My Early 20s

Tomorrow is my 26th birthday. That officially is the start of my Mid 20s. Some would argue that 23 1/2 was actually the start of my mid 20s, but let's be honest, would you consider a junior in college to be in the early 20s? No. They are a student. So I would submit that this is the appropriate definition of the stages of your 20s:
22 (post undergraduate) - 25 = Early 20s
* This is the time in life where you want to think that you have it all figured out and that life will go just according to the plans you laid out during your last semester of college when you really didn't go to class and just survived.
26-28 = Mid 20s
* This looks to be the point where you have left the first job you took out of school and are either still pursuing your passions or you have resigned yourself to the world's greatest lie (The Alchemist) and you are just seeing where life ends up taking you.
29 = Late 20s
* By this point, you have a couple of options for how people will look at you professionally. Because you are still in your 20s, if you haven't quite hit the ball out of the park, you have a pass and can still attempt greatness for one more year. Or, if you have made some pretty significant head way in the world, your high school friends parents will bring you up as "the kid we always knew was going to make a name for himself."
Then you get to your 30s, but I don't have to think about that for awhile, so I am just not going to.
