I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal on the surface, but, for me, it was big. Turning 20 meant I was no longer a teenager. I loved being a teenager. I had many wonderful, teen memories over the last seven years.
I’m embarking on a new part of my life, my twenties. I can’t wait to begin this 10-year-long journey.
For me, there will be many great things happening throughout my first year in my twenties. In May, I’ll be setting off to live on my own in Italy for five weeks to study abroad. In August, I’ll begin graduate school while pursuing my undergraduate. Not many 20-year-old students can say that.
The truth is, I’m excited for my twenties. But, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little overwhelmed. Soon, I’ll be graduating, looking for a job and moving out on my own during my twenties. I guess that’s the reality. You realize you need to be independent more and more as the years go on. But, it all starts when you’re 20 because you’re no longer a teenager.
As much as I love being an adult, I love being a kid. I had a great childhood and I found myself more nostalgic yesterday.
Did any of you have this excited yet overwhelming feeling when you turned 20? If you did, make sure to leave a comment below! I’d love to hear what you all have to say.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day and as always, I will talk to you all soon.
