I had the opportunity to review The 20 Project, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Some days it’s hard for me to remember that my 20’s are long gone. Because most days I don’t feel any older than 25 but alas those days are nearly 10 years ago. And the older I get the more I find myself thinking, “if I only knew then, what I know now”. Would I change things, no. Would I do things differently, yes. Like paying way more attention in my New Media Studies course that basically was Intro to Blogging and Social Media.
While we can’t turn back time, we can learn a lot from our 20’s and that is what The 20 Project is all about. The 20 Project is a collection of stories, wisdom and advice from life on the other side of 20.
The book was compiled by Hilary A. Curry with the hope that it could help young adults through the quarter-life crisis, though the messages and themes of the story will resonate with readers of all ages.
The 20 Project takes readers on a journey beyond their 20’s. There seems to be a misconception that life ends at 29, that we are a culture so obsessed with youth and that nothing exciting happens after yours 20’s. But I don’t believe that and these stories show that life can be so much more, despite of or because of your 20’s.
The stories that spoke to me the most are those where people lives took them to new cities and countries. And while the stories are full of missteps and struggles, the authors still end up living a fulfilled life. I think these type of stories can serve as an inspiration to anyone who is unsure of what to do next in life.
What I took away from these stories was that life is about taking chances, not just in your 20’s but throughout life. You need to make mistakes, take risks, and leap for something new because you never know where it will bring you.
