We all know time is an illusion and age is just a construct, but that doesn't stop most of us from having similar "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times"-esque experiences in our twenties. This tumultuous time has been picked apart by thinkpieces, romcoms, and sitcoms, oftentimes by people whose twenties have passed them by. These fourteen tweets from twenty-somethings currently in the trenches perfectly sum up the high highs and low lows.



1. That feeling when your skin has no idea if it's 16 or 35...

2. ...and when you're still young enough to get birthday gifts, but you go with the grown option.

3. When you're fully committed to working on yourself...

4. ...but dread still manages to sneak up out of nowhere...

5. ...and some days this is just all too real.

6. When your fridge is stocked solely with grilled cheese ingredients and half-filled hot sauces.

7. When you've finally realized you don't owe people pursuing you at the club anything, but it's still scary to let them down straight...
8. ...so you hide in the bathroom only to find your new BFF for the night.

9. Lots of days this could be so true...
10. ...followed by lots of mornings like this.

11. Every other Facebook status, slowly but surely, is an engagement announcement.
12. Going home to be parented, forget about your bills, and sleep in your childhood bed has never made you more grateful...
13. ...and you often catch yourself thinking about how much different you thought your twenties would be, for better or worse.
14. Basically, Britney Spears summed it up perfectly.
