Heartbreak and hope

The pain of losing someone you love can feel unbearable. Feelings of sadness, grief and hopelessness are common after ant sort of break-up. It can be hard to believe you will every feel happy again, let alone find someone new to love and be loved. The last thing you want to hear is some kind-hearted friend spouting platitudes about lost love. Or go on and on about the fact that you will be fine. Time generally does heal and working through a break up often leaves people feeling stronger, more resolute and ready to get back out there again - but sometimes you just want to be okay with bawling your eyes out, eating some ice cream and yelling at the top of your lungs.

IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

Tail-lights fading, daylight breaking, standing there like a fool,
When I shoulda been running, yelling out something
To make you wanna hold on to
The best love ever - girl can you tell me the one thing you’d rather die than lose?
‘Cause mine would be you.

You know you’re in your “late 20’s” when…

Drinking alcohol

Early 20s: How much of this vodka from a plastic bottle can I drink before I get sick?

Late 20s: How much of this wine can I drink before I involuntarily pass out at 10pm?

Wine

Early 20s: [in grocery store] Ok, where’s the cheapest bottle or box of wine that I can find? I’ll take that one.

Late 20s: [in grocery store] Ok, where’s a $20 bottle of wine that’s on sale for $15.99 that also has a nice label with cool writing or a great saying?

The definition of a “big night out”

Early 20s: LETS RAGE! Pull an all-nighter till it’s 6am, nap and let’s start daydrinking!

Late 20s: Eh I’ll go out for a little bit. Gosh, it’s midnight and I have to work in the morning! Goodnight guys!

Hangovers

Early 20s: Me and ten of my friends are hungover together, hair looking a hot mess and last nights makeup on. NOT getting off of this couch. Oh screw it, let’s go have a beer. That’s the cure all.

Late 20s: Ibprofen, delivery, Netflix marathon through half-closed eyes, in pjs with my partner and close friends…maybe a mimosa :)

Other people’s opinions

Early 20s: OMG?! What did I do for them not to like me?

Late 20s: Bitch I do what I want. I chose my friends wisely. If you don’t like me or my decisions, then don’t be in my life.

Eating vegetables

Early 20s: Celery with peanut butter and a bin food of iceburg lettuce…oh and some canned veggies! That counts right Mom?

Late 20s: How much kale, celery, romaine, chard, spinach and carrot can I fit into this smoothie without it tasting like it was literally blended from the dirt? Maybe I’ll add some protein powder.

Eating junk food

Early 20s: Kraft mac & cheese, Doritos, McDonald’s… all in one day.

Late 20s: I only a bag of chips today..that’s not too bad. I’ll be having salad with grilled chicken for dinner anyways.

The movie date

Early 20s: Here, fill this Coke bottle with whiskey or wine, sneak it in, then let’s makeout for a while!

Late 20s: Are you seriously trying to makeout with me right now? HAND ON MY LAP IS FINE! I’m watching a movie that I paid $15 to see!

Animated movies

Early 20s: Cartoons? How about The Notebook instead?

Late 20s: Let’s all go see the new Pixar movie at 7pm on a Friday night and cry at the end!

Dancing

Early 20s: Something I do with another person that is reminiscent to dry humping and grinding.

Late 20s: Something I do by myself in my underwear looking like Cameron Diaz from Charlie’s Angels in my kitchen listening to music from the 90s.

Speed limits

Early 20s: Is there a cop around? No? Weeeeeee!

Late 20s: I’m going to go maximum 5 mph over the speed limit. If that kid behind me doesn’t stop tailgating me soon, I’m going to go under the speed limit jus to piss them off.

Cleaning your place

Early 20s: Hahahah, clean? I don’t have many dishes anyway - use a paper plate!  My laundry is starting to look like it’s taking over my room. 

Late 20s: If I find one more empty glass around the house or piled up dishes in the sink one more time, then I am going to lose my damn mind!

Hiking/Jogging

Early 20s: Is there anything I’m getting out of this? Can we just go kabrewing?

Late 20s: To get out and stretch, explore and smell the fresh air..ah what a treat after this week! I’m stressed!

Dating

Early 20s: OMG, do they like me baaaaaaack?! We hooked up, but I still don’t know! I think I really like them though..

Late 20s: We are either doing this thing or we’re not doing this thing, Let me know because life is ticking and I don’t have time for games.

The kitchen

Early 20s: Few pots and pans, the basics.

Late 20s: Painted, decorated and random kitchen gadgets. Juicer and a Keurig in site.

A clean kitchen

Early 20s: Ummmmm, yeah, I’ll just keep using dishes until I run out of clean dishes, then I will clean only one dish at a time as I need it, then when the sink is too full to even clean the one dish I need, I will relent and clean everything like I am on a coke high, except I won’t be, but it’ll feel like it.

Late 20s: My actual idea of torture would be if someone forced me to go to sleep before my kitchen was clean.

Interior decorating

Early 20s: Accidentally an eclectic modge podge of hand me downs, thrift store finds and freebies. How much is that couch? Free?  Awesome, let’s get that one.

Late 20s: Purposely an eclectic mix of modern and vintage pieces. West Elm, Anthropologie and Ikea had a baby. DIY mixed with clean lines. Dresser for $50 and I’ll sand it and rehab it!

Exercise

Early 20s: Meh, too much effort. I’ll just

Late 20s: If I don’t exercise, I believe my muscles will actually atrophy. Also, everything fucking hurts.

Water

Early 20s: Something I drink only to offset all the alcohol in my body. Other than that, throw me a Monster or Pop.

Late 20s: Something I drink because my body is no longer working on autopilot and the struggle to survive is real.

Things to drink other things with

Early 20s: I’m still using the red plastic cups I bought in bulk for that beer pong championship.

Late 20s: I have red wine and white wine glasses, champagne flutes, martinit glasses, juice carafes, coffee mugs, tea mugs. Basically, there is no drink you can throw my way that my cabinet does not have a proper container for. Come at me, beverages!

Organizing

Early 20s: Uhhhh, organizing? You mean like putting my papers into binder? Oh damn, where is that binder anyway?

Late 20s:  I may have actually gotten turned on the last time I was in The Container Store. Take me home, varying sizes of plastic containers that come with adhesive labels! OOh, look at that shelf! I can totally use that for my bathroom!

Farmer’s Markets

Early 20s: Whyyyyyy mom, are you dragging me to this at 8:30 in the morning?!

Late 20s: Alarm set, coffee run at 8. Oh, hey babe, grab the reusable bags - let’s get there before 9am to get the freshest peaches!

Sleeping

Early 20s: Five hours and I’m good to go, but really I’ll just sleep in ;) 

Late 20s: My entire day will be ruined if I do not get minimum 6 hours of really good REM cycle sleep.

Planners

Early 20s: Here’s where I put my loose suggestions of when I should go to class, even though we both know I won’t make it to most of these. Plus, who needs a planner?

Late 20s: I literally forget all my plans unless I put them into a planner, which reminds me I need to get replacement paper at Staples.

People who are 25

Early 20s: I can not believe I’m almost in my mid’s 20’s Shoot me.

Late 20s: Rewind please?
