Signs You Are a Struggling 20-Something

20-Somethings

1. You bring a flask to the bar. Or better yet, a “water” bottle.

2. You don’t learn from your mistakes. Your life is a constant pattern of going out and drinking too much, being extremely hungover, swearing you’ll never drink again and then repeating the next weekend – or the next night.

3. Saturdays and weeknights consist in TV binging. You watch the whole first season and 15 episodes of the second season of Scandal in one week.

4. You have tank tops, sweaters, pants with holes in them. You then refuse to buy a new $12 tank top because you’re “broke,” but you still spend over $50 on drinks on a random Sunday afternoon. That’s enough for about 10 hole-free tank tops…

5. You buy the same exact things at the grocery store each month because you know what you like, are cheap, and are too afraid to experiment (especially if you are only cooking for 1).

6. You get a haircut once a year and visit the dentist every other. You have better things to spend your time and money on, like buying a new dress or a case of wine.

7. You don’t own a library card and have no intention to get one anytime soon, let alone be able to tell a stranger where the nearest library is.

8. It’s embarrassing how much celebrity gossip you know in comparison to what is actually going on in the world.

9. You still get a $20 bill from your grandma on very important holidays like Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Easter.

10. That $20 bill doesn’t go towards your student loans, but instead towards the expensive kind of beer for the weekend – Miller Lite.
