Being in your 20s is hard. And not in that roll-your-eyes kind of way, that fake way where you loudly sigh and you toss your head back and breathlessly exclaim, “oh god, I’m getting soooo old.” No. Your 20s are hard in a different way.
Everybody loves The Beatles. And if you don’t love The Beatles, you’re probably just one of those people that likes to take the opposite stance of everybody so that you can seem edgy and unique. This quartet evolved from personalized pop hits (“I Saw Her Standing There”) to edgy, experimental rock n’ roll (“I Am the Walrus”), and did it while maintaining their songwriting abilities and charming personalities.
Everybody is afraid of something. Be it heights, roller coasters or airplanes, when put in the right situation even the bravest of us can turn into a weeping puddles of mush.
Throughout our existence, we’re bombarded with cheesy cliches and phrases meant to guide us through the often unnavigable terrain we call life. From adolescent drama at the school dance to adult annoyances in the work place, you’ll find that these “Golden Rules” apply to even the strangest of situations- like a Phish show.

And then she got, umm, kind of annoying.

I’d venture to guess most 20-somethings within my financial bracket know the truth about this neighborhood once jokingly referred to as “the retirement community”: it’s filled with douchebags.
Since I was twelve years old, all I ever wanted to do was go see live music. I’d legitimately lay in bed at night and worry that without a license, money and friends that liked the same music as me, I’d never be able to see any of the bands I loved, and would lead a miserable and unfulfilled life.
