I learned a lot in my 20s... I was introduced to make up, skincare, hair styling (I think I was around 20 before when flatirons became a thing), etc, but becoming a mother forced me to grow up in a different way. At 24, I was living with my husband, a mom to a newborn, and at that point I didn't even know how to cook. But then Pinterest became a "thing" and you know what? I learned almost all the life skills that my parents had tried to teach me, besides washing clothes and learning how to Google crap that I didn't know.
You see, I was fortunate. I didn't have to cook, deal with a checkbook, or do "adult" things until I moved out. And when I did, I was very lost. Sad, I know. So today, I am going to share what things that would have been beneficial for me to learn in my early twenties, to help me later on in life. The things that one needs to know to become an independent adult.
