I turn 24 in a month and i feel like my 20s are slipping away (was ahead in school so graduated early and started the accounting grind a little earlier than I'd like looking in retrospect and obv covid for 2 years now). Any advice on how to seize them better?

I’m sure dealing with COVID for half of your twenties makes you feel like you’re missing out, but you still have 6 years of twenties! By 24 I hadn’t even had my heart broken yet and didn’t have the salary to properly enjoy being an adult. It’ll get better, don’t worry! Make sure you have a good group of friends who make it a fun experience no matter what you’re doing, and you won’t miss out on anything :)

I totally get that! Go on bumble BFF or join IM sports leagues to find some friends who are more in the ‘partying’ stage of life! I’m 27 and found a new group of girlfriends on Bumble BFF (mix of 23 to 29) who are always down for happy hours with me :) I love my friends I’ve had longer, but they are also in the couple-y stage and won’t go out on saturdays without a week’s notice.

Remember the suffering or pain you are experiencing someone is desperately seeking hoping and praying to find.

Also just remember the world changes when you least expect it so be open to the possibilities.

I was unemployed at 24, life can turn out okay.

I felt the same way. Freaking grad school.
But there is so much time left in your twenties and it only gets better!

Some things to consider:
Say yes to all the things - traveling, new jobs, living in new places, etc.
Build a support system - find people you can have fun with now but also the people who you want by your side in 20 years.
If you’re single, go on lots of dates just for fun! Figure out who you want to settle down with but don’t rush into it.
Don’t be afraid to do a (mildly) stupid thing or two.

If you want to travel, see the world, move to a different city and visit new places, now is the time to do it. Go on fun adventures with your friends. If you are interested in making new friends, get involved in sports groups or any social groups that interest you. Break some hearts, date all kinds of interesting people. Work isn’t the be-all or end-all, especially at your age.

I did all of this in my 20s and 30s. Don’t regret a thing and would highly recommend it.
