25 and Falling
If you’re in your 20s, or have been in your 20s, you know this universal truth: being 20-something can suck. But it can also be great. When I started my 20s (like one starts a new hobby), I had lofty goals of finishing my PhD. before 30, paying off my student loans even quicker, and somewhere in there writing a book of meaningful poetry or prose. Five years in and I have a master’s degree, have raised my academic debt, and have started a blog.
Oh, how the slightly-above-average have fallen.
