What they don't tell you about being 20-something is that it's OK to be selfish sometimes. You're chasing after your own dreams and creating a path for yourself.

That's why "me time" in your 20s is so important, and something we should always make room for in our schedules.
Whether you're traveling solo, or are soaking up as much time as possible in the shower before you have to face your roommates again — the moments you can keep to yourself are crucial. If you're an introvert, then you're probably a pro at personal space and love when you can snuggle up in bed to recharge.
