Rules of a Twenty Something

This is a work in progress, and I am figuring this out as I go, and I have seven years of mistakes, triumphs, desperation, heartbreak, and joy left. Feel free to add to this list, I could always use another perspective.

1. Understand that you know little to nothing. You may have a fancy education that you paid thousands for but in the harsh reality that is life, you don’t have much common sense. If you realize this early, you will save yourself a lot of frustration.

2. Save money. The biggest mistake you can make financially is thin that there will always be a stream of money coming in. Save and work like you need the money. Let’s be honest, you do.

3. You’re entitled to nothing. The world is a different game and if you approach it like it already owes you, you’ve already lost.

4. Do things that scare you and don’t settle unless you know you have to settle for a while to save up for something you really want. Never stop trying.

5. Don’t let your boring entry level job eat you alive. Find your passion and keep searching until you do. I promise that you know what you’re meant for.
