Age 24: “Young hearts, out our minds, Runnin’ till we outta time, Wild childs, lookin’ good, Livin’ hard just like we should.”
You are still going despite the shit life has thrown your way. All those times you thought you should just give up because it would be easier? Well, you didn’t. You’re still here and you’re kicking ass.
I want to do all the things that fill my soul with passion, all the things that society looks down upon because it’s not “together” or “professional.” I want to do those things because those are the things that make me feel like life is worth living, so I’m not going to stop.

We’re given this unlimited freedom to take literally any path in the world and there’s no direction or guidance. We become so overwhelmed by options and choices that we don’t know exactly what to do, so most of us settle.
Instead of acknowledging you’re the reason you’re stuck you blame other people.
You are only in your 20s once. You will never, ever get this time back. One day someone will wake up at their dead-end job still doing errands for their boss and realize “I wasted my life” – don’t be that guy.
The drinks have changed, too. Beers traded for coffees. Shots traded for cocktails. Nowadays we go out and just talk. It’s a change from the nights focused on hooking up, binge drinking, throwing up and forgetting it all by 10 AM.
