For every professional blogger who has ever run out of ideas there is a post advising readers on how they should maximize their 20’s. These usually range from advice on how to advance your career to creating better relationships to misguided tirades against 20-somethings for their perceived ‘entitlement.’ These lists often contradict one another, so, to make things easier for you, I’ve compiled a list of advice from these “articles” to help you navigate an entire decade of your life… because that’s something you should be going to the internet for.

 

Do Everything All the Time

What are you doing right now? Watching re-runs of Friends in your pajamas? Taking Snapchats? You really think you have time for that? You should be out curing diseases, starting Facebook, and meeting your soulmate(s)…in that order. You know what Einstein was doing at your age? Probably some pretty cool stuff. Get to it. Energy! Remember, life ends at 29.

 

Do Nothing Sometimes

Woah, woah, woah. Settle down Speed Racer. When was the last time you just took some ‘Me Time?’ You have your whole life ahead of you! Take a day off, Instagram some selfies, and eat some Frozen Yogurt. Scientists have probably shown that relaxation maximizes potential or something, anyways. Besides, Rome wasn’t built in a day, there is always tomorrow!

 

Try To Live More Like A Monk

Based on a mostly un-cited Wikipedia post I read a few years back, Monks are, like, the most efficient people in the world. Oh, you want to go out partying? Too bad, meditate. You want to buy the new iPhone? How about you grow something in a garden? You’re never going to become the next Tom from Myspace at a Metallica concert. Eight hours of sleep and a lack of consumerism are what dreams are made of.

 

Party Like A Rockstar

You need to spend your 20’s Rock ‘n Rolling all night and partying everyday. You think you’re going to have time to act completely irresponsibly when you’re 31? Now is the time to check out that dangerous looking bar, to try the drink your friend swears is named after him, and to miss the last bus home because you just wanted to check if that Sushi place was still open really quick. Reality TV Icon Gene Simmons never worried about how much sleep he was getting at 22, look at him now.

You’ve come all this way, this is your moment! Are you really going to let that punk Johnny beat you? In front of everyone? Mr. Miyagi didn’t just take you in out of the goodness of his heart, he needs this. It’s only going to get harder once you’re in your 30’s, so you might as well win the tournament and the respect of your peers now. I don’t care how much your leg hurts.

 

Well there it is, some of the best advice you’ll ever receive from the internet. Remember, you have literally no time to waste in your 20’s, unless your feeling sorta tired or you really wanted to catch that Rocky marathon this afternoon.
