Hi, I’m Becky!
Welcome! The Typical Twenty Something is a place where you can learn the in’s and out’s of adulting. As a 26-year-old trying to survive the day to day that is San Francisco rent prices, waking up a.m. for work and not being able to eat like a 19-year-old, I’ve come to the realization that ADULTING IS HARD.
Part of growing up is the attempt for a 20-something to act like a real, parental free, independent human. This means being (relatively) on time, asking for a raise when you deserve one and making your own hangover food instead of Postmate-ing Taco Bell.
All jokes aside, I started this blog because I really do believe that growing up as a millennial and in general, being in your 20s is soooo freaking confusing. I mean, I’m trying to figure it out at this very moment.
There’s so much that you don’t learn in school that you should learn in school. Like, WTF is a W-4? After graduating college, I was so frustrated by this concept (not the W-4s, the whole growing up thing) that I even wrote an email to the Dean of my university, explaining why I was not accurately prepared for the real world with my degree. But that wasn’t enough, which is why I started the community of TTS.
So you are in, join our community, this is your ultimate guide to growing up. From filing taxes (is that even the right terminology?!), to figuring out how to find friends in a new city, to adult acne (it’s a real thing, y’all), let’s try and figure out this whole 20-something thing…together.
As you get reading, here are some basic rules to adulting:
- Having one glass of wine (or three) with dinner every night is socially acceptable.
- It’s OK to call your cable company three times because you didn’t understand your bill.
- Fake it ’till you make it.
Let’s raise our glasses of rosé and conquer this whole adulthood thing. Are you coming with me?!
But FIRST…Take our quiz! What stage of adulting are you?!
