Where am I and what is going on?

Hey, you!

Welcome. So glad you could join us. Pull up a chair, boil the kettle, and settle in. We’ve got a lot to talk about.

You’ve come to the place for all things about life in your 20s. This website is run by Michelle Andrews, an editor, and journalist at Mamamia and co-host of independent podcast ‘Shameless’, who has also had work published by The Huffington Post USShe began The 20s Diary from her bedroom on her 20th birthday and is getting a disconcerting kick out of writing this in third person so will stop immediately.


Here, nothing is off limits – not The Bachelor, #MeToo, your bank balance, or that Instagram model who you kinda hate but also can’t stop stalking.

I want to chat about it all. With you. Because you’re snazzy and I like you.

If you’re a long-time reader and are wondering where all the old posts scurried off to – never fear. The 20s Diary is getting a re-vamp. It’s all going to be new, fresh, and relevant to the important shit going on in our lives right now.

The important thing is I’m back. I still work full-time in my serious job, but I missed writing things for and about my generation and I’m back. It’ll be a dip in, dip out kinda thing.

If you want to collaborate, contribute a story, or just reach out and say hi – email me at the20sdiary@gmail.com. I’m also on Facebook and Instagram.
