“Being able to look at the years behind you with happiness and the years ahead of you with excitement is all that really matters to me.”

When I was younger, all I wanted to do was to be in my 20’s.

I thought it would be just like the movies. Going to clubs with friends, drinking wine and having the perfect apartment to go back to at the end of the night. Now, at 19, I realize that will not be the case for me – at all.

I’m young for my grade.

As a sophomore in college, most of my friends are over 20.

Our 20’s are still seen as young, but there’s such a paradox BEING Young & Twenty.

We’re supposed to be adults.

Ge a job, pay the bills, get married, start a family.

But how are people supposed to take you seriously when you’re “young”? 

I believe that youth can be found at every age, just in different ways. It’s all in your perspective and the way you look at life. Age is just a number. What really counts is your outlook. Being able to look at the years behind you with happiness and the years ahead of you with excitement is all that really matters to me.
