Like people assume your early twenties (ages 20-23) are just about partying, which can be awesome, tbh.

There's nothing wrong with exploring your newly minted 21 status, staying up late, and hanging out with your friends as much as possible.

But it can also be a time where you're really finding yourself and making friends that will last long into your adulthood.

By trying out lots of different things — fashion styles, friend circles, jobs, etc. — you get to feel out what you like, versus what you can cut out.

And you don't have too much pressure on you to settle down yet, you still get to be figuring your life out.

Sure, some people will have found their forever lobster and started career paths they'll be on forever. But a lot of people in their early twenties get the awesome wiggle room of being able to experiment.

Your mid twenties (ages 24-26) is where the dreaded quarter-life crisis allegedly comes into play.

You realize you are, in fact, getting older. And getting older means responsibilities, and having to figure your shit out. Even if you're not totally ready to do that just yet.

But that doesn't necessarily mean bad things, it just means that you're really starting to think about where you're headed.

A quarter-life crisis can actually be the kick in the ass you need to start moving ahead. You'll decide what's really making you happy, and start to let go of the things that aren't.

Which can be a great thing, actually, because you're going to be putting up with way less bullshit.

You'll start brushing off other people's bullshit, and even your own. In general, you're just going to start really sorting out what matters versus what doesn't.

And your late twenties (age 27-29), means you're inching closer to adulthood, if you're not there already.

You might have found your dream job, and you could be dating to form longer relationships. Regardless, you're taking life more seriously, and that's a good thing.

You're really thinking in terms of the future, and what your career, friends, and love life should look like.

And you're taking active steps to get to the future you want, if you're not already there.
