resources for twenty-somethings / 18 things.
Yah, I'm engaged and I have a career, but I promise, I still have SO MANY moments of doubt. Finding articles like Sarah's "18 Things I Really (Really!) Wish I'd Known In My 20s" is comforting. We've all been there. Some of us are still there. Let's learn from each other.
Of the 18 things, these 3 are my favourite:
3. It really doesn't matter what you major in.
What does matter? The internships you get, your work ethic, your interpersonal skills, who you know. High-five, 22-year-old self! You didn't ruin everything with that English degree! Just make sure to get work experience in many different fields until you find one that you love!
7. When in doubt, make the effort.
You'll never regret wearing that nice outfit, buying the thoughtful gift for the friend you haven't heard from in a while or over-tipping. If it doesn't work out, at least you'll know you did your best.
9. There are seven billion people in the world.
I promise you, you'll love someone else. You'll make new friends. You'll find coworkers and neighbors that are awesome. If it's too hard (or if someone is making you feel bad) then walk away. There are a million other people out there who won't make you feel bad! Learning to let go of relationships is one of the most liberating experiences you'll ever have.
The other 15 are pretty solid, too.
P.S. More resources for twenty-somethings.
