Things You Should Know By Age 25

Not that turning 25 means you have to reach full-on grandma status, but hitting the halfway mark of your twenties means it’s definitely time to reassess your life and make sure you’re adulting properly. Take a look at our list and see if you’re living in the past or if you’ve finally graduated from all the kid stuff.

  1. Do your own laundry. Preferably more than once a month, but we’ll take what we can get.
  2. Cook something that requires more than boiling water. Pasta + jar of spaghetti sauce ≠ “home cooked dinner”
  3. Get your damn oil changed! It’ll keep your car happy and healthy, which makes you happy and healthy.
  4. Dress appropriately for a job interview. If you’re not sure about this one, you have some Googling to do.
  5. Know how to fix a broken toilet. Seriously, this one will save you a lot of time, money and unpleasant smells.
  6. Learn how to parallel park. You may have skated through drivers ed without this skill, but eventually it’ll catch up with you. 
  7. Make your own doctor appointments. This one may feel hard, but if you haven’t been to the dentist since you moved out of your parents’ place, it’s time. 
  8. Stop smoking! While you may have thought it was cool when you were younger, you’re older and wiser now and know you don’t need that s*** anymore.
