Why At 22 is trending on Twitter
A Twitter user with the handle ‘@beckkubrick’ randomly decided to ask his tweeps what they were doing at the age of 22. The tweet blew up immediately.
“Question time ! I’m 22 and people like to tell me how young I am and how much time I’ve got to figure things out even if I don’t feel like I do. So…what were you up to around 22 and how has your life changes since then?” he quizzed.

the "what were you doing at 22" question makes me so horribly anxious every time i've tried to answer it lol. let's just say When I Was 22 It Was A Very Bad Year and my 30s have been pretty comparatively great so far

At 22, I was still trying to convince myself that I liked clubbing and I also went on a lot of bad dates including one guy who took me to a dark, remote area and said he had always wanted to be there with a beautiful woman and now he was.
I asked if she was in the trunk.

At 22 I was still in college for Music Edu. I had my future planned out w my then bf but we had suddenly broken up, which threw a giant wrench into things. Since then I did get my degree and teach but I also work in animation. Life can change. Things are never set in stone https://t.co/jWV0qVH4cx

The pressure people feel to figure out their entire life in their 20’s is insane. At 22 I had just graduated college, moved to a new state where I knew almost no one, and was working an awful job. I am turning 30 this year and my life is completely different than it was then. https://t.co/c9HiumRmPP

At 22, I took care of my mom until she died. I moved back to Texas from LA. I couldn't deal with her death and started stand-up as a way of therapy. Twelve years later, I created/starred a sitcom about that time of my life w/family but I was a lawyer in it. FIRST Latina to do it. https://t.co/kTOnabSiu2
