For so many of us, we look forward to our birthday every year. It’s a chance to celebrate with our friends, take a night off, and maybe even get some presents. So, why do some birthdays feel more special than others? Across the board, there is a mutually shared hatred for turning 23 years old. Something about being 23 is simply soul-crushing.
1. After you turn 23, you are officially old! You’ve probably graduated from college, and now are being forced to figure your life out in the real world. You can’t be going to college parties and sleeping past your alarm anymore. You’re 23!
2. You’re struggling to find a job and you’re not even sure what you want to do yet.
