Early Twenties vs. Mid Twenties

Last night I watched the series finale of The Hills, which I still don't get by the way, and it got me thinking about life in my early twenties to where I am now. Refusing to consider 26 late twenties, of course. It's like the girls were saying, we are all growing up, what are we going to do now?

The twenties, to me, are really the craziest times. You graduate college, break up with the "love of your life", (most people I know) meet the real love of your life, decide on a career path, move away from home...It's a constant swirl of unending changes. 

At 20, I thought I would graduate college in just a few short years and move up to New York with my best friend (who is actually in New York, by the way), and have an unending amount of opportunities for career choices.

Little did I know, just a year and half later, I would meet B and everything would change. I would get married much younger than I thought, would live in three different states (none of which were on the top of my list) and end up living 15 minutes from my parents. 

Was it what I planned? No. And I'm so thankful for that. Life is definitely full of curveballs and you never really know where you are going to end up. But I think that is what this time is all about, embracing the things that come your way and really finding out what you truly want in life. For me, I know I made the right choice for my life and I honestly don't think I could be happier. I'm still trying to figure things out but all in all, life is great!

I didn't get into the Hills hype. I saw a few episodes here and there but I can totally relate to the whole having a plan in the 20's. I'm 26 now and my life plan completely went a different way.

Great post! I'm definitely not where I thought I would be, but it has all worked out. Now I kind of prefer the constant change.

Life in my twenties seems like it really has taken on a life of its own. My life has turned out completely different than what I expected, but I love it that much more for that very reason.

Love your blog, and love this post! I am 26 and have had a life much similar to yours - thought by now I would be living as a thriving career wopman out west, but then, at 23, met the true love of my life, and gave it all up to move to the mid west and be with him - and I couldn't be happier! But I am still trying to put the rest of the pieces together :)
