What Should You Really Have Accomplished By 35?

I am turning 30 next year. As an older millennial, my current life status is a bit different than the late 20s of my parents, who had a house and two kids by now. I have an apartment (no roommates!), a dog, and can even keep houseplants alive, so I’m FINE, but there is still the nagging feeling that I am a little bit behind. So, when MarketWatch tweeted out that you should have twice your salary saved by the time you turn 35, everyone on Twitter absolutely lost their minds, and I was right along with them. If only I had abandoned my love of avocado toast earlier!

However, some people managed to make lemonade out of lemons, and tweeted out some better (or at least more hilarious) advice beyond “make the broken capitalist system work in your favor.”

All jokes aside, what is your go-to “do this before you’re 35” suggestion? Everyone moves at their own pace and it’s not healthy to compare your life journey (yes, I hate me too right now) to someone else’s, but goals are important. Or at least accumulating worthwhile experiences. So, share your wisdom with a dumb twentysomething. I need all the help I can get.
