Intro Letter + Lots of Pineapples

Welcome to Twenties + Adulting

An Intro Letter from the Founder + Editor-in-Chief

Dear Reader,

My name is Lauren, and I am the founder and editor-in-chief of twentiesandadulting.com. I am so excited that you are here!

If you are in your twenties and don’t know what the heck is going on some days, think being in your twenties is kinda weird practically every other day, and oftentimes don’t know whether to laugh, cry, curl-up in the fetal position, or all of the above…then you have come to the right place!

From the frivolous to the serious to the mundane, we are covering it all.

Also: our official mascot is the pineapple, and we lovingly refer to ourselves and our readers as pineapples. More on that in a second.

This website only just came to be in February of 2017, so please stay in touch with us as we get this party started. You can learn about all of the ways to engage with us here. We have a lot in the works that we can’t wait to show you guys!

Now, back to the pineapples…

We adore pineapples for the fruit that they are and for what they symbolize. Sometimes, we also look at pictures of pineapples and feel like we can totally relate to them. Observe:

 

The Pineapple chilling hard on a lazy Sunday.

 

The Pineapple taking a moment after a ridiculously overwhelming day at work.

 

The Pineapple reflecting on life while staring at the sunset. “It’s just all a little strange sometimes,” it mutters. If a pineapple talks, but no one is there to hear it, does it really make a sound?

 

Two pineapples who just met on Tinder (don’t tell anyone, though; they don’t want to advertise it). I think they might actually really like each other…

Can you see it?

Pineapples are us! We are them! We are all pineapples!

In the words of one of my contributors/social media strategist + community branding guru Alejandra Lee, “We are comparing ourselves to pineapples because they are naturally these juicy, strong things with crowns (hence, power and confidence) which covers the twenties part. The whole adulting thing…fruit has to mature to be ripe!”

Pineapples are also a little prickly on the outside, and I think that life in your twenties feels a little prickly in a lot of ways. But when you get to the meat of being this age– especially if you put yourself out there as genuinely as possible– you might just find that your twenties can really be something sweet and nourishing. Maybe it’s not all prickly, after all.

And on one last note, pineapples are also a sign of hospitality in some cultures.

With the above in mind, let me be the first to say that all of us working on Twenties + Adulting are so happy that you are here! We want you to feel as welcome and at home when engaging with us as possible.

So in a big way, officially making our mascot the pineapple is us offering you a welcome gift. It symbolizes a promise from us to you to do our best to make this website as inviting and helpful as we can, so long as it shall live.

We are grateful to get to know you guys, and can’t wait for the days, weeks, months, and years ahead!

Peace + Pineapples,

Lauren King Savage
