Reflections of a 25-Year-Old

Standard

A friend of mine from college recently turned 25 and created this kick-ass list of life lessons he’s learned the hard way. We all know that there are tons of lists and articles like this one online, and I haven’t posted any because I don’t think they provide much new insight. This one does. It brings out all the insight and stories I hope to gain from people when interviewing them, so I think it’s worth it. Enjoy!

Season 2, Episode 4

“The 20-Something Life” is the radio show that gives stories and advice for twenty-first century twenty-somethings. In this second interview of Season 2, host Colenn Berracasa talks with Cole Harry, UCSB alumnus who just returned from Europe. We talk about his master’s program in global studies in Germany and Austria, the cost of graduate school in Europe versus the U.S., working in a diplomatic role in Austria, how we should be thinking about the world as compared with other generations in history, a pessimistic yet oddly positive outlook on life, the usefulness of English and French in Europe, maintaining multilingualism, immigration issues in the European Union, deciding to come home after living abroad for several years, the vibe and housing situation in San Francisco and Oakland these days, the job hunt and all struggles that accompany it, the process and pressure of choosing one’s lifelong career, deciding when and where to put down roots, and the competitiveness of getting a job anywhere in the world right now.

The 20-Something Life airs on Tuesdays from noon-1pm in Winter 2014 on 91.9 FM KCSB in Santa Barbara and kcsb.org. Listen to past episodes on 20somethingliferadio.com.
