A daily guide for your 20s and 30s

We are twin brothers in our 20's. Raised in the East Coast, now kicking it on the West Coast.

the very original Backstory

A couple years out of college, the two of us went traveling abroad like many of you to “find ourselves”…
There had to be more…
The grass is greener on the other side…

Now if you’re a millennial, you're probably thinking: “me too!”
Or if you’re thinking “ugh, entitled millennials…”

you’re fuckin’ right.

That’s because our generation grew up conditioned to feel this way. Any label of “entitlement” is heavily shaped by how we were raised.

Don’t believe me?

“You can be anything you want to be when you grow up.” — Parents, everywhere (1980–2000)

This phrase alone instills a special protagonist identity deep within our psyches (waitbutwhy).

Growing up, we expected to be set up for success…but instead we often ended up with a mismatched reality.

For many of us, this is the rude awakening.
The proverbial brick wall.
The face-plant we hit after college. 

Enter: The quarter-life-crisis

We feel lost...
Our actions uncertain...
We question life every step of the way.

We want to “find ourselves” so we take gap years, backpacking sabbaticals, and social service projects.

We quit or change our jobs faster than ever before because we believe “there’s got to be more opportunity elsewhere.”

Generation Y becomes Generation “Why?”

We’re Vulnerable.
Flawed.
And Imperfect.

We feel as if we’re always missing out somewhere in life — in our careers, love, or personal growth.

But we’re not alone. There are ~75 million millennials in the U.S. alone and millions more worldwide.

So we thought, we’re all probably going through the same shit so why not learn from each other?
