Hello from NOW

Jessie Rosen - August 24, 2021

It has been almost five years since I officially closed shop on this blog after its decade-long run. I’ve missed writing here so much some days that I consider starting it up again. On others I’m relieved to be able to focus on other ventures, and adventures. But in case you’re finding yourself here at 20-Nothings.com for the very first time, I wanted to be …

PRINTABLE: Quarantine Date Night Deck

Jessie Rosen - March 27, 2020

First and foremost I hope this post finds you healthy and safely indoors. These are – I can’t even find the right word to describe them – times, and the better we all stay safely quarantined, the sooner they’ll be behind us all. I’m writing from Los Angeles where my husband, dog and I have been (mostly) indoors since Thursday, March 12th. That’s 14, 75 …

The 35th Birthday Freak Out

Jessie Rosen - August 8, 2018

Six months ago I was freaked out about turning 35. Mid-thirties. Five years to forty. The age at which any pregnancy becomes a geriatric pregnancy. And so I did what I do when a freak out of any variety sets in: I made an action plan. I would spend the next six months working to finally and fully resolve all the gastrointestinal issues that have …

Thank You and Goodbye…For Now

Jessie Rosen - December 8, 2017

Ten years ago I was a 24-year-old girl living in a 4th-floor hovel in New York, New York. I had a job, but it wasn’t going to be my career. I had a guy, but he wasn’t going to be my one. And I had the perfect group of friends, but none of us knew what the hell we were doing. I felt lost. I felt …

Why I’m Quitting Being a Blogger So That I Can Be a Writer

Jessie Rosen - December 6, 2017

I started this blog for three reasons: 1.Because Pierson told me to start this blog. We were gchatting and emailing to no end about all the confusions of post-college life and he said, we should start a blog. For the record I said, I don’t know if that’s a good idea… And then a day later, But if we’re starting this blog then it has to be called 20-Nothings.  …

Why You Should Start a Blog, and Keep it for 10 Years

Jessie Rosen - December 4, 2017

  There are very few things I can recommend that you do with absolute and complete certainty that I am right. I recommend that you make a budget for your wedding. I recommend that you moisturize your skin even if you feel like you already have oily skin. I recommend that you do not get into 5K worth of credit card debt your first year …

How To Hate All Men, But Love Your Husband

Jessie Rosen - November 30, 2017

Last night my friend Amy turned to me during a boys-behaving-badly scene in a movie we were watching and said, “I hate all men.”   And I said, “I hate all men, too.” And then, under my breath, I said the very next thing that popped into my mind: But not my husband. My husband is a wonderful man in a very real and non gender specific …

The Beginning of The End of The Blog

Jessie Rosen - November 13, 2017

December 8th marks the 10th birthday of this blog, my blog. I’ve decided it will also be the last official day of posting. After a full decade of writing, it’s time for this chapter to come to an end. Why?  Because 10 years is an amount of time that makes me incredibly proud. Because new creative projects have become important to me, like focusing more …

Meet My New “Student”: The Canswer Man

Jessie Rosen - November 2, 2017

A few months ago my Dad called. “Was it all a bad dream?” I asked before I even said hello. He laughed but said no. This was not his own Bob Newart moment. He did, as the doctors had suspected, have cancer. I’m sure we both said a lot of other things after that, but I don’t remember anything until this: “But, I have an …
