Remember when it felt like you were going to be 20 forever? That’s because no one told you that your late 20s would be more like your 30s. But that’s cool because getting older isn’t all bad.

Drinking In Your Early 20s

Thursday evening? Time to turn up until it’s time for class on Monday.

Drinking Now

Turn down for what? That hangover is what. Now you’re idea of a party is two glasses of wine and under the duvet by midnight.

Drama In Your Early 20s

Your boss got on your nerves, your professor didn’t understand your struggle and you were 100% not cool with the way that girl at the bar gave you the side eye. Why is everyone trying to test your patience?

Drama Now

Drama? What Drama? Girl, bye. I am too grown for this foolishness.

Dieting In Your Early 20s

Diet? What is that? You mean that time I ate Ramen noodles for a week so I could afford that vacation?

Dieting Now

Just dieting? LOL. Try dieting and working out and cutting carbs.

Driving In Your Early 20s

Google Maps says it takes 45 minutes to get there? We’ll be there in 20.

Driving Now

Ten miles over the speed limit?! Slow down or let me out of this car. I like life..

Eating In Your Early 20s

All the junk food all the time. Jack In the Box drive through after the club? I’m there.

Eating Now

Big Macs are cheap but they’re also not food. Take me somewhere with actual plates or take me home.

Friends In Your Early 20s

Have drinks with someone you just met on Friday, you’re best friends by Saturday…and falling out by next Sunday.

Friends Now

You’ve weeded out all the fake friends and the hangers-on and you’ve pretty much figured out your friend circle for life.

Dating In Your Early 20s

Good looks were basically numbers one through ten on your list of “what I look for in a man.”

Dating Now

One through ten? Try one through twenty. You’re on the lookout for a life partner. Only grown men need apply.
