I turned 20 just a few months before I began my European adventure. Obviously, this has been a great decade so far! I stumbled upon this article during my time in Dublin, and if you're in your 20s, I think it is worth a read!

21 Ways You Should Take Advantage of Your 20s
I don't love all of it, but most of it is pretty solid advice. My favorites are:
(Note, I didn't attach ALL 21 points from the article, just my favorites!)
1. Don’t feel the need to respond to every text message, phone call, and
email the second it reaches you. Once upon a time, it took longer than a
minute to reach someone. People used stamps and envelopes; they had
answering machines they didn’t check for hours, sometimes days. No one
will die if you don’t immediately respond to every message you receive.
2. Ask for what’s owed to you. Half the time, you’re not getting your
needs met because you’re not making them known. Your employers, romantic
interests, and friends are not going to read your mind and give you
what you need unless you speak up.
17. Sit down, unplug, and read non-fiction. Do this daily. None of your
peers are doing it. They’re playing video games and refreshing Facebook
and Gmail chatting about nothing in particular. After a month you’ll be
smarter than all of them.
