…The Terrifying Twenties
We’ve all heard of the terrible twos, the temper-tantrum filled period in a child’s life where nothing makes sense and everything is upsetting. Eighteen years later, we’re back to being confused and distressed: welcome to The Terrifying Twenties.
The life of a twenty-something year old feels a lot like a game of Whose Line Is It Anyway where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. This blog reflects the thoughts of another young adult trying to figure it all out.
My name is Nicole, and I’m the serial blogger and terrified 23 year old behind the (thin, mostly translucent) curtain of The Terrifying Twenties. After graduating with a degree in journalism and communications, I decided to create this blog on my one year anniversary of being a member of the real world. I hope this page can be a resource for other people like me – a young person trying to figure out how the hell to navigate this thing called adulthood, one coffee and mental breakdown at a time.
