The 20's

My baby sitter is 16. She talks a lot, really fast, has big dangly earings, and says "totally" and "like" a lot. She just got into a fender bender, and she has boy troubles. 10 years ago, I was 16. It doesn't seem that long ago. Most of my friends here in TN are around the age of 36. They are very comfortable in life, and have been married for a good amount of time. They seem fairly secure and certain of who they are. That is 10 years from now, for me. There is a big difference between a 16 year old and a 36 year old, but I feel like at 26 I can easily relate to, and hang out with both.

It's kind of weird to be in this growing time of adulthood. (if that makes any sense) It seems like it's a time of searching, of figuring out who I am, and how I want to do life. I'm lingering between those years where I was out of control, and growing into the years where I am confident in the decisions I make, and comfortable with where I am.
It's a cool time of life, but kind of weird.

~Are the 20's a weird time for anyone else?

Oh my word! My 20s were a
lo-o-o-o-o-ng time ago (I'll actually turn 40 next month).

I spent my 20s thinking I knew who I was. I figured out who I was in my 30s, and now things can only get better (at least I hope they do). It's all been good. :-D

my 20's had a lot of up and downs. I am still figuring stuff out but as I near 30 ( I am 29) it seems to be getting easier. I look forward to the next ten years.

I'll tell you what, I'm about the same as urban mama. only in the fact that im 29. I spent most of my 20's doing what I wanted to do, but also doing the basics of what I needed to do.

I've felt more compelled in this last year to get to the point where I can actually settle down. Im still a bit of a wild spark. (that good but only to a point)

Just Mom~ I have heard that it does keep getting better.
urban mama and randy~ Yeah, I do think it's more of a time of figuring things out. I look forward to my thirties.

You are right on about what the 20's are all about.
