Spring Cleaning : Start With Your Friends @jandarini

 SpringCleaning_Relationships

Hello boys and girls, I’m back! You may recall me writing about radical self-love in February (if not, you can find the article right here) and this time, although in a slightly more roundabout manner, we will be dealing with much of the same – but don’t run away yet! The theme for the month of April here on GenTwentyis, as you may have gathered from the title of this article, spring cleaning;…

5 Relationships we’ve all been in and what we should’ve learned

5 Relationships we’ve all been in and what we should’ve learned @HforB

Liz Poage - Hand holding

By: Alex Kariotis

The One Who Didn’t Care As Much As You Did:

This could pertain to friends or a significant other. Some time in your life you will find yourself in a relationship with someone who just doesn’t give a shit about you. Your feelings didn’t matter to them. You were always ready to hang out with them and they would rather hang out with other people instead. You should have learned…

Spring Cleaning: A fresh take on your love life

Spring Cleaning: A fresh take on your love life #dating #romance

Beautiful

Dear twenty-somethings,

As I am starting to get a little taste of summer through these glimpses of spring sunshine I’m excited for all my travel plans. House boating, Vegas, and British Columbia are all on my horizon and it makes a girl question if she wants an ol’ ball and chain kicking around. As I am routinely spring cleaning my make-up drawers and closet space, I feel like a good clean…

Going clean: Ways to start cleaning up your lifestyle

Going clean: Ways to start cleaning up your lifestyle for good #food #healthy

Vegetable garden

The concept of “eating clean” is finally gaining popularity in our chemical-saturated world. It can seem appealing, and our consciences know it’s the way to go, but where on earth does a twenty-something start? When jumping headfirst into the GAPS diet sounds too difficult and buying only organic foods is way out of the budget, the best thing to do is start small.

Here are three simple ways to…

Life advice to absolutely ignore

The worst pieces of #advice of all time, including “never change.” Seriously, why did we ever think that was good?

Advice to ignore

I love good advice, don’t get me wrong, I truly do. I’ve written advice articles about graduate school, the importance of timing, and even things I’ve learned from my younger sister. There are entire books devoted to giving advice to people in their twenties! We’re reading Adulting now as a GenTwenty community (and I encourage you to join us)! However… some advice we receive is rotten.

Spring Cleaning: Seriously, stop with all the toxic thinking

You cleaned out your closet for spring, now it’s time to clean out your mind. Toxic thoughts, be gone! @shelley_xoxo

Toxic Thinking

When we think about spring, we often think about sending old jeans to thrift stores and throwing out old magazines. We often forget that we also need to focus on our own mess; dusting off the cobwebs and sifting through the clutter of our personal lives.

One thing we all find ourselves doing: bringing ourselves down. Let’s be honest, there are enough people doing that already. It’s so easy to…

SpringCleaningFinances

Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to bring out the flats and flip-flops, throw on a sundress and take a stroll outside in the sunshine.

Spring Cleaning: Write your heart out

Writing is more than putting a pen to paper. It’s power. It’s a release. Most importantly, it’s who you are.

WriteYourHeartOut

Essays and assignments aside, writing is usually a hobby reserved for the future authors, fanfiction composers, emails to your grandma, and bloggers. But it gets a bad rap. Most people think that only those who can write, should, and everyone else should find their own medium. This is untrue. Writing, in whatever form, is healing and cleansing. And it can help boost your spring cleaning to new…

Spring cleaning: Tackling the junk drawer

Riddle us this: 1) You hate it. 2) It eats your stuff. 3) It’s high time to clean it out. What am I? #springcleaning

The Junk Drawer

Do you ever feel like your little trinkets and odds-and-ends get lost in the abyss of your home? Well, chances are, most of them end up in the black hole often known as the junk drawer. We all have junk drawers, whether you’d like to admit it or not. We try our best to keep them clean and organized, but the drawer always seem to pile back up to its natural, unruly state. Why is that? I’m sure we…

April 2014: Spring Cleaning

Check out what’s going down on G20 this month in our April “Letter from the Editor!”

Dear readers,

Ah, April. It seems like spring has finally arrived. Temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming, the dresses are coming out from the recesses of my closet they’ve been hiding in.

As I’m writing this, I’m sipping a delightful cup of green tea with my balcony door open. Even if the temperature dips again or it rains incessantly, I know brighter days are practically here already and…

Spring Cleaning – Closet Edition, effective ways to clean out those never worn pieces

Closet_Edition

We all have them – items of clothing that haven’t seen the light of day in months or maybe even years. Normally it’s a dress that you bought for one night out, pants you said you fit into in a few months, or a sweater that was on sale to the point where you just had to buy it.

Maybe you wore each item once or maybe they came home from the mall and were promptly put away to a place in your closet…

Spring Cleaning: Embrace the clean

Now that spring has finally (finally!!) sprung, it’s time to embrace the age old tradition: spring cleaning!

SpringCleaning

Spring is finally here, though it might not feel like it to people in certain parts of the country. This time of year only means one thing: spring cleaning. It reminds me of when my mother use to tell me it was time for a good old fashion spring cleaning. As a kid that meant I had to help clean every nook and cranny of the house. My memory of spring cleaning may not be fun, however as an adult I…
