    20 Times "Broad City" Perfectly Described Your 20s

    It was the best of times; it was the sweatiest of times.

    1. Every time you realized you'd had cake for dinner four times in one week.

    A cake is just a bigger cupcake, when you think about it. It's a snack.

    2. And also every time you knew that cereal is always there for you, and also maybe like 40% of your diet.

    Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, brunch, mid-dunch. Whenever.

    3. The moment you realized you've moved on from how you used to agonize about your body...

    4. ...Which, in turn, made you feel better about celebrating other people's.

    5. That time you discovered you could learn just as much about growing up from the youth as from your elders.

    Maybe even more, tbh.

    6. When you realized just how much you use the internet.

    Comedy Central

    It doesn't matter how busy you are or aren't, you spend roughly 37 hours a day online in some capacity.

    7. Every time you were willing to try new things.

    Comedy Central

    8. And also those times you realized your limits and boundaries.

    Pot in the hoohoo is just not a good look.

    9. Every time things got scary and overwhelming, and the only solution was to dance.

    Comedy Central

    10. The years you spent not bothering to worry about "real world" things like taxes and insurance and your 401k.

    Comedy Central

    Should I care more about vitamins? Nature? The dwindling bee population?

    11. ...And all those moments that you were scared you cared TOO MUCH and things like, say, your crush texting you back.

    Comedy Central

    That's normal! Relax.

    12. That time you were confident about unabashedly loving things not everyone understands.

    Comedy Central

    ...Like Bed, Bath, and Beyond. G'head and love what you love.

    13. That moment you looked back at your younger self and were like, "What the hell was I thinking?"

    Comedy Central

    Also, "damn, I looked way cuter than I even thought."

    14. All those moments you proved to be stronger than you ever imagined.

    Comedy Central

    Emotionally, I mean.

    15. The time you realized you could not afford luxuries like "air conditioning" or "real cheese."

    Comedy Central

    But that's OK. You're working your way up the ladder, one sweaty summer at a time.

    16. That time it became too clear that you didn't exactly have your dream job.

    Comedy Central

    No, you're not a bestselling author slash entrepreneur slash dolphin trainer. YET.

    17. Every moment you came closer to knowing what you needed and wanted in your relationships.

    Comedy Central

    18. Every questionable Craigslist, Tinder, and OKCupid encounter with people you never want to see again.

    Comedy Central

    EVER.

    19. That time you figured out that you definitely don't have it all figured out.

    Comedy Central

    20. And the moment it dawned on you that, as long as you've got your best friend near, things will turn out fine.
