) mistake to avoid…. Not messing up your credit!!!!!! In my 20s, I wish someone would have told me how important it was to maintain good credit before taking accepting ‘offers’ from credit card companies that pimp their services to college students.

    Word to the wise: DO NOT MESS UP YOUR CREDIT IN YOUR 20s.

    #1 is my main problem….two best friends are married…other besties in serious relationships and its like wth for me?….also money whew I certainly spend more than I save and get extremely lazy at times. Once I fix those three problems I think I will be good but hell I’m 25 I’m stressing because I’m ready to meet the one I’ve kissed enough frogs lol

    #12 is kind of hard especially with student loan debt looming and few employment opportunities, so why not live rent free theres nothing wrong with help. Alot of this list is way too conservative, we’ll never be this young again so why play it safe?
