Ten Facts – What does it feel like being 24?

Holla guys! So recently I’ve attended my BFF 24th birthday party which was freaky amazing and though I decided to talk about some facts being 24. But before getting a ride into this I want to share my experience being a younger person that I have always wonder, what does it feel like being 24? Because it’s an age where you find yourself the happiest person in the whole planet but at the same time you also feel so mature. So I wrap up some real life facts about being 24. Let’s get in,

FACT 1: THE INITIAL CHAOS FEELING

The first thing I realized being 24 is that you are the same age as the number of hours in a day- lol just kidding. So as you turn 24, the most initial thought you think is

you are too young to say you are old and too old to say you are young”

Well, it’s true, your personality starting acting like a mature person. You become more reserve, very direct with your mates and become more responsible person than ever.

FACT 2: MORE GOAL ORIENTED & INDEPENDENT PERSON

So 24 is a perfect age where you get a clear picture of goals and you finally start deciding what you really have to do with your life. At 24 you start accomplishing your aims and become more focused. You become more confident and started paying your own bills. You probably have more money in your wallet than before and you no longer depended on your parents. You feel like a boss when you think to buy a new gadget because you my baby, can own your expenses now. Wallah! Such an amazing feeling, isn’t?

FACT 3: YOU PREFER A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Another interesting fact about being 24 is becoming more home person. Instead of having a classy restaurant dinner, you prefer home cooked food. You also started looking for fitness clubs in town, not just because you want to look slim, but it’s just you feel a strong urge to become a more fit person. You become more likely to spend your spare time organizing bedroom, wardrobe, work desk etc. & you find it really cool.

FACT 4: THEY DON’T CARE Anymore !!

Your parents show less interest in you as you hit 24. They would not even ask you if you come late at night. They don’t realize how much money you spend now, which is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is you can spend money on whatever things you want, whereas the bad thing is you have to spend your own money. L

FACT 5: THE MARRIAGE FEAR

As you hit 24 people expect you to get married. However, you see your Facebook friends getting married and you feel like, why they get married so early? But suddenly you realized that 24 is the totally perfect age to get married.

FACT 6: START SAVING

You started focusing on saving rather than spending. I personally have seen so many friends who secretly saves their money. So by the age of 24, as you become an ambitious person. You started saving for your future. You also think of big things e.g. to buy a  new car, save money for new apartment etc.

FACT 7: THE ”I’M TOO OLD FOR THIS” STATEMENT

I don’t why but I’ve seen so many people under the age of 24 saying,” I’m too old for this”. On my personal opinion, a person could never be too old for anything unless he/she is willing to be. BTW getting back to the point, you probably become one of those people too.

FACT 8: APPRECIATING MUCH

At 24 you start appreciating things a lot, even those tiny things you never bother before. You started appreciating alone time, long walks, kind acts etc.

FACT 9: STRESS LESS

Being 24 is the ideal age where you finally realized to cut off the toxic people from your life. You focus on more product things and stress less. You finally able to learn how to shut down people nicely.

FACT 10: STILL MISS YOUR UNI LIFE

You probably become one of those persons who watch’s old university pictures every night and says I still miss uni, I still miss my college, I still miss my high school. Lol! But that’s true.

So most people think 24 is the weirdest age, where you lost your freedom and all the exciting stuff in life. But this is not true, in my opinion, being 24 is the head start of your life where you actually meet yourself for the first time. You get to know “you”; you find the best version of yours and most importantly being 24 allows you to start a new journey of life.
